It wasn’t too long ago that bottled water was a bit of a luxury.  Today, bottled water is so common that the waste from the bottles has become controversial.

The Student Assembly at the University of Michigan has passed a resolution asking the university to stop selling bottled water on campus. reports:

The resolution calls bottled water wasteful and environmentally damaging and demands that the university stop selling it completely. It states that just 20 percent of plastic water bottles are recycled.

During the 2010 fiscal year, the university sold about 600,000 bottles of water, according to an assessment conducted by the Graham Environmental Sustainability Institute.

Nobody wants to see bottles that should be recycled end up in a landfill.  But should water bottles be banned because some people are not handling their empties responsibly?

Do you support banning bottled water?
