Youth Study
Product Number:
TC5029

You can see them pretty much anywhere that youth are gathered--those ever-present plastic bottles of Aquafina, Dasani, Ice Mountain, Deer Park, or any of a dozen or so other brands of bottled water. Just hearing the names of the brands can almost be enough to quench your thirst.

Bottled water seems like the sensible alternative to the highly sugared and caffeinated sodas and sports drinks favored by so many kids these days. Most of us grew up hearing that we should drink eight glasses of water a day to be healthy. So it can't be anything but good for young people to choose a chilled bottle of refreshing water, right?

As it turns out, choosing to consume bottled water raises a host of questions that relate to health all right, but not just the health of the young people and adults who drink it. It's a choice that also affects the health of the environment and the health of the other inhabitants of the planet in complex and interrelated ways.

This one-session youth study looks at facts about bottled water and also facts about the global water crisis. Youth are encouraged to take action.
