If you’re properly disgusted, here are a few ways you can help destroy the bottled water industry:
- Don’t buy bottled water. Get a reusable water bottle. The savings will add up.I carry a Brita® Sport Water Bottle everywhere connected by carabiner to my backpack or fanny pack!
- Rally your schools, workplaces, and communities to ban bottled water.
- Demand that your city, state, and federal governments invest in better water infrastructure.
