Take the Pledge

Sugary drinks are everywhere. Pop, fruit punch, energy drinks, sports drinks and many other drinks have a lot of sugar. Together, we can drop the pop, drink water, offer better options, and create communities that sip less sugar. Take the Water Does Wonders pledge today! Contribute to healthier children and a healthier community.

Quench your Thirst

We have partnered with EcoSuperior to promote the free mobile Quench app. It’s designed to promote drinking municipal tap water and discourage the wasteful consumption of single-use plastic water bottles. So, download the app and Quench your thirst with tap water!
