One National Park saved, 55 to go!

DeliveryPicSm.pngWe won the fight against the sale of bottled water in the Grand Canyon. Now let's tackle the 55 National Parks that have yet to promise to go bottled water free! 

Join us in our quest to rid ALL of our National Parks of bottled water. We'll deliver your signatures to all 55 National Park Directors. Share this petition widely with anyone who you know who cares about the future of our nation's remaining wild & free land.

To: Regional Directors, National Park Service

On December 14, 2011, your headquarters received a memo from National Park Director Jon Jarvis outlining the Disposable Plastic Water Bottle Recycling and Reduction Program. The memo outlined the various steps that your park would need to take in order to eventually eliminate the sale of plastic water bottles in the park, drastically reducing plastic waste pollution and littering. We urge you to take the necessary steps to become bottled water free.

I hope other bottles as well as water bottles are banned!

Bottled water is unnecessary. The bottles themselves are made out of fuel; it takes fuel to manufacture the bottles; it takes fuel to transport the bottles; it takes fuel to transport the bottles to recyclers; it takes fuel to recycle the bottles; and then it takes fuel to transport the new bottles to stores. It is much more efficient to drink tap water, which can be filtered, if necessary. Besides, carcinogens can move from the plastic into the water, so tap water is often healthier. Please make national parks a model for the rest of the country.

Thank you.

Please support banning water bottles at all national parks. It will help keep our national parks that much cleaner.

Bottled water is wrong in so many ways – not least of which, it’s crazy expensive!

Let's not have bottled water anywhere! An online petition that is mindful of natural habitats in the USA...

It is far healthier to purchase a stainless steel bottle and fill it from a public drinking water source than to have the worry of endocrine disrupting chemicals leaching into the water we drink from plastic bottles. Energy will be saved, land fill space preserved. No bottle water at the Grand Canyon NP – or in the other parks.

We saved the Grand Canyon from Coca-Cola's water bottles. Let's do the same for the other 55 National Parks!

The national park lands were set aside to preserve them for the future generations. We need to take that mission seriously, not just when it agrees with corporate decisions.
