Bottled WaterThrough educational efforts and catering incentives, Dining Services has decreased the purchase of bottled water by 90 percent. We are continuing our efforts to reduce bottled water on campus. Look for hydration stations at all our catered events.
Reduction of BPH
We have reduced the use of cans containing BPH by half.
