Bottled Water Ban

Published in 2015

As you all may have heard, the BSU Student Senate unanimously voted on passing the bill that would ban the sale of bottled water on campus! This means that the sale of unflavored, plain bottled water will no longer be an option to buy on campus starting as of the Fall 2016 semester. Adding more Elkay water bottle filling stations to campus buildings is in the works. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to stop by the sustainability office to voice them.

On February 24th at 2 pm, MPR will be on campus doing a radio broadcast. This will be held in Hagg-Sauer 100.

"We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using nature’s inexhaustible sources of energy -sun, wind and tide. ... I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that."
~ Thomas Edison to Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone (1931)
