"I think the boardroom should have steel bottles instead of plastic bottles," a woman tweeted. To this Mahindra said, "Plastic bottles will be banished. We were all embarrassed to see them that day," Mahindra responded.

Several researchs suggest that refilling plastic bottles again and again could actually be harmful to your health. That's because the plastic bottle you're constantly replenishing isn't made to be re-filled - meaning it could have the potential to leach chemicals and harbour harmful bacteria.
