  • Join Canada in Bucking Bottled Water

    More than 70 municipalities, 6 school boards, and several campuses no long provide or sell bottled water in Canada. The Canadian Federation of Students, the Polaris Institute, and the Sierra Youth Coalition are sponsoring a Bottled Water Free Day on March 11, 2010. You don't have to be Canadian to pledge to give up bottled water.

    Their website provides many facts that you might want to check out, like this one:

    "For soft drink giants PepsiCo and Coca-Cola, revenues from bottled water per unit outstrip soft drinks."
