That Water Bottle Thing Again

You know how every year or so you get that forwarded e-mail about how re-using plastic water bottles can KILL KILL KILL? And how at some point you actually looked into it and found out it was all lies?

Well, now some company is trying to sell you canteens based on the lies.

Here's their site, complete with "PROTECT YOUR FAMILY" warning. The commercial I just saw during Family Ties should start playing automatically.

And here's the Snopes article about where this urban legend came from.

I wrote an e-mail to the company asking if they're purposely misleading people or if they just didn't do their research. (Note: Their point about using less plastic is valid--but then again, that's why we re-use the damn bottles.)
