Water Taste Test Shocks, Surprises SU Students
February 20, 2012 § Leave a comment
All day today in Schine Student Center, the Syracuse University Sustainability Club ran a water taste-test, challenging students, staff, potential students and their visiting parents to try to guess which type of water were which. The participants were presented with unmarked samples of bottled, filtered, and tap water, and asked to choose a favorite and then guess which was which.
Many participants were shocked to learn that they preferred certain types to others – though it was especially nice to see that many more people preferred the tap and filtered-tap water over bottled water. Even those who did prefer the bottled variety were shocked to learn the environmental and health dangers of drinking bottled water, and were excited and enthused to find out the benefits of filters and reusable bottles, especially when they learned about the new filling stations in Schine and Bird Library.Congrats to the Sustainability Club for an incredibly successful and informative event!
