Sign the Petition to Reduce Bottled Water Use

 The Ottawa Water Study Action Group (OWSAG) is a small group of mostly retired people which has been working to reduce the use of bottled water in Ottawa municipal buildings, facilities and schools for the past seven years. 

We recognize that there are times when water in transportable bottles is needed, for example, in times of emergency if municipal safe tap water is unavailable or in areas where safe water is unavailable. We advocate the use of containers that can be refilled and reused whenever possible.
