Stop Buying Bottled Water and BYOC Instead!

Tap water is just as healthy as bottled water and, in fact, is more strictly regulated. There is no need to waste money on buying bottled water. San Francisco has banned bottled water and it is estimated that it will save $500,000. Buying bottled water also destroys our environment. 38 billion PET bottles are not recycled annually. If everyone were to bring their own cup (BYOC) to work, government dollars would never have to be spent on bottled water or disposable paper and plastic cups. Save money and green the environment by bringing your own cup and filling up on tap water.
