The New York City water logo will soon appear on glasses, coasters and t-shirts.
The Department of Environmental Protection teamed up with with dinner and glassware store Fishs Eddy to create a line of products that promote the city's world-class drinking water.
The store on 19th Street and Broadway in Gramercy set up a "DEP Water-On-The-Go Station," seen above, where New Yorkers could fill up on water fresh from the tap.
The partnership was struck during National Drinking Water Week, a celebration of the importance of high-quality drinking water to the public health.
"This partnership is a great way for us to get our message out for people to take home a permanent reminder that they should be drinking New York City tap water," said DEP Commissioner Cas Holloway.
Fishs Eddy now has a special display of the NYC Water merchandise at its store to promote the new line of products, which is also available online.
