In case you missed it, Take Back The Tap has launched a campaign against the sale of plastic water bottles on campus (read about it here). A lot of students on campus already know that reusable water bottles are the way to go, since they are sustainable for both your budget and our environment, not to mention the fact that they look infinitely cooler.

“My water bottle was sent to me in a care package from my best friend. Every time I take a sip from this water bottle, I remember some of our favorite adventures – kayaking to the Mokulua Islands, cliff jumping into the ocean, exploring coves, hour-long drives to Yokohama Bay, and making s’mores on the beach under the full moon.”
Kinnera Maturi || Cognitive Science Major and Math Minor || Sophomore
Brandon Butler || Bioengineering Major || Senior
Patrick Mueller || Psychology Major || Junior
“Each year of college I buy a new one and fill them with stickers from places I visited that year. They have become sort of memory bottles at this point.”
Eric Medina || Environmental Studies and Politics Major || Freshman
Maddy Starr || Film and Digital Media Major || Sophomore

“Plastic water bottles are not just an environmental issue, but also a social justice issue because water is being taken away from people that need it. Water should be accessible and affordable for everyone.”
