Glee star Matthew Morrison will be hosting Dasani’s “Plant Model Fashion Show” to celebrate their new bottles that use 30% plant based material.
The models will wear plant ensembles designed by Yotam Solomon. Each piece will be made on site. We’re assuming that’s because as cool as a crocus might look on a person, its shelf life is pretty limited.
For those of us who like to see a little skin, each model will only have up to 30% of their skin covered to mirror the percentage of plants used in Dasani’s water bottles. Does that mean that when, hopefully, Dasani switches to 100% plant materials for their bottles that their fashion shows will feature models covered from head to toe in leafy greens?
Of course we’re thrilled that less plastic is being used in Dasani’s disposable bottles. However, if you really want to honor Earth Day, go out and get yourself a reusable bottle you can take with you anywhere. It’s cheaper and better for the environment.
While Dasani’s bottles are recyclable, a sad truth is that less than 3 out of every 10 plastic bottles are actually put in a recycling bin as opposed to a trash can. In addition, so many resources are spent shipping a beverage most people in the USA can get out of their tap. So while we applaud Dasani’s efforts to green their bottles, buying water is not the most green choice out there.
