VIDEO: Long Beach Water shows you Long Beach water is safe

One of the first things we saw this morning was this terrific, explanatory video from Long Beach Water not only assuring folks that Long Beach water is as safe as it’s ever been—and quite delicious, in our book—but walks them through the process it takes to get it from source to spigot.

The reason for the video is clear and necessary: folks, there’s really no reason to be hoarding bottled water when water is delivered on-demand to several sources (re: faucets) in your house.

It also makes clear that those cleaning wipes that claim to be flushable? Yeah, they’re not. Throw ’em in the trash.

Great stuff. Have a look.
