Watertown, WI — First lady Michelle Obama will be at Watertown High School on Thursday, September 12 to encourage Americans to drink more water. She will join Partnership for a Healthier America president and CEO Lawrence A. Soler to launch a new nationwide campaign.
Wisconsin-based water charity, CannedWater4Kids (CW4K) also feels that Americans should drink more water. The group recently unveiled a program that provides schools the opportunity to buy purified water in aluminum cans instead of plastic bottles. “When schools purchase our water they can feel good knowing that the aluminum can is infinitely more recyclable than plastic. This is better for the environment” said CW4K founder, Greg Stromberg. “In addition, when schools buy water from CW4K, they can feel good knowing that they are helping to make a difference in the world” added Stromberg. The charity uses 95% of all money obtained from donations and sale of its water to fund clean water projects worldwide.
