Problem
It is our responsibility to teach our children about the impact their day-to-day choices have on the world. Too often we see students with plastic bottled water containers which, while convenient, are incredibly harmful to our ecosystem. About 70% of plastic water bottles bought in the United States are not recycled. Plastic water bottles were the third most commonly collected trash during the Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup. Plastic water bottles are made with chemicals derived from crude oil and natural gas - another hit to our precious environment. 

Solution
The goal of this petition is to collect enough signatures so that the East Brunswick Board of Education will vote to create a ban on plastic water bottles in our school grounds.  Instead, we hope to see our students rise above plastic and use a reusable water bottles or the water fountains. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Personal story
I am a mom of 2 who is committed to encouraging others to be more mindful and conscientious about their everyday choices. I would love for my children to encourage their peers to make healthier choices for our environment.
