We ask that you stop buying bottled water and that you encourage your employees to drink tap water. Your offices spent more than $1,700 in 2012 on unnecessary bottled water when tap water is easily available and a fraction of the cost. By moving away from bottled water you will save taxpayers money and set a good example that protecting the environment is important to you. What do you think about plastic bottles floating in the ocean? Does it frustrate you to see litter everywhere? We ask that you make the switch today!
