Executive Office of the President

Tap water is good enough for the President

The President can provide by example a push toward improving city water plumbing systems by eliminating serving size bottled water in the White House. 16 to 20 oz bottles cause add a significant amount of waste on our land fills. A lot of this water comes from overseas, according to the label, which implies American jobs were not needed to produce either extract the water, produce the bottle, or sell it to us. Americans love to be the example and be led by good examples. Start in the biggest house, the White House, and show us the water out of our sinks here in America is good enough for our leader. The money saved from importing water (plastics, oil, water, taxes, the list goes on...) can be saved by creating local jobs in cities to clean up local water supplies. A few small businesses to repair plumbling and design and install better faucets might also be created. Peronally, I prefer no filters.
