Waste infographic: “The Real Price of Bottled Water”

Leave a comment

Single-use plastic bottles are creating a world of trouble all around the globe. Both the production and the disposal of them is incredibly taxing on the natural environment. UC recycles at least 90,000 single-use bottles in just a year. Reason enough, we believe, to delay no more and purchase a made-to-last water bottle! You can fill your bottle at various fountains on the UC Campus and you can wash it at the Heat and Eat areas.

To highlight this issue, and to accompany Matt Goodman’s photo exhibition during this last Eco Week, we developed this infographic.
