Belmont U. To Stop Selling Bottled Water

Published On April 22, 2009 | By Tomás Bosque | News, School

Starting May 16, bottled water will no longer be sold on the Belmont University, a school in Nashville Tennessee.

The announcement came on Monday at the beginning of Earth Week. Belmont officials said they are trying to cut down on waste and decided bottled water is not practical for people or the environment.”We’re going to drink out of water fountains, get cups of water, what we did before we had (bottles) so readily available,” said Dr. Judy Skeen of Belmont University’s Environmental Initiative.

Purifying filters will be added to any water fountains on campus that did not already have them.
