Episode #6 — 08 April 2014 Why Do We Drink Bottled Water?

with Prof. Jim Salzman

Duke University professor Jim Salzman wrote a book titled Drinking Water: A History, in which he follows the history of water from a number of differing perspectives. In our talk, Jim addresses several of those issues and focuses on the rise of bottled water and two ongoing debates – drinking water as a commodity versus drinking water as a human right, and drinking water in the developing world provided by grey infrastructure versus drinking water provided by point of use treatment.
