Have you heard that the City of Ottawa intends to spend over a million bucks to encourage us to drink Ottawa’s tap water? Among other things, they’re going to buy two Watermobiles to deliver water to us at festivals and events, and they’re going to make a video about how great our tap water is.
I already drink tap water. I never got sucked into the whole bottled water thing. Why would I spend money on expensive bottled water when tap water is practically free and readily available and much better for the environment?
That being said, I still don’t want to spend a million bucks to convince others to drink tap water. I figure most of us are already drinking tap water, and a “Watermobile” isn’t likely to convince the rest. Maybe we should just ban bottled water altogether.
