University of Ontario Officially Bans the Bottle!
Students, staff and faculty at the University of Ottawa will no longer be able to buy a bottle of water to quench their thirst.
Starting today, the university has stopped the sale of bottled water on campus.
The university is encouraging members of its community to find other ways to quench their thirst for water, including filling up glasses and re-usable bottles at the nearest fountain or tap on campus.
The University of Ottawa has invested over $100-thousand to revitalize its water fountains, and will spend an additional $75-thousand next year.
The U of O is the first campus in Ontario to ban the sale of bottled-water.
Way to go U of O!
