Update: The Newest Colleges and Universities to Ban the Bottle
Colleges and Universities have been known to consume more plastic bottles annually than most other organizations. Many students and staff dislike this statistic and are taking the stand to bring an end to the sale of bottled water within their campuses. Many efforts have been taken by various schools around the country including the establishment of campus-wide campaigns promoting sustainability including Take Back the Tap at University of Nevada Las Vegas and Tap That at Vassar College.
As more and more Colleges and Universities take the steps towards Banning the Bottle, we want to recap and congratulate the schools that have already or are currently working towards Banning the Bottle from their campuses.
Take a look at this map which includes a list of the most recent schools that have started a campaign towards Banning the Bottle and those schools who have successfully accomplished the campus-wide bottle ban.
