National Parks Being Lobbied To Do Away With Bottled Water, Install Filling Stations

National Parks Traveller, March 21, 2013, by Kurt Repanshek

"It's been more than a year since bottled water and corporate America collided at Grand Canyon National Park, and the push continues to get more national parks to phase out packaged water in favor of fresh tap water and refillable bottles."

Colleges and universities say "no" to bottled water

I'm excited to learn that 14 colleges and universities in the US have taken steps to ban bottled water use on campuses this fall.  I wonder if community colleges are following this lead, since that would really begin to impact the families and communities where the students live.  "Back to the tap" could be the mantra (and making sure the muncipal drinking water is safe and clean). I drink the water from the tap in my house.  Do you?

Introducing Bullfrog Communities


Welcome to
Bullfrog Communities

We aim to energize change, and to help local activists broaden their reach.

  • We provide powerful films and all the support materials you need to create an effective community event.

  • We will send out strategic petitions, asking you to sign and send them on to your network, using the power of this medium on behalf of the people and the earth. These will be either national in scope — asking you to join an uproar of opinion, or very local — asking you to add your voice to attain a specific victory, which may provide a watershed — changing the mindset of the people empowered in a community, of multinational corporations' assumptions as to what they can get away with, and of politicians who notice the change in the wind.

  • We will provide a forum for sharing ideas that work and news that can inform action on an issue. We ask for your discussion, suggestions, feedback, and reports of successes in your community.
Please join. Let's see what we can accomplish together.
