On March 15, Back the Tap!

Across Canada, people are taking a stand in support of public water and against the privatization of our water resources. It is time to unite and get rid of bottled water.

We would love for you to join the Coalition for Bottled Water Free Communities (made up of the Canadian Federation of Students, the Sierra Youth Coalition, the Council of Canadians, the Canadian Union of Public Employees and the Polaris Institute) in the countdown to Canada’s third Bottled Water Free Day! On March 15 2012, campuses and communities across Canada will be mobilizing to take action to kick the bottle and back the tap! We want you to be a part of it!

We want to invite you to become a Friend of Bottled Water Free Day by committing to the following pledge: “I pledge not to drink bottled water where public water is available.”

What does endorsing Bottled Water Free Day entail?
By endorsing the day you are committing to the pledge. As an organization you will be listed as a Friend on www.bottledwaterfreeday.ca If your organization is interesting in becoming an endorser, please email elui@canadians.org
