We asked researchers, regulators, authors, and activists what they pour for themselves: bottled or tap, filtered or straight?
“Tap water. I also drink seltzer from a home delivery service.”
— Michael Pollan, food activist and the author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma
“At home, we’re insistent on tap water. Our kids carry refillable containers to sports and things like that. Our offices at the EPA are in a historical building where we’ve had some concerns about the pipes, so we filter.”
— Lisa Jackson, head of the EPA
“Tap water. This nation has sunk incredible amounts of money and talent into making sure everyone has access to clean drinking water. Now people prefer to buy water that’s been sitting on a shelf in a plastic bottle. To me, this is folly defined.”
— Bill McKibben, environmentalist and the author of Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet
“Filtered tap water. I use a whole-house filter to cut down on disinfection by-products—the chlorine that disinfects water sometimes creates other dangerous compounds.”
— Jane Houlihan, senior vice president for research at the Environmental Working Group

My cat just walked up to the paper shredder and said, “Teach me everything you know.”
“Just because you can’t dance doesn’t mean you shouldn’t dance.” —Alcohol
