University of Georgia offers refilling stations for reusable water bottles

Article: University of Georgia offers refilling stations for reusable water bottles

We greenies just love our reusable water bottles… with good reason: bottled water provides little benefit at a high price, and creates a ton of waste (only 20% of which gets recycled). Refilling those bottles on the go can be a challenge, though. Sure, you can use a water fountain, but they’re designed for direct drinking… so refilling a bottle can be a slow process.

The Ecology Club and Office of Sustainability at the University of Georgia have addressed this problem head on with the installation of three water bottle filling stations in the Odum School of Ecology building.
