Quote from an e-mail I got recently:
Apologies for cross postings. We really, really, really need to get our Tap Water Pledge out far and wide. We’re looking to get thousands of signatures across Canada as a critical part of our World Water Day activities.
If you have not already signed or sent this to your lists, PLEASE DO SO ASAP.
We need to see the names of all of our London CoC folks on this pledge.
Council of Canadians
Please circulate widely…
As part of our activities to celebrate World Water Day, I’d like to invite you to sign the tap water pledge to show your support for public water.
Because water is a human right and a public resource, more and more Canadians are consciously choosing tap water over bottled water. So far, 24 municipalities have adopted policies to restrict the sale and purchase of bottled water. In addition, church groups, school boards, universities, restaurants and other institutions are choosing not to serve or sell bottled water in their facilities or at their events.
But the choice you make as an individual is important too. This World Water Day, the Council of Canadians would like to highlight the number of individuals who are rejecting bottled water by collecting signatures for our online tap water pledge. To sign the pledge visit: Link
You can also show your support for public tap water by joining our tap water supporters’ gallery by sending a photo of yourself drinking a glass of water (or showing support for public water in other creative ways) to firstname.lastname@example.org
Set up a photo booth on World Water Day, March 22 and get members of your community to pose with a glass of public water. We will post the photos on our website shortly after World Water Day as part of our ongoing campaign to promote public water.
This World Water Day, help us send a message to governments and the bottled water industry that people in Canada support public water!
