Be Smarter Drink Water collaborated with the RYSE Youth Center to create a video showcasing the public’s overuse and reliance on plastic bottles. This video promotes drinking tap water, which has more quality regulation and comes from some of the purest sources in the Bay Area. See for yourself!
Is Tap Water Safe to Drink?
Richmond and many East Bay cities receive fresh, clean water from a protected watershed in the Sierra Nevada.
Scientific studies show bottled water is not safer than tap water.
Almost half of bottled water comes directly from the tap.
25 billion plastic water bottles are landfilled or littered each year - and there is no need to use them!
