New York City’s “big soda ban” is supposed to help fight obesity, and the week-old Barclays Center, the home of the Nets, should be commended for capping the sizes of sugary drinks at 16 ounces. But here’s the problem: Soda is now cheaper than water at the new stadium. So guests now have an economic incentive to buy the less healthy option. Yeah, we’re calling this one a BAD DEAL.
Or they could just bring their own empty bottle and fill it from the water fountain, which is FREE.
Most bottled water is just plain old tap water anyway. There’s no good reason to EVER pay $4.50 for that, regardless of what soda costs.
Stop buying bottled water, people!
