How Will You Celebrate World Water Day?

In 1992, the UN General Assembly designated March 22 as "World Water Day" to draw international attention to the critical lack of clean, safe drinking water worldwide. Choose one (or more) of these ways to get in on the action!

Take Back the Tap
Choosing tap water over bottled water is better for your health, your pocketbook, and the environment. Learn why... and then give up bottled water for the day.

Protect Your Rivers, Streams and Wetlands
Important and longstanding protections over America's waters have been under attack in recent years. Tell your representatives to pass the Clean Water Restoration Act and assert your right to clean water!

Learn Why H2O = Life
Visit the American Museum of Natural History's to see Water: H2O = Life. This fascinating exhibit looks at the history and distribution of water on our planet, and addresses the many issues surrounding its use.

Walk for Water
The Walk For Water on March 22 in New York City is inspired by the 3-6 mile journey women and children make every day in water stressed countries. Join this free event to draw attention to the world water crisis.
