Back to Tap


Water is so essential to life you know it’s
the foundation of life. Water provides life and shape who we are as
people. Everyone in the world is impacted by water. Every human being should have access to clean
water. Water is something we feel that all students
should have the opportunity to have whenever they want and know that not only is it clean but also
has no impact on the environment on a negative way. The Student Environmental Alliance is leading
an innovative called Back to Tap. We are promoting easy access to water through
refillable water bottle stations, reducing the need for students to purchase plastic
water bottles. Over the summer we installed five new refillable
water stations. We’ve saved about 7,000 water bottles so
far. Students really like the convenience of the
stations and we have gotten a lot of requests for more stations throughout campus. Our ultimate goal is to get them installed
in every academic building and residence hall. We hope that one day they will be everywhere. By having a way for students to refill their
water bottles we are reducing the need to buy plastic water bottles. We’re reducing
our carbon footprint and reducing waste with every refill.
