Drink Local: Reduce Your Water Footprint
By drinking local water, you can reduce your water footprint and your carbon footprint. Bottled water has several negative impacts on the environment. Bottle production, distribution, packaging, and transportation contribute to unnecessary water and carbon footprints. Additionally, most plastic water bottles are not recycled, contributing to the waste stream and often ending up as litter and ocean pollution. Drinking water in the US is well tested and safe to drink. Drink local and avoid bottled water!
