Bottled Water Reduction Efforts: in particular, pick up on efforts during the fall of 2015 to reduce bottled water sales on campus. Promote hydration stations, propose new locations for hydration stations (for example, in athletic facilities where large amounts of bottled water are used). Promote reusable water containers.
The goal is to ban the distribution and selling of disposable water bottles on campus. This original goal was modeled after the Ban the Bottle campaign going on internationally in high schools and universities. The focus of this goal changed when it did not appear to be economically feasible for Chartwells to do right now. The ultimate goal is to raise awareness of how disposable water bottles are a waste of resources.
I intend to survey people around campus and attempt to identify prime locations throughout the school where hydration stations would be benifical in reducing plastic bottle waste. In addition to that i am going to try and promote the use of nalgine bottles. I was thinking since the school usually gives out some free stuff to the incoming freshman a nalgine bottle would be cool. Also maybe some type of give way to the current students could get them popular. I will be in contact with Emma Drongowski of WCSA regarding this project because i believe she will be able to help me move this along.
