Tap water. Water-wise communities: including empowering citizens, increasing professional awareness of water and enabling policy makers to take water-wise action.

Countertop Pitchers

If you’re looking for convenience and economy, a countertop pitcher is a smart choice. The filters, which are available at most major stores, have a long shelf life and can be replaced in minutes. They’re great for small families — you can simply fill up the pitcher in the morning and enjoy fresh drinking water all day.

For fresh tap water taste on the go, look for these new travel bottles with built-in filters. They provide the convenience of a disposable bottle with more eco-friendly benefits, so you can take your water with you and refill it wherever you go!
