Dear Merrillee,
Tell restaurants in your city to Take Back the Tap!

Ask Your Favorite Restaurants to Toss Bottled Water Out
You have the power!
Community organizations and groups can (and ARE!) successfully convincing their favorite restaurants to show bottled water the door!
Are you a member of a community organization or group that would like to help Take Back the Tap?
If so, this is a great opportunity for your organization to start a Take Back the Tap campaign in your city by encouraging local restaurants to ditch bottled water!
Activists have already partnered with restaurants in Memphis, Boulder, Durango, Ann Arbor, Madison, San Francisco, Omaha, and Albuquerque to make the pledge to serve only tap water.
Ask restaurants in your city to eliminate bottled water! Tell them:
— Most tap water is just as clean and safe as bottled water.
— The idea that all bottled water is pure is a marketing myth.
— Plastic bottles can leach chemicals into the water.
— About 86% of the empty plastic water bottles in the U.S. land in the garbage instead of being recycled.
Get your organization or community group to join the movement to get rid of bottled water!

Sincerely,
Corie Lopez
