Soda Free Sundays
Soda Free Sundays was a community-wide challenge to take a break from sugary drinks that launched in April 2011 in King County, WA. We picked Sunday because it is a day for gathering among families and friends who can support each other in going soda free (oh, and because it’s kind of catchy!).
In 2013-14, we are building on the success of Soda Free Sundays by working with businesses, youth-serving organizations, churches and more in cities in the South region of King County. These communities are promoting access to healthy beverage choices by making it easy to get a healthy, low-sugar drink when you and your family needs one. It’s all about making the healthy choice the easy choice.
