World Water Week ’09: San Diego Style

From March 22-28, 2009, restaurants all over San Diego will charge one dollar to bring you tap water. The good news is that this dollar will provide clean and safe drinking water for a child in Africa for 40 days, which is something I think most of us can afford to do.


If you live in San Diego, check out this initiative here. If you don’t live in San Diego, there’s probably info on where this is happening in your city, here. These sites will also tell you how to get more involved in this project as a volunteer or advocate.


I often forget that water really is a precious resource and that access to it doesn’t come so easy for the rest of the world. This is a wonderful reminder of how blessed we are and how we can spread the love to others.

    So what you’re saying is that I should probably actually pay the $1 and buy the water instead of walking around with my cool Evian or Ethos water bottle that I bought weeks ago and have refilled from my fancy tap at home, right? ‘kay, I’ll do it.

    Thanks for sharing it.

    What if you live in a backwater across the pond?

    Well Phoenix is not on the list. Not surprising, I’m not sure anyone around here would pay for the tap water at a restaurant because our water is GROSS. I don’t even think hard core environmentalist would do it. So maybe I’ll just donate and drink my filtered tap water.

    Awesome, awesome. One great thing about our “crisis” now is people are getting more and more creative and good things are coming from that.

    I would happily do this water initative on a full-time basis…..
