Kevin Bacon Is Horrified By Bottled Water Waste

The Denver Post is carrying an interview of sorts with Kevin Bacon on his hometown of Philadelphia; what it was like to grow up there, the vibe of the city, etc.

Bacon also touches on his environmental ways — talking up walking, public transportation, tap water, and the green groove of his band, The Bacon Brothers. Here’s a highlight:

“I walk at least 40 blocks every day and use public transportation,” says Bacon. “When I go to Philly, I don’t drive. Why would I want to get into a car and sit in bumper-to-bumper traffic when I can take the train to downtown Philly? There’s a fantastic book called “You Are Here,” by Thomas Kostigen, that I wrote the foreword for, and he walks you through some of the consequences of our daily actions. I tread lightly talking about this because sometimes it can backfire. On the other hand, I feel that maybe I can do my part in some small way to show by example that it’s not that hard to lead an eco-friendly lifestyle. One of the things we do with the Bacon Brothers is encourage people to fill their water bottles up with tap water or from the fountain. Tap water is not bad for you. The Bacon Brothers even sell aluminum water bottles, not that you have to use ours. I’m horrified at the amount of plastic bottles that get thrown away every day.”

Alec Baldwin wants turkey-less Thanksgiving, ignores other animals

No less turkeys would be saved if Baldwin and Farm Sanctuary asked people to go vegan.


If you only want a less-cruel turkey industry, you don’t give a shit about turkeys

There’s more than enough out their promoting the use of animals already- can’t animal rights activists agree to be the ones who say stop it and mean it?


Vandalism and aggression won’t help veganism

These acts of intimidation and aggression don’t change public perspective on veganism for the better, and that’s the only thing that will help animals.
