 L'eau infusée, la boisson fraîche bonne pour la planète

Alcohol in general has a heavy carbon footprint, particularly because of the large amount of water required to manufacture it. Sodas are generally sold in plastic bottles, while coffee and tea are imported from the other side of the world. Fruit juice seems like a good alternative in theory, but a lot of fruit is imported.
