Plas­tic wa­ter bot­tles serve a need

Re: Plas­tic wa­ter bot­tles should be next ban (Point of View, July 7)

I am for try­ing to save our en­vi­ron­ment. I re­cy­cle as much as pos­si­ble, but I don’t agree with ban­ning plas­tic wa­ter bot­tles.

I am a truck driver and I don’t have ac­cess to tap wa­ter on de­mand.

Peo­ple say buy re­us­able con­tain­ers and fill them. Well, I don’t get home ev­ery day, and some places truck driv­ers go don’t have proper bath­rooms for us to use, nev­er­mind drink­able wa­ter.

Also, we can’t just stop any­where we want like other mo­torists can.

As long as peo­ple prop­erly re­cy­cle plas­tic wa­ter bot­tle, I don’t see a need for a ban. Todd MacDougall
