Why show off your reusable water bottle?

 

  • 17 million barrels of crude oil are used every year to produce plastic, disposable water bottles.

 

  • Less than one quarter of those ever get recycled.

 

  • For the price of one store-bought bottle of water, you can fill a reusable bottle with Madison tap water 5,000 times!

 

  • Madison is lucky to to have excellent water naturally sourced from a deep, underground aquifer.

 

  • Our water is tested thousands of times a year and consistently exceeds federal and state standards for quality and safety.

 

OUR "BARE YOUR BOTTLE" PHOTO CONTEST WILL BE BACK NEXT SPRING, SO GET READY TO SHOW OFF YOUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY!
