Reducing water bottle waste

Leave a comment

On Februaryimg_2515 14th, the 9th floor of Riffe received a very special Valentine’s Day gift – a water bottle filling station! This energy-efficient station has a spot to fill up your water bottle and also has a traditional water fountain spout. In our efforts to be a green and sustainable lab, we wanted to reduce water bottle waste and encourage healthy hydration habits for lab members. In two days, we have already filled over 70 bottles worth of water from this station. It’s fun to see the “Helped eliminate waste from #### disposable plastic bottles” number increase every time you refill your water bottle. This wouldn’t have been possible without the incredible coordination by laboratory supervisor Jeff Jahnes. Thanks, Jeff, for helping our lab be green and stay hydrated!
