New at Temple University: Water Bottle Refill Stations

I saw one of these in California not too long ago, then I heard about one in Delaware, and now they’re happening at the new architecture building at Temple University: water bottle refill stations.  A pretty simple concept- get a drink of water, refill a bottle with water.

What I didn’t notice is that they have a readout on them that shows how much waste has been eliminated through refilling your bottle.  Bottled water sucks, plain and simple.

Not sure how you can hate on this one.  Tests have shown over and over that tap water trumps bottled water in both quality and taste.  While I’m at it, I’ll remind you to check out The Story of Bottled Water if you haven’t seen it yet (some of the video comments might depress you, but isn’t that the case with everything on Youtube?).
