Water Bottle

Sometimes the summer heat in Japan gets almost unbearable with its high humidity. Many people therefore carry water bottles during the summer to ease their thirst that comes from perspiring so much. Since the Japanese archipelagoes are mostly mountainous and covered with forest, Japan produces good-quality water. Tap water in most areas is good for drinking. But, for some reason, trendy people here prefer imported water, such as this one from France, despite the global water shortage. At my house in Tokyo we put purified tap water in used plastic bottles to help cut CO2 emissions.
