Bottled Water Free Day

Did you know Canada..  March 10th is Bottled Water Free Day.

This is to promote the idea that bottled water is an unessential use of an essential resource.

Health Canada has acknowledged there is no evidence to support the idea that bottled water is safer than tap water. In fact, because tap water and bottled water are regulated by different legislation, tap water must be tested every day – in most municipalities every four hours – bottled water plants are only inspected once every three years.

Approximately 2.25 billion liters of bottled water is sold in Canada every year but shockingly over 25% of bottled water sold in Canada is packaged tap water.

Check out Bottled Water Free Day Website to take the pledge and find out what events are happening in you community.
