Ask Your Governor to Think Outside the Bottle



When: Thursday, February 12 at 11:30 AM

Where: Union Square New York, NY 10003


In less than a month, thousands have signed onto letters urging their governors to cut state bottled water contracts and reinvest in public water systems. Now we’re ready to present the letter and its signatures to your governor.

Now will you join us at an event that takes the next step in the campaign?

In all 50 states this week, thousands are asking their governors to cut bottled water spending. Official action would be seen as a gesture of confidence in public water systems; systems that now stand to get an infusion of much needed dollars as part of the national economic stimulus package. Action by governors would also send the essage that in these difficult economic times, state government is intent on cutting frivolous spending and investing in shared public resources upon which local economies rely, such as water.
