Do not get bottled water
Instead of bottled water get a reusable container to carry water. Also you can get a filter to make your home tap taste more like bottled water. It is definitely more cost efficient.

What’s it all about? The proposed Bullington Cross Wind Farm
EDF Renewable Energy has submitted a planning application to build a wind farm at the junction of the A34 and A303 at Bullington Cross in North Hampshire. The farm straddles three separate council areas – Basingstoke and Deane, Test Valley and Winchester. HEG want the community to have partial ownership of the farm. In principle EDF Renewable Energy have agreed to this.

Bullington Cross is one of the very few suitable sites in Hampshire for a wind farm because:

– It’s situated at the cross roads of two of the county’s busiest roads.
– It’s 3km away from the nearest village.
– It’s not in a national park or area of outstanding natural beauty.
– It’s in one of the windiest spots of the county.
– The land can still be used for agriculture, as it is now.
