What is the TAP Campaign?

TAP Campaign is an outreach initiative which aims to educate global travelers about the harmful impacts of plastic water bottles usage and encourage travelers to be prepared to clean their own drinking water.

Vision

Catalyze a self-sustaining global movement resulting it the near-elimination of travelers’ dependence on plastic water bottles.

Mission

Grounded in the ethics of responsible travel, the TAP campaign aims to educate global travelers about the harmful impacts of plastic water bottle usage and encourage travelers to be prepared to clean their own drinking water. 

Why use alternatives to disposable plastic water bottles?

The use of disposable plastic bottles while traveling is: hard on the environment, hard on the communities left with the garbage, it’s expensive, and it can often be unhealthy. No traveler wants to leave a trail of plastic water bottles behind them, but many don’t know how to avoid it.

The solution is easy:

Carry a reusable water bottle and a method to clean the water. Help avoid the waste of hundreds of millions of plastic bottles each year.
