I Heart NYC Tap Water!
July 8, 2010 § 1 Comment
Thanks, New York! This is the coolest thing I’ve seen all day. Stop buying bottled water and drink New York City tap instead! You can buy this decanter and other non-disposable-plastic items. Why in the world would you continue purchasing water in a so-called disposable plastic bottle, I ask you?
Dan and I were getting water delivered in giant really heavy glass bottles from Mountain Valley Spring Water. But we were never that thrilled about the taste, plus it’s expensive, and then the other day when workers were working on our elevator, MVSW left our delivery in the lobby (we’re on the 7th floor) , and refused to make a trip back to pick up our empties once the elevator was back in order. That was the last straw for Dan, who refuses to be plagued by water delivery people. (Those Poland Spring jerkoffs got the boot a few years back for even worse shenanigans.) So now we’re contemplating the Britta. Britta-People, any thoughts? Like, dislike? I’ve always liked the taste of NYC tap, but I had read an article a few years ago about the water tunnels #1 and #2, and how they’re digging #3 now because 1 and 2 are so old. I got worried that 1 and 2 might be letting impurities into my water. I suppose this is stupid because, like, I let them spray pesticide in my apartment to protect me from cockroaches. Why worry about one and not the other? I’m sure all the toxins in the world are responsibile for my infertility. Drinking bottled water for the last 10 years hasn’t really helped in that area, now has it? But I’m back on board with tap water, and I should also be putting my money where my mouth is. Or, not put my money where my water dispenser is. Or something like that.
