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.

Sincerely,
Concerned National Park Supporters & Visitors

One of our favorite National Parks is Shenendoah. I hope they eliminate plastic water bottles there and at every Park.

We saved the Grand Canyon from Coca-Cola's #water_bottles. Let's do the same for the other 55 National Parks! http://t.co/mWW77hl7

plastics are a peril to our planet, and we just don’t need to have bottled water in this country—we get clean water in taps, and people can and do carry re-usable bottles.

The bane of our disposable society is plastic bottles. Please encourage people to use refillable stainless type bottles for water and beverages. Plastic bottles are destroying our land base and our oceans.

The National Parks of our country can set the example – water should come from the faucet not a pollution-causing, extraneous bottle.

These containers are not natural, are harmful to habitat; destructive to the beauty of the parks, and are very expensive to clean up. These containers are not what the park should be spending money cleaning up. … ARE THEY!
