The Water Button
I’ve written about the Dash Button before (a wi-fi button you stick to a surface of your home, and then press when you want more of the button’s labeled product to be delivered.) But this one tops them all: water is loaded into plastic bottles made from crude oil, driven on a series of trucks that burns crude oil, and dropped on your doorstep, because you don’t like the taste of tap water.
(Yes, I’m aware that there are certain specific situations where you would need, rather than want, bottled water. That doesn’t explain the electrolyte-water Dash Button, the condom Dash Button, or for that matter, the one for Stacy’s Pita Chips.)
