Welcome to the Thursday food "nooooo." That's "nooooo" as in "no way", "no they didn't", or "no one in their right mind would buy that."
Here’s the first line of the press release:
Totally Organica Celebrates Earth Day One PET Bottle at a Time
Yep, you read that right. Celebrate Earth Day one plastic bottle at a time! And you know what is in those plastic bottles? Water. It’s water that’s been flavored naturally and made sparkly and certified organic by the USDA (seriously USDA – what were you thinking?)
Here’s their pathetic spin:
Totally Organica’s line of tantalizing waters includes eight tantalizing flavors; lemon lime, cranberry, green apple, raspberry, pomegranate, melon, and mint, all bottled in a stylish and narrow PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic bottle, one of the most recyclable plastics.
Totally Organica uses fully recyclable bottles to lessen the carbon footprint on Mother Earth, all while hydrating consumers with an all-natural and balanced water.
Here are a few other humdingers from the press release.
“Our PET plastic bottle is modern and chic, making it appealing to the everyday and eco-friendly consumer.”
“Consumers can be eco-chic while refreshing and hydrating their body this Earth Day.”
If you see this product on your store’s shelf, just say “nooooo!”
