Tap'd NY: The Anti-Bottled Water, Bottled Water

Good Morning all!

I had heard about this company a while back, but the great SwissMiss reminded me this morning about Tap'd.

"Tap'dNY is a New York City bottled water company with a local twist and knack for honesty. We don't travel the world from Fiji to France seeking water or offer the usual bottled water gimmicks. We work with NYC’s public water system to source the world's best tasting tap water, purify it through reverse osmosis and bottle it locally, leaving out ludicrous transportation miles."

Of course, at the beginning this sounded a little cookoo to me, but there are times when you are on the go and realize you have forgotten your Sigg Bottle and your dying for a drink. So, in times like that...go local!

Here's a link to their manifesto.
Here's a link to the DEP (Department of Environmental Protection) NY Water Quality Report.
And here's a link to the Wiki for the Ashokan Reservoir. It is in the beautiful Catskills and is one of the 19 reservoirs and 3 lakes that supply NYC with water.

I'm thirsty!

The Anti-Bottled Water bottled water? ...Reminds me of AdBuster's anti-Nike/Converse "Converses." Of course, with much better intention. Buying local is definitely a positive thing for any city. Glad to see the NYC is making use of their natural resources and making a deal out of it.
