The biggest growth in bottled beverages isn't beer or soft drinks or juices; It's water. Bottled water is the single largest growth area among all beverages, that includes alcohol, juices and soft drinks. Per capita consumption has more than doubled over the last decade.

Created 3/17/2010 8:06:52 AM 
Los Angeles is starting an innovative new pilot program. About 15,000 homes will be eligible for the program.

Apparently, the total tally could reach the equivalent of $400 a year per household.
