Several organizations are making it easier for residents to choose to drink water this summer with the TapIt program.

As part of the TapIt launch in Oklahoma City, 2,500 reusable water bottles will be distributed to the community Saturday through Monday at the YMCA's 12 metro locations.

Residents do not have to be YMCA members to get a free water bottle. More than 20 local cafes, eateries and coffee shops have registered to be the first TapIt locations in Oklahoma.

“TapIt is a simple concept to get Oklahomans to drink more water while reducing reliance on bottled drinks that would otherwise end up in our landfills and streets,” said Angela Jones, YMCA director of health and wellness initiatives.

“We want to make it easier for our community to drink more water and to choose to reuse instead of adding to our landfill,” said Laura Massenat, owner and operator of Elemental Coffee Roasters, 815 N Hudson. “Carrying your own water bottle will open your eyes to how many times you grab disposables, use them once, then hit the trash.”

Additionally, all 12 YMCA locations in the Oklahoma City area will become TapIt locations and allow anyone in the community access to drinking water.
