Breaking the Bottled Water Habit in Your Community
What’s the problem with bottled water?
It seems like everywhere we go, from meetings to community events, we’re offered bottled water to drink. Across the country, free public water fountains have been edged out by vending machines selling water in single-use plastic containers. But clean, safe tap water is still the best option for staying hydrated—not only is it far cheaper than bottled water, but it’s also more environmentally friendly. Bottled water creates a lot of waste, and the companies that sell it are profiting from an essential resource that should be accessible and affordable to all.
