PSU stu-

dents are get-

ting involved with
the ever-growing cam-

paign of wasting less wa-

ter. With multiple resources

being displayed around campus for

healthier water choices, the option of

avoiding plastic bottles is becoming easier

by the day.

The Food and Water Watch is a program that has

been campaigning its way through campus. The program

has offices throughout the United States. It wants to change

the way Americans utilize water in their everyday lives. Their

mission is to ensure that everyone has access to healthier foods and

       cleaner water.

Food and Water Watch has multiple campaigns to help achieve their

mission. One campaign, Take Back the Tap, has a simple goal: to reduce

the amount of water bottles used across America. This program works spe-

cifically through campuses and universities to encourage the use of tap water

          over bottled water.

The use of tap water, as opposed to bottled, has many benefits both environ-

mentally and economically. Take Back the Tap works through students to reach

                         their local schools and make a change for this cause.

Take Back the Tap has reached over 70 colleges across America and helped

pass full or partial bans on bottled water products. These campuses use

       refillable bottles and grant easier access to tap water.

The importance of using tap water is becoming more and more

urgent as time goes on. Water bottles are wasting more resources

than they give, and ultimately end up in overflowing landfills.

   By learning to save these precious resources,

students can help make a difference in their communities.

  Become part of the change, and help

Take Back the Tap today.
