TAKE ACTION NOW to protect Bottled Water Free Day!

Cedar Springs and the Canadian Bottled Water Association are doing an industry knock-off on BWFD.

See: http://www.bottledwaterfreeday.com and their press release that went out this morning: http://www.newswire.ca/en/releases/archive/March2011/09/c9351.html

Cedar Springs did this last year and we flooded their phone lines with people calling in backing the tap. We want to do that again this year. Please promote the following action to your members tomorrow—this is also a good media hook (i.e., “there are over 120 events across the country taking place around ending the privatization of water for Bottled Water Free Day and industry is feeling the pressure. Bottled water company Cedar Springs and the Canadian Bottled Water Association are at it again with bottled water giveaways on Bottled Water Free Day 2010. Last year we shut down their phone lines—but apparently they didn’t get our message!”)

Subject: Flood Cedar Springs Lines–Call today!

Flip the TAP to the bottled water industry! Bottled water company Cedar Springs and the Canadian Bottled Water Association are at it again with bottled water giveaways on Bottled Water Free Day 2010. Last year we shut down their phone lines—but apparently they didn’t get our message! Call Cedar Springs today and tell them you back the TAP! Call: (416) 798-7675

Email Action: http://www.insidethebottle.org/send-message-cedar-springs-march-10th

Suggested script for individuals calling : “On Canada’s Second Bottled Water Free Day I am working to kick the bottle and back the tap! The knockoff website that Cedar Springs has produced to promote giving away free bottled water is a desperate effort on behalf of your organization. It is clear that your company and all bottled water companies are feeling the heat as education and action around the negative environmental, health and social impacts of bottled water is growing! I choose NOT to drink bottled water”
