Lessen Impact Challenge: Water Week

It's Water Week here at FourFront Design and the final days of the Lessen Impact Challenge.

This morning, Steve set up a water sampling taste test with four water sources to compare: A) filtered water from the office, B) bottled water (Smart Water brand), C) water from Steve's well at home, and D) regular City water from the tap.

Here are the results:

Steve's well water received the most votes for the best tasting water, while the City water and filtered water received the most votes for the worst tasting water. There seemed to be a wide range of opinions, with some of the sources receiving similar amounts of votes for both the best and worst tasting water. Although this test wasn't necessarily scientific, results show that when buying bottled water, you don't necessarily get what you pay for.

We also had a great discussion about water usage in our community, and were given information about the City's rebate program for low water use toilets and high-efficiency washing machines.

Jeremy and Curt discussing the balance and finish of their last sampling of water.

FourFront employees, this is the last week of the challenge, so make it count!


  1. Fun and interesting! Loving this project!

  2. Anyone know of a car wash around town that recycles the water?

  3. I looked the websites of a few places in town, and none appeared to reclaim the water. I'll keep looking though!
