New Findings on Water Consumption
In addition to people joining in the movement, we are also excited that the campaign is starting to see results. Recently, Hank Cardello, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, shared an article about Drink Upand the campaign’s successful approach in bringing together various companies and entities around the goal of encouraging Americans to take a simple step to improve their health by drinking more water.
Highlights of progress include a recent report by the Natural Marketing Institute reporting from a survey of 40,000 consumers that the number of eight-ounce servings of plain water drunk per day from all sources, including bottled, tap, and filtered, was up 2.7% for the quarter ending March 31, 2014, compared with the fall quarter of 2013 when Drink Up was launched.
While it is great to begin to see these results, we know there is more work to be done. We look forward to continuing efforts to encourage Americans of all ages to drink more water.
And remember, you are what you drink, and when you drink water, you drink up!
