Clyde Grubbs gets keyed up — can I type that with a hint of mocking? his tone is hardly strident — about the folly of bottled water. It bothers me, if for no other reason than bottled watter (apart from gallon jugs to tide one over a hurricane) seems like a waste of money and plastic.
Reminds me of the campaign Paris has to drink the eau de Paris. The municipal water authority has even distributed special carafes (an award winning design) to restaurants to encourage people to drink from the common tap. Sounds like a good idea to me. I note how refreshing the tap water of New York and Rome is: a municipal benefit hardly mentioned, and DC’s isn’t bad. (Though a tad lead-heavy in areas. A filter helps.)
I wish I read French: Eau de Paris
