Support the Life's Sweeter with Fewer Sugary Drinks Campaign!

Yesterday, Wednesday, August 31, CSPI officially launched the “Life’s Sweeter with Fewer Sugary Drinks Challenge.”  The campaign seeks to reduce soda and sugary drink consumption to a maximum of three cans per week by 2020, a healthy target recommended by the American Heart Association.

Even before the launch, more than 110 organizations, institutions, and government agencies have signed on to the Challenge, including the American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association, American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, Cleveland Clinic, Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, National Association of County and City Health Officials, and major municipal health departments (Philadelphia, Los Angeles, King County/Seattle, Cook County, IL).

We encourage you to join the “Life’s Sweeter Challenge” and promote the campaign message.  Please visit our official Life’s Sweeter website to join the Challenge and learn more about what you can do in your local community.  You can also “like” us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and visit our website to get updates and share information about the Challenge.

We look forward to working together with you to limit sugary drinks in communities, workplaces, and homes and help fight the country’s obesity epidemic.
