    That's assuming you are only buying water in glass, plastic, or aluminum! So many other products that we purchase we can't use a reusable water bottle, so them you have to make the choice. When I have a choice, I ALWAYS choose glass. Everything tastes much better packaged in glass. I'm glad we have glass recycling in my area so I don't have to worry about not being able to recycle my jars and bottles. Unfortunately, more and more companies are switching from glass to plastic because it weighs less and is cheaper for them to ship; also less breakage than with glass. Makes me sad every time another product I use makes the switch to glass. I buy very little in aluminum. Soda in a can tastes nasty to me. I was drinking my soda from a glass bottle, but Stewarts quit making my favorite flavor. So now I have switched to 2-liter plastic bottles of Cherry 7-up. I hate that I had to make the switch. My favorite salad dressing (Marie's) switched from glass jars to plastic last year. Broke my heart - their jars were great because you could use mason jar lids with them and recycle the plastic lid. I switched to another brand that is still in glass, but theirs is in a bottle vs. a jar which makes the bottle more difficult to clean out and reuse. At least I can still recycle it.

    I can't even FIND a place to recycle glass here in small town Oklahoma. So now what can I do?

    Tommy, I certainly hope you have invested in a reusable water bottle.
