Thanks to the actions of people like you, national parks across the country have moved to eliminate bottled water and increase access to tap water, despite the bottled water industry’s attempts to interfere with this policy. A few months ago, weeks after Trump’s Deputy Secretary of the Interior--who has ties to water bottling giant Nestlé--was confirmed, the administration rescinded the policy that outlines how parks can go bottled-water-free. But, this is not the end of this movement in national parks.
We need to push members of Congress to reinstate the water bottle free policy to save our national parks.
Now, thanks in large part to the tremendous momentum built by Changemakers to preserve our national parks, Representative Mike Quigley (IL) has introduced a bill that would reinstate our national parks’ policy for going bottled water free. The Reducing Waste in National Parks Act (HR 3768) sends a strong message to the Trump administration and the bottled water industry that we will not stand for this rampant corporate interference.
Sign this petition to send a letter to your member of Congress now. Ask them to stand up to the Trump administration and the bottled water industry by co-sponsoring this bill!
