Take Back the Tap! Take the Pledge on March 16th!

Take Back the Tap!

Food & Water Watch will also be on hand presenting information to urge us to take the pledge to choose tap water over bottled!
We believe water should be safe, accessible and affordable for all; that clean water is a basic human right and a public service, not a corporate commodity.
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.
Sunday March 16th 9 AM to 2 PM

Corner of Grand View & Venice, Mar Vista, CA.
