With an optical trick, this German bottle of water is trying to prove its effectiveness for the body. Though drinking water is a necessity for life, the downside of this product is, that it takes approximately 8 litres of virtual water to produce 1 litre of bottled water. Drinking water may look good on the body... The carbon footprint is BIG AND FAT.

So I should stop drinking water because it's bad for the environment. That and eating and breathing (consumes O2, releases CO2). Why not just say it plainly and ask that we all kill ourselves to save Mother Earth.
