The bottled water should be in what the French call a "gourde," e.g. a stainless steel canteen. They are all over New York now, and many come with fancy patterns on them and insulated carrying bags. The last thing Paris needs is more plastic bottles! Especially since so many people don't recycle.

I absolutely agree with you.

Daily waste recycling is very slowly gaining ground - kind of - but bottled water is as popular as ever - whereas in London and NYC it seems to be frowned upon to order it in restaurants.

So, robinet - the next big thing?
