Morris County group aims to curb plastic waste
A group of Morris County mothers has joined together to educate people on the benefits of reusable water bottles.
The group, Back2Tap, was initially inspired after seeing their children's parks littered with water bottles.
The local mothers encouraged sports groups and park visitors to switch to reusable bottles.
The group used school fundraisers to sell over 1,500 reusable bottles to community members. The sales helped the schools raise money while offering a solution to the mountain of plastic bottles found in the parks.
Back2Tap co-founder Lydia Chambers says everyone can help reduce waste by, "using the materials that you can easily rewash and use again."
