Challenge

Improve quality or consumption of water in your community.

Overview

We believe that if everyone at our school brought a reusable water bottle filled with tap water every day, it would make a big difference. We conducted taste tests and used our data and an animated movie to educate people about this issue and to challenge them to use tap water and reusable water bottles. We also worked with the Parent Association to sell a new environmentally friendly water bottle
