Water Bottle Reduction

On average, Americans throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour and many of them end up in the landfill, or worse, your local waterway.

Make it known to your event’s attendees that single-use plastics are not allowed and that, if they do show up, they should be disposed of properly in the recycling bin.

(DISCLAIMER: As much as we want to protect the environment, we do make exceptions for overall public safety. If this means having a few water bottles in a coach boat for on-the-water dehydration concerns, this is acceptable.)

To fulfill this Best Practice do at least one of the following:

  • 100% elimination of all single-use plastic water bottles at your event.
  • 80% elimination of all single-use plastic water bottles at your event.
  • Provide reusable water bottles to all participants for free (or at cost).
  • Require participants to bring their own reusable water bottle.
