What can you do?
To help reduce the amount of waste disposable water bottles contribute to landfills each year, take the Filter For Good pledge and commit to stop drinking bottled water for a week, a month, a year or forever.
Making small changes towards a big difference. Our mission is to reduce the amount of waste disposable water bottles contribute to landfills each year.
On average, one person uses 166 disposable plastic water bottles each year. You can help reduce your bottled water usage by taking the Refill Not Landfill™ pledge. By simply taking the pledge you will help reduce the bottled water industry's burden on our environment.
To put it in perspective and to validate the pledge we've estimated that if everyone in New York City were to use a reusable water bottle for one week, for one month, or for one year it would make a significant difference in reducing waste.
One week = 24 million bottles saved
One month = 112 million bottles saved
One year = 1.328 billion bottles saved
So the good news is that there's a small change YOU can make to help reduce this unnecessary waste.
