to recycle them with plastics, which they are not."It has to be put in a controlled environment," he said, "where we can pick those bottles up and get them to a compost site."

By By Neil H. Simon Media General News ServiceThe Alton, Va. based water company unveiled its new Green Bottle Spring Water in a Capitol Hill cafeteria Tuesday as part of the House of Representatives effort to reduce its impact on the environment."I think this is the wave of the future," said Robert Smith, owner of Grand Springs. "I think it where we need to be in this country."The House chose Grand Springs for its proximity about 230 miles from Washington, according to Perry Plumart, director of the Capitol green special projects."The water tastes good and they close simple as that," he said.Customers in the House office building cafeterias mostly congressional staff and visitors buy about 100,000 bottles of water annually. The Virginia water costs $1.60 per bottle."It a double hit," said Rep. Virgil Goode, R 5th. "You going to get great water and in a compostable bottle here that won hurt Converse Shoes Womens Grey landfills."Goode, who called the water "delicious," said he was assured the taste would not be affected by the new environmentally friendly packaging.The bottles themselves come from Naturally Iowa, a company which specializes in sustainable packaging and says Converse Wedding Shoes Bridal

it only sells to customers who collect the bottles and keep them out of landfills.More than 94 billion plastic bottles have ended up in landfills so far this year, according to the Container Recycling Institute.The House began a composting program in 2007 which replaced all plastic utensils and plates with biodegradable products. Now virtually everything customers get in a House cafeteria, except for plastic lids to coffee cups or soup bowls, is fully compostable.The program has resulted in House Food Services reducing its waste to landfills by 80 percent, Plumart said. House, a program that has cost taxpayers about $2 million this year "an investment in the future," Plumart calls it.Since Plumart started in 2007, a new machine was installed in a basement room behind the cafeteria in the Longworth House Office Building to shred the cafeteria waste.In room B237A staff quickly sort through bags of trash, feeding everything from salad plates to pizza crusts into a machine that turns it all into a pulp before it is shipped to a compost site in Maryland.The waste goes from trash to topsoil in about 90 days, Plumart said.As for the new green bottle, it is made from polylactic acid, or PLA, which is a resin that has been dubbed plastic.

comes from a fermenting process that involves removing the sugar from the corn, fermenting the sugar, and then removing the water leaving behind the resin.Plumart said he hopes local community leaders visiting the Capitol will be inspired by the environmentally friendly policies they see in action during their lunch breaks."If they doing it at the House, we can do it anywhere," he said.But some environmentalists campaigning to reduce the commercializing of water say the House should stop selling any bottled water."In a lot of ways it missing the larger point," said Patti Lynn, campaigns director for Corporate Accountability International. "They should go a step further and just get the House of Representatives off of bottle water and throw their weight behind tap water."Backers of the new biodegradable bottle say the new bottles are good choice for a consumer culture that never fully embraced recycling, let alone composting."If they would put (bottles) in a recycle bin, we would not be having this conversation," said Smith, who first began looking into developing the environmentally friendly PLA bottles about two years ago.Green Bottle Spring Water will not be sold outside of the House, Smith said, because people would try Converse Black Shoes
