New York City embraces its tap water

Drink NYC Water

NYC embraces it’s tap water, which is considered to be among the best in the world.

Just two weeks ago, we wrote about the many accolades that New York tap water has received. Tap’d NY, for example, bottles New York’s tap water and sells it. The Famous New York Baking Water Corp. replicates the water New York City is so well-known for and then sells it to bakeries and restaurants hoping to recreate the pizzas, breads and bagels of The Big Apple.

But these companies aren’t the only ones trying to capitalize on New York City’s tap water. The CityStore, the official store of New York City, is now selling water decanters, glasses, coasters and t-shirts that feature the words “Drink NYC Water” pouring from a faucet.

New York City is obviously proud of its tap water, and rightly so. In a 2008 report, New York City Department of Environmental Protection hinted at this new campaign. The report also mentioned the ways in which drinking tap water is better not only for the environment, but also for your wallet (drinking two liters of tap water every day adds up to only 50 cents a year!). The city is also adding more water fountains around New York to ensure NY’s tap water can be had throughout the city.
