For the latest and greatest issue of Taste Magazine Cincinnati, I wrote an article called Tapping Designer Waters. It was an eye-opener, believe me.
I had no idea that there were so many waters out there that claim to do so much. From aligning your chakras with the earth to substituting for champagne as "Bling," I learned a lot. I’m not going to re-cap. Go pick up an issue and read it for yourself.
Writing that article has made me pay attention to water. I still have a carbon footprint a mile wide, all to myself. But I’m trying to buy water made by Nestle, when I want bottled water in the house, because they’re bottles are better for the environment. I’ve stopped ordering bottled water (like San P or Perrier) in restaurants, when tap is just fine.
Now tap is better than fine.
The Tap Project is a campaign that celebrates the clean and accessible tap water
available as an every day privilege to millions, while helping UNICEF
provide safe drinking water to children around the world.
Sunday, March 16 through Saturday, March 22, restaurants will invite
their customers to donate a minimum of $1 for the tap water they would
normally get for free. For every dollar raised, a child will have clean
drinking water for 40 days.
(This brings to mind Ethos, the water I like to purchase from Starbuck’s because it shares the same goal.)
Guess what? The Tap Project is happening in Cincinnati! A full list of restaurants appears after the jump.
Restaurant week may be ending, but World Water Week is just beginning. Help others by donating $1 for your tap water when you head out to eat.
Thanks to Julie for the tip!
