We can all benefit by kicking the can -- and what could we be drinking? Water, of course! Ultimately, discouraging the glut of soda requires reclaiming water’s supremacy as the ultimate thirst quencher. Ensuring that water is accessible, affordable, and protected against impurity is the other side of a successful healthy beverage effort.
Water in Schools, a campaign of the California Food Policy Advocates, includes policy briefs, fact sheets, FAQs, resources and case studies to help advocates improve access to free, fresh drinking water in schools. The campaign is designed to ensure implementation of new federal and state laws that require the provision of water in schools.
Take Back the Tap, a campaign of Food and Water Watch, includes guides, resources and a curriculum on how to increase safe tap water consumption.
