Ban the Bottle, Take Back the Tap

This project led to the installation bottle refilling stations on campus that reduce waste from plastic bottles, decrease energy usage, preserve our environment, and enable our community to drink filtered water.

The project was made possible by a grant from the FIT Sustainability Council.
