America on Tap
America on Tap is our yearlong effort to make a difference for the environment by helping to reduce the consumption of bottled water. 85% of plastic bottles end up in landfills. It takes 1,000 years for the average plastic bottle to biodegrade. Reducing the amount of disposable water bottles purchased can have a direct effect on the amount of bottles that ultimately ends up in landfills.
Water is essential to life, but you have a choice when it comes to where you get your water. Pledge allegiance to the tap and do your part for the environment by promising to drink tap water instead of purchasing disposable bottles of water. To join the growing community of people who have taken the pledge, click here. Once you register, you'll be able to see the difference you'll be making.
Remember the counter on our homepage? That's the amount of disposable water bottles we can prevent from going into landfills. When you take the pledge you can contribute to that number and do something good for the environment. And don't forget to spread the word to your friends, because the more people who take the pledge, the bigger the difference we can make. We're all in this together, so check back often to see our progress.
Tap for Tap
Join us on April 20th as we celebrate our 125th anniversary of delivering reliability, responsibility, service, innovation and excellence to our customers and our communities. On that day, and over the following months, we'll be sponsoring "Tap for Tap" events. These events will showcase local and professional tap dancers performing in our communities to encourage Americans to use tap water instead of bottled water. We'll be adding our events to the Events calendar, so check back frequently to see if we will be hosting an event in your area.
