Take the pledge to choose tap over bottled water and make it count toward your school’s rank on the campus leaderboard!
1 – 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.
2 – 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.
3 – Bottled water hurts the environment.
After millions of barrels of oil are used to produce and ship plastic water bottles, 75% end up in the garbage or our waterways instead of the recycle bin.
Take Back the Tap aims to reduce the consumption of bottled water by the UALR Community. You can also text “I Heart Tap” to 69866 to take the pledge!
