“The small Take Back the Tap team at American University has worked relentlessly to see tangible change in the blind consumption of bottled water on campus… in perfect timing with Earth Week, no bottled water will be provided at AU events from now on.” —Meagan Lyle, American University

“After raising awareness, we demonstrated what systematic change could look like on a local level by passing a resolution to ban the sale of bottled water on campus. By next year, Reed College will no longer sell bottled water. But perhaps more importantly we gained an understanding of how we can work for change beyond ourselves and enact the institutional and systemic changes necessary to bring about a just and sustainable world we truly want to live in.” —Sam Law, Reed College.
Linfield College students Collin Morris and Annika Yates are leading the fight to ban bottled water at their school. Learn more about their efforts.
