Something's buggin' me

Does anyone have a direct line of communication with one of those close to Bernie? I watch him speak here and there and always with a damned disposable, plastic water bottle for him to sip from. Always with the label removed, but a pollution-worthy disposable bottle, nonetheless. Can't we get him a refillable water bottle to use for all the world to see?
How many of you have seen the posting today about the dying Sperm Whales and all the plastic junk that was clogging their gut? How many have read about Nestle and their determination to extract precious groundwaters from California and sell them around the globe (while paying literally NOTHING for that water!)?
I hate those damned water bottles and usually refuse one when offered. Can't we get Bernie a personal, reuseable bottle as a visible indicator of his stance on the environment? Maybe an official "Bernie Bottle" that could be a donation perk! As well as "show us your shirts", there could be "A toast to Berners!" with Bernie Bottles held high. Maybe with a logo of a bird sipping from a bird bath. But that's just fanciful stuff. The thrust would be simply him avoiding the infernal, land-fill engorging disposable water bottle.

1. Down here we have water in bottles that are "green" and are degradable (finally). But I agree OPTICS

are important. His voice is getting bad and I think it would be a big hit even if he started the speech and had someone like Killer Mike and others finished it. Everyone knows what he stands for and just want to see him do it would not be any problem. A little drama never hurts.

2. There easy you don't have to wash them on the road and convenient ready to serve.

He travels so much he needs to not bother with refilling and washing a container.

6. Wha heck!

 

There we GO! Couldn't be THAT hard to have them sent ahead of his schedule if need be. I'd sport for the cost of a bunch of them if that's what it took.

4. Good point!

I highly recommend this one!

I've carried one for 4 years now, they are nearly indestructible.

5. Actually just yesterday or the day before

I saw him using a tall clear glass or cup. Wide mouth. His podium kept vibrating and it was all I could do to try to reach into my tv screen and take ahold of that thing. I kept waiting for it to fall off! It never did.
