Red Cross Water Bottles: Then and Now

As you know, the Red Cross has been around for a long time. Longer even than, say, water bottles. This photo, found in the historical archives and dating from the 1918 influenza epidemic, shows how the Red Cross USED to distribute water.

Well, as much as we appreciate the efforts of this nurse at the Correy Hill Hospital in Brookline, Massachusetts, we’ll still choose for our 2010 water to come outfitted in shiny bottles like this one! Plastic water bottles are a large source of trash in landfills, so why don’t you skip the plastic and use one of these shiny, durable metal bottles? Fill it from your trusty water tap or filtration pitcher and go!

Better than a fire hydrant, I think. (Not a method the Red Cross endorses nowadays, folks. Just so you know.)
