Think Outside the Bottle is a campaign working to promote, protect and ensure public funding for our public water systems. That means challenging corporations who undermine public confidence in tap water. It also means working with mayors, faith groups, restaurants, celebrities, campuses, and individuals to support public systems by opting for tap over bottled water.
