Take the Pledge - Take Back the Tap
Clean water is a basic human right and a public service, not a corporate commodity.
Drinking water should be safe, accessible and affordable for all.
Tap water is a better choice than bottled water, for many reasons:
- Bottled water is not safer than tap water. In fact, the federal government requires more rigorous and frequent safety testing and monitoring of municipal drinking water.
- Bottled water is thousands of times more expensive than tap water. Compare $0.002 per gallon for most tap water to a range of $0.89 to $8.26 per gallon for bottled waters
- Bottled water hurts the environment. After millions of barrels of oil are used to produce and ship plastic water bottles, 75% of them land in the garbage or our waterways instead of the recycle bin.
Take the pledge to show your support for taking back the tap.
