Congress stands up to the bottled water industry

2015

We led a powerful coalition of more than 20 organizations to defeat an attempt by the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) to block our national parks from going bottled water free. This trade association (and mouthpiece for Nestlé) pays tens of thousands of dollars to lobbyists in Washington. They pushed an amendment that would make it illegal for parks to use their federal funding to implement bottled-water-free policies.

But nearly half a million people like you made sure Congress stood up for our beautiful national parks and did not pass the eco-unfriendly amendment.

You're clearing the way for more and more national parks to buck the bottle, choosing to install sustainable bottle refilling stations instead of selling wasteful plastic bottles.
