Overview:

  Youth4Tap Windermere is an organization run by youth who envision a more sustainable future to eliminate the millions of plastic water bottles consumed annually. The organization was originally founded at Sir Winston Churchill School and has now spread to high schools across Metro Vancouver. Our goal is to raise awareness and money enough for not only new refillable water stations for our school, but our feeders schools as well, such as Renfrew and Nootka Elementary. This would certainly reduce the number of plastic water bottles being bought at school and the amount of plastic consumed on Earth as we hope to raise awareness around the community. Raising awareness includes going into different classrooms during class time doing presentations to educate students of what Youth4Tap is and Water Week which happened late November. As we earn enough funding to replace and install the new refillable water stations, we hope to get rid of the sale of bottled water at school once and for all. The students at Windermere Community Secondary School, in Vancouver, has been recognized for their excellence in teamwork and leadership, and their outstanding efforts in contributing to the community. As M.P. Don Davies, along with others, spoke about Windermere students, we hope to continue the excellence of our school and promote awareness on this important issue.  

   So please VOTE for us because not only it raises awareness at our school, the community, and elementary schools, but it benefits EVERYONE on Earth. On behalf of the community, thank you!
