Water Bottle Filling Stations
Bottling and shipping water is the least energy efficient method ever used to supply water and only 30% of plastic bottles are recycled. BGSU recognizes the importance of finding a way to reduce the enormous carbon footprint that comes from drinking bottled water.
Water bottle filling stations provide ideal locations to fill up re-usable water bottles, decreasing the amount of bottled water purchased on campus.
Note: Filling Stations are symbolized as orange water drops in the map.
