Bottled v. tap water: students voted, results are in

After surveying people in the Rogalski Center food court, GreenLife found that twice the amount of people actually preferred tap water to bottled water.
“We had jugs filled with bottled water, filtered tap water and straight tap water,” GreenLife’s Abby Tichler said. “We had over 100 students vote.”
Instead of purchasing bottled water, Tichler suggests that students choose to use reusable bottles.
“Carrying a reusable bottle is the same as carrying a plastic bottle of water,” she said.
Tichler said that since students  could not detect a difference in taste between bottled and tap water, they have no reason to continue buying bottled water.
GreenLife meets Thursdays at 5 p.m. in the Beehive and all are welcome to join. For more information, contact GreenLife President Lizzy Oberhoffer or Vice President Kemper Rusteberg.
