The real reason they do that isn't for environment. Its the same reason you shouldn't give infants plastic bottles -- It is bad for you. Plastic can be made biodegradable... But theres a catch to that, you have a small chance of drinking small microscopic plastic particles when drinking out of those plastic bottles. It can cause kidney problems, liver diseases, plastic build up can cause improper nutrient intake in your whole body. Causing cancers, and bunch of other malnutrition problems in you.
Companies use plastic bottles because its cheapers and they use they biodegradable plastic as it is a requirement and some companies just do not want to spend extra money on quality bottles. There is no glass water bottle out there. So what the blogger is missing, it is a regulation against plastic bottles, not water. Just so happens that you can't find water in a glass. As the glass bottle would be the most expensive thing you purchase buying the water. You may start seeing the space pouces filled with water (like capri-sun) that are mainly tin foil.
