Take Back the Tap!
Did you know that up to 40% of bottled water actually comes from the tap? Corporations are bottling the water that runs out of our faucets and selling it back to us at thousands of times the price under brand names like Dasani and Aquafina. What’s worse, bottled water corporations are changing the very way that people think about water - from a human right to a high-priced commodity - all in the name of profit. And state agencies are spending taxpayer dollars to buy bottled water at high cost, while our schools suffer budget cuts!
What does this have to do with your school? To resist these efforts and protect our public water infrastructure, Think Outside the Bottle is asking individuals, schools, institutions, and local governments to pledge to support tap water over bottled water. And by getting state agencies to cancel bottled water contracts we could save state funding and reduce cuts to school budgets! You’ll also be helping to reduce the huge amount of pollution generated by the manufacture, transport and disposal of billions of plastic water bottles.
Sign the pledge today at Think Outside the Bottle
