Nalgene Water Bottle Swapout in Davis, Ca

Nalgene Water Bottle Swapout in Davis, Ca

This is a really nice step in the right direction: In an effort to reduce single-use plastic water bottle consumption in Davis, Ca, the city has teamed up with Nalgene to run a massive reusable water bottle giveaway.

It's all part of a unique initiative called the Nalgene Community Sustainability Program.

Nalgene will donate a number of reusable bottles to employees and residents in Davis -- additional bottles will be for sale and the proceeds will go directly towards the city's other sustainability programs.

It makes sense that Nalgene would pick Davis, a city that has already restricted the purchase of single-use plastic water bottles (and a city that has the best farmer's market in all of California, as far as we're concerned).

We used to be hard on Nalgene, but ever since they started phasing out their BPA-laden plastics, we've been hopping back on the bandwagon.

Do you drink out of a Nalg or did you stray after learning about BPA?
