Help Reduce Bottled Water Waste!

Americans send about 38 billion water bottles a year to landfills.1 Considering the 1.5 million barrels of oil needed to make those bottles, the environmental impact of plastic bottle waste is truly staggering.2

That's why we created Ban the Bottle. We advocate a simple commitment to reduce your personal waste by giving up bottled water, even if it's just a few days each week. Together, filtered water and a reusable bottle are an ideal solution for going green at home and on the go. It's an easy change that can make a big difference.
