Thermos Wants Us To Use Public Water Fountains

In their latest effort to stop people's wasteful use of plastic water bottles (I definitely just ruined my chances for covering the next Ozarka app), Thermos, the "leading manufacturer of vacuum-insulated reusable beverage bottles," has come out with OasisPlaces.

"OasisPlaces is a lifestyle user-generated app used to locate accessible public water fountains in cities across the United States and Canada." Once you are a registered user, you can GPS tag (or type in the address of) public water fountains, wherever they may be. In a stroke of genius, the app even lets you rate the fountains for their "coldness, cleanliness, location and flavor."

Being a kid raised in the "public water fountain" generation, I definitely appreciate a cold blast of water coming from a water fountain. I'm a bit turned off by the germy little kids that slobber all over them, but I guess what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Right?

Go save some plastic trees and download the app, it's free!
