Five Reasons to Use Our Water Bottle Filling Stations


Stay hydrated and green this season with our water bottle filling stations! Here are five reasons to take advantage of these awesome filling stations:

Stop by our water-bottle filling stations for a quick refill before class!

1. You Can Save the Environment…
Using a refillable water bottle is better for the environment, as many disposable water bottles simply get thrown out. For instance: In 2012, only nine percent of the total plastic waste generated was recycled according to the EPA. If you already purchased a disposable water bottle, don’t worry! You can still fill it up at the station. Just remember to recycle it at one of our Student Centers recycling stations as it takes a disposable bottle 1,000 years to biodegrade in a landfill.

2. …And Money (Lots of It)
Refilling a water bottle is much cheaper than constantly buying bottled water. If you were to replace 200 bottles of water a year with free refillable water, it would amount to an annual savings of $300!

3. Convenient Locations
Don’t worry about being caught without water when you need it. We’ve got multiple water filling stations and other water fountains in the Johnson Center, SUB I and The Hub. In addition, there are many filling stations located around campus, including in the Aquatic Center and the RAC!

There are plenty of stations around campus so you can fill up wherever you are!

4. Clean Water, Healthy Body
All the water from the filling stations is throughly filtered to purify it before consumption – making for a safe and tasty drink of water!

5. Look Stylish While Saving the Planet
There are many companies that make stylish and durable water bottles, such as Klean Kanteen, Camelbak, and Nalgene. Just make sure yours is free of BPA (Bisphenol-A), a chemical linked to health concerns in animals and humans.
