Syracuse University

Students at Syracuse University started a Sustainability Club on campus.  The students chose bottled water as their core environmental campaign and held a water taste test in the Schine Student Center Atrium on Feb. 20, 2012.  They offered unmarked samples of bottled water, tap water and filtered tap water to passing by students, and then asked which sample they preferred. Although some people correctly identified the bottled water sample, more than half of the 86 participants said they preferred the taste of the tap or filtered tap water.
