L’Aqua del Sindaco

For those of you who may have missed this story in The New York Times, it’s a great one about trying to get the Italians to cut down on their bottled water consumption in favor of tap (as Trofie Wife may have mentioned at some earlier point, our grocery store has an entire room devoted to bottled water; it’s quite insane).

In Venice, they’ve delightfully denoted it "L’Aqua del Sindaco," or the mayor’s water. Martello and Trofie Wife bought a couple of bottles on our first grocery run in October and just refill them with tap water. It’s not only tasty (and good for bagel making!), but reportedly it is loaded with lots of minerals (the good kind). We must admit that when we are on the go we often end up purchasing a bottle or two, but we’re trying our best to reduce our plastic foot (mouth?) print!

Baci e gelato,

Martello e Trofie Wife
