Think Outside the Bottle

Learn the facts and take the pledge to fight corporate control of water.

The fight against bottled water as an expensive, ecologically harmful alternative to tap water is being advanced by a special campaign, Think Outside the Bottle, which is endorsed by several dozen of the leading organizations fighting bottled water. The project invites people to “take the pledge to Think Outside the Bottle,” which means “Opting for public tap water over bottled water; and supporting the efforts of local officials who prioritize strong public water systems over bottled water profits.” Visit the www.thinkoutsidethebottle.org for more information about the campaign, upcoming events and the cities, organizations, restaurants and others endorsing the pledge.
