Love the Springs? Help Cut the Demand for Bottled Spring Water

Choose your water bottle to revive the springs and reduce trash!

Did you know that...

  • Florida's freshwater springs are losing flow and plastic trash is clogging our landfills and even our oceans?
  • Every drop of water we use in Florida's Springs Heartland is one less drop for our springs and rivers?
  • One water-bottling plant can produce 6,000 plastic bottles per minute?
  • There's one easy thing you can do to keep our springs healthy and reduce trash?

Buy and re-use a sturdy water bottle that you can refill from the tap!

Reusable water bottles are reasonably priced and you'll quickly save the money you would have spent on water that's packaged in plastic.

Most tap water meets strict drinking water standards and is just as safe, if not safer, than bottled water.

You can buy a large water storage container at a hardware store and fill it ahead of time if you find yourself in the path of a hurricane.

If you must buy bottled water, avoid the bottles marked "spring water."

Reducing the demand for bottled water is one way we can say "Thank you" to our springs and rivers for the joy they have brought us!
