Stop Allowing Schools to Purchase Plastic Water Bottles & insert Hydration Refill Stations
Petition Background (Preamble):
Here's why thats important:
-Plastic bottles hurt the environment
-Up to 70% of plastic bottles go to the landfill and do not get recycled
-Alot of plastic bottles end up in our streams and oceans
-Several studies have been done where plastics have been found in the digestive tracts of sea creatures
-Americans consume enough plastic bottles in one year to circle the globe 5 times
-Schools that have inserted hydration stations have saved up to 7 thousand bottles from being purchased in one month
St.Louis has been named one of the top cities in the United States with clean, good tasting tap water. By stop the selling of plastic bottles in schools and inserting hydration stations you will be benefiting the schools, the children and the community from excess waste.
I believe that if the schools supplied bottles for sale for the hydration stations that the station will eventually pay for itself.
