Project Tap That is a student campaign to educate UW students about the harmful effects of plastic bottles and promote the use of reusable bottles with tap water.

They'll be kicking off their education and outreach campaign during the Earth Day celebrations on Red Square. Stop by the UW Earth Club or UW Sustainability tables to learn about the benefits of using a reusable water bottle instead of buying bottled water, and you might have a chance to pick up a Tap That reusable water bottle of your own!

Tap That is organized by UW Earth Club and was funded by a Campus Sustainablity Fund (CSF) grant. They'll be doing weekly tabling around campus along with other events to raise awareness of the issues around single-use water bottles. You can stay up-to-date on their activities by following the Tap That at UW Facebook page

After the Red Square event on Earth Day, join Tap That for a free screening of the documentary "Tapped" in Miller Hall 301 at 5:30 p.m. The documentary explores the role of the bottled water industry and its effects on our health, climate change, pollution, and our reliance on oil.
