Laughter Goes a Long Way in Fighting for Fresher Water

California schools are failing to provide for kids and this group wants to do something about it.

Remember the water fountains at your school growing up? Sure, the pressure was unpredictable. Maybe there was a piece (or five pieces) of gum near the drain. But the water was always there. Today, 25% of California schools don’t meet the state and federal regulations for providing enough free, fresh water, leading kids to less healthy drinking decisions throughout the school day. The comedic activists behind It’s Not Rocket Science want to draw a few laughs on their way to motivating people to action to improve the fresh water options for kids in California schools. This video is hilarious, but the humor also makes an important point about getting active through the PTA, school wellness committees, and student groups to help schools get up to code and install water filtration stations to provide healthy, sustainable water sources for students.
