Whereas Bottled Water has an enormous and unnecessary toll on our environment;
Whereas we recognize water as a human right and strongly oppose the bottled water industry's commodification of this public resource;
Whereas bottled water companies work to undermine the public trust in tap water;
Whereas the production, transportation, and disposal of bottled water requires massive amounts of fossil fuels creating unnecessary levels of greenhouse gas emissions;
Therefore we the undersigned call on BRANDEIS UNIVERSITY to eliminate the sale and distribution of bottled water.
