Emily Sullivan '14 at a water bottle filling station in the Hogan Campus Center.
Students at Holy Cross have even more reason to forgo the purchase of bottled water. Last summer, Physical Plant installed about 20 water bottle filling stations across campus. Bottle filling stations dispense cold, clean filtered water for free.
The proposal for the bottle filling stations was developed by Emily Sullivan ’14, an environmental studies major with an Asian studies concentration. Sullivan is the director of environmental concerns for the Student Government Association and a member of the Presidential Task Force on the Environment.
Students have been encouraged to use reusable water bottles on campus for several years. Each incoming student receives a “Purple Goes Green” water bottle during Gateways Orientation. They are also sold in the Holy Cross Bookstore, Cool Beans coffee shop, and the Science Café. As another way of promoting the water bottles, Dining Services provides free sanitization of the bottles in Kimball Main Dining Hall.
“The installation of bottle filling stations in public and private spaces on campus enhances the College’s efforts to go green, diverts plastic water bottles from entering the waste stream and encourages healthy habits,” says Sullivan.
The bottle filling stations were manufactured by Halsey Taylor. Fill up at the following locations.
