Free Water

Bad for Pepsi and some of its workers but good for sustainability and common sense: people are remembering that water is free:

... consumers are increasingly choosing tap water over other beverages at restaurants and at home to help save money and the environment, according to PepsiCo and industry analysts. Research by William Pecoriello, an analyst at Morgan Stanley, found that 34 percent of consumers say they are reusing plastic bottles more often and 23 percent say they are cutting back on bottled beverages in favor of tap water or beverages in containers that create less waste.

Thirty three hundred people will lose their jobs because of it. I hate to be insensitive but to me those were unsustainable jobs.
