Best quotes from the article are from Ms. Hill herself:
1. “We’re trashing our planet, all because of greed.”
2. “I’m going to work until I drop on this,” she said. “If you believe in something, you have to persist and you have to have a thick skin.”Click on the title above or go to http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/23/us/23water.html?src=sch&pagewanted=all to read about Jean Hill and her role in making Concord, MA the first plastic water bottle banned state. You'll find out all about it here in the New York Times article "Where Thoreau Lived, Crusade Over Bottles." Don't forget to watch the "Battle Over the Bottle" video too!
Great article, NY Times! Way to go, Ms. Hill!!
