Introducing SJC’s First Water Bottle Filling Station!

water 11

There is a new addition to the Alfond Center! The SJC Eco-Reps earned one of two grants available through the Portland Water District to install a water bottle filling station. It was installed right before we came back from break and has already been put to good use by the campus community. This new filling station has the same look as the original water fountain but with the addition of a motion-activated faucet to more easily fill up a reusable water bottle. This device also includes a counter that records how many one-time use plastic bottles are saved in the process. The Eco-Reps are working to raise money for more station installations around campus. What do you think of our new water bottle filler? Share your thoughts with us in a comment below.
