TapIt is a network of café’s, eateries and shops that let you fill your reusable bottle with great tasting tap water. You can find these locations by using TapIt’s website.
Why WSSC supports TapIt
TapIt was created to provide customers an easily accessible alternative to bottled drinks. Plastic bottles create overflowing landfills, require expensive recycling programs, and are a major source of pollution. And on top of that, we are proud of the water we produce – it is clean and crisp!
WSSC’s water doesn't just taste great:
It’s Healthy: WSSC water helps you maintain a healthy weight because water contains zero calories, zero sugar, and zero fat. A typical 12-ounce can of soda contains about 150 calories and the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar. Sports drinks, which are marketed as healthy alternatives, have as many calories as sugary beverages and usually contain high levels of sodium.
It’s Affordable: WSSC water is a great deal. At approximately one penny per gallon, it is about 1,000 times less expensive than bottled water.
It’s Green: Plastic water bottles produced for the U.S. use 1.5 million barrels of oil a year—enough to power 250,000 homes or 100,000 cars all year. And it takes more than 3 liters of water to produce each bottled liter of water.
It’s Convenient: WSSC tap water is available right from your tap. And TapIt locations will make tap water easy to get in public places around the region.
