Why is Bundanoon banning bottled water? why would you ban bottled water? well the reason is one bottle of water is equevilent of 200ml of oil, and also 1000l of bottled water would cost $3000 and 1000l of tap water would cost $1.20.
Do you know why we would die if we didn’t have water? Because 60% of our whole body is made of water, infact our brain is made of 70%water, our lungs are made of 80% water and our bones are made up of 20 % water
the water industry is doing really well and i think they’re doing really well because alot of people are going out so they buy there water and people like bottled and flavoured water although tap water i healthier for you for you. With the bottled people just chuck the bottles on the floor which is bad for the environment.
i think bottled water is needed under some circumstances like in a flood when all the water is not very helthy for you and when your know where near anything so you cant get tapped water . I think you should ban bottled water bu some issues will still be adreesed.
if we ban bottled water more people would drink tap water so they couldn’t chuck their bottles away but but then all there will be on the shelves will be very unhealthy drinks which isnt very good. so there’s alot of ways this can go and i hope they make the right decision
As you might know in the Northern Territory there is a great, big red ROCK but this is not just any rock this rock is the famous Uluru. Uluru has been in this world for Decades. But at the moment it has being I dears of closing it down to climbers.
There are two sides to the argument so I am going to write about them both. If Uluru was to be closed down it would be closed down permanently! Some people agree and some people disagree. One of the main reasons for this is because of the native people, they do not want people climbing Uluru because of spiritual reasons also because it is a very dangerous climb, people have died and because of littering. But if Uluru was to be closed down we would be closing down a MAJOUR TOURIST ATRACTION which would be bad did you know that Uluru is 348 metres high and that Uluru dates back over 500 million years and that in 1920, part of Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park was declared an Aboriginal Reserve there is so much history in this Rock.
So personally I think that the indigenes people should be the ones to chose wether you can climb it but you should still be able to look at it what do you think put your vote into the
In Bundanoon, they have banned bottled water. All of the bottles have been removed around that area. Bundanoon are banning plastic water bottles because they are worrying about the waste they are making.
It cost $3000 dollars per 1,000 lirtes for pre bottled water, it cost $1.20 for tap water, it is an exspensive cost for pre bottled water.
Drinking water helps keep our body hydrated and cool. It is essential that we drink water every day to keep healthy. There is 70% percent water in your brain, 90% percent water in your lungs, 20% percent water in your bones and about 80% percent in your blood.
I think the bottle industry is booming because people buy them when they forget to fill up the reusable water bottles on the trip somewhere, so they buy plastic bottles from shops.
Most people rely on plastic bottles every day beacuse they are quicker to get and more reliable. The only downside is that they use 200ml of oil to make a 1 litre plastic bottle. All the bottles of water end up in the waste and create’s a lot of polution.
This BTN story is about water being used in bottles and should they be banned. It wastes water and plastic. What I think is water should be in the glass bottles filled up with water from the taps.
Bundaloons banned the sale of bottled water because we are wasting too much plastic each day. Human body is made up of 60% of water and human beings need to drink at least 6-8 glasses of water each day. Water helps with many things keeping you hydrated throughout the day, takes away other pains, and keeps you alive.The bottle industry is ‘booming’ because people each day buy about 1000L bottles of water of tap water costs $1.20, although water that has al ready been used can be $3000.
Other people say it should be banned because it is using up a lot of resources when we drink bottled water. Its easy to use big glass jugs because you can use it again.
Bottled water is needed when its really hot and you really need a drink.
I think its fair to ban bottled water because the machines are using a lot of energy and resources. I think we should use glasses.
Do you know if Kevin Rudd gave ownership of Uluru to the indigenous people? Well I’m pretty sure when Kevin Rudd apologized to the indigenous people he also gave ownership of Uluru to them too. The indigenous people are now fuming because they want to preserve the paintings that their ancestors wrote centuries ago they also want to look after Uluru for spiritual reasons. I reckon they should let a certain number of people climb Uluru a day and only from 5am-10am, this would mean that everyone has to be off Uluru by 10am and the indigenous people get it from 10am-5am . Back to Kevin Rudd, at the end of the day Kevin Rudd and the government get the final say if people are still allowed to climb Uluru. Is this fair? I don’t think so because Kevin Rudd gave ownership of Uluru to the indigenous people so they should decide. What do you think and why?
On BTN today they said both sides of the argument have 2 months and then the government will decide if you will still be allowed to climb Uluru or not. The indigenous people have lived around Uluru and on Uluru for centuries. Uluru is located in the northern Territory. If you do want to climb Uluru you might want to go do that now just in case they do close it. Uluru is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Australia and closing Uluru will have a big impact on the amount of people going to the Northern Territory, so hopefully everyone gets a chance to climb Uluru because it would have a great view! Some tourists will just take pictures of Uluru so not everyone climbs Uluru, because some don’t have the strength.

Bottled water. A thing your family might have every day. But is it good for you or the environment? Thats what the people of Bundanoon have thought about. They’ve banned bottled water for good.
The town of Bundanoon is located in NSW.They have banned bottled water simply because it uses too much oil and affects the environment. In fact, for every bottle of water you buy, it uses 200ml of oil. That oil (plastic) is thrown away into landfill.
The water industry’s sales are increasing dramatically with half a billion dollars spent last year.People are saying it’s stupid buying bottled water when you can get water from the tap virtually free. People who disagree with banning bottled water say that more people will buy sweet drinks and that is bad for your health.
Banning bottled water will help the environment. A person agreed and said, ’I think it should be banned, it’s not very eco-friendly, and half the time you don’t know what you are drinking anyhow. I re-use my drinking water bottles many many times. I refill from the tap and keep them in the fridge, so I always have cold water. I drink a lot, so I keep at least 2 1 litre bottles plus several smaller ones to put in a cooler in there.
But there is a downside and that is that lots of people will lose their jobs and with the economic crisis, they will struggle to get a job. A person who disagrees about banning water said,’ banning it is too far still because so many people rely on water bottles for a quick grab-and-go drink.’
But everyone still needs water.60% of the human body is water. The brain is 70% water. The lungs are 90% water. The blood is more than 80% water and the bones about 20%. Water is needed to digest food, transport nutrients, get rid of waste and control our temperature. If you get de-hydrated there will be no water to do all these things and therefore you will feel ill. On some occasions you might need bottled water for natural disasters such as bushfires and floods because the water gets contaminated.
If you ask for my opinion about bottled water, I would request to ban them to help the environment. If I were the prime minister when bottled water came out, I would have rejected it in the first place.
