Bundanoon outshines the G8. It bans bottled water.

Bundanoon, a rural town in New South Wales, Australia, has voted overwhelmingly to ban the sale of bottled water over concerns about its environmental impact. It may be the first community in the world to have such a ban. 350 residents turned out to vote at the public meeting in the town hall. Only one resident voted against the ban, along with a representative from the bottled water industry. The ban has been supported by shopkeepers in the town, which has a population of about 2,500. Wouldn’t it be nice if the G8 could get it right like that too.
