Don’t Forget That Reusable Bottle With Back To School Supplies
Perris, CA (September 12, 2023) — With students back in school for the new academic year, Eastern Municipal Water District wants to remind parents to include a reusable water bottle as part of their child’s daily school supplies.
EMWD has water bottle fill stations at nearly every school in its service area, where students may easily refill their bottles with free and safe drinking water. EMWD is proud to partner with its area school districts to provide water bottle fill stations on campus.
EMWD conducts more than 40,000 water quality tests each year as part of its commitment to deliver safe and reliable water supplies to nearly 1 million people each day. Each year, it publishes the results of those tests in its annual Consumer Confidence Report.
By bringing a reusable bottle, students can remain hydrated during the day and also help to reduce the amount of plastic waste that enters area landfills. EMWD fill stations have helped eliminate hundreds of thousands of plastic bottles from being thrown away.
Additionally, reusable bottles can help save water. It can take more than twice the amount of water to make a single-use plastic water bottle as the bottle actually holds. By using a reusable bottle, students are able to do their part to reduce their water footprint and reduce waste.
