Banning the Bottle

Just yesterday, Multnomah County passed a resolution to ban the use of county funds on bottled water. Multnomah County is joining a movement of cities, municipalities, schools, businesses, restaurants, and individuals who are taking a pledge to stop spending money on and consuming bottled water. In an effort to bolster these initiatives, Food & Water Watch is co-hosting a screening of Blue Gold, an excellent film about world water wars.Sign up today to attend the free screening of Blue Goldthis Sunday at 6pm at the Bagdad Theatre!

Bring your friends and family to enjoy beverages and food from McMenamin’s theatre pub and to get involved with the local Take Back the Tap movement! We hope you will join us to celebrate the passage of the county resolution by attending the free Blue Gold screening.

    Yes, to great Portland beers on tap. Which begs the question. At what point will Portland Brewmasters be forced to use blended Willamette and Columbia River water?

    Yes, let’s work to band plastic water bottles…
