Bottled Water – can we find a silver lining?

We Westerners are told to stop using single use plastic bottled water - it’s an environmental disaster causing cubic miles of plastic waste, and it’s expensive (several thousand times the price of tap water in Melbourne).  Our environmental and ethical duty in Australia is probably to buy a re-usable drink bottle and use tap water to refill it.

But once in a developing country, this can be practically impossible!
