Twitter's Drinking Water Strategy

It occurs to us that paying to have water bottled and shipped to our office when clean drinking water flows from the tap is silly, to say the least. In fact, some might even say it’s socially, ecologically, and financially irresponsible.

  • Many people suffer without access to reliable drinking water
  • The bottled water industry creates lots of garbage and pollution
  • Bottled water costs way more than tap water

However, it’s important that folks drink water every day so we’ve devised an official Twitter, Inc water strategy. First, we stopped delivery of bottled water. Next, we’re going to buy a nifty water bottle for everyone who works at Twitter and install a filter on the tap so the water is even tastier.

When guests visit our office, we’ll offer them drinking water from our limited stock of Ethos water. Ethos works to help children around the world get clean water and raise awareness of the world water crisis.
