Bottled Water University Edition: Webinars


October 29, 2009

In the past year, Colleges and Universities across the world have begun to reevaluate their use of bottled water and many have decided to think outside the bottle and reduce or eliminate its use.  RPN updated its previous bottled water Guide to include the unique considerations of educational institutions.  This Guide provides schools with all the resources they need to eliminate bottled water and transition to municipal tap water with bottled water alternatives such as filters, fountains, bottle-less coolers and reusable containers.  The Guide also contains an extensive list of school’s that have expelled bottled water from their campuses and several policy samples.
