Bottled water: resources for campus visitors

submitted by

It’s almost Feb. 1! Are you ready for the next phase of our bottled water policy?

If you regularly provide campus visitors with bottled water, consider using/adapting the following language to alert visitors of this change before they come to campus:
Augsburg University is phasing out bottled water on campus in order to reduce waste and greenhouse gas emissions and support the provision of water as a human right and not a commodity. While on campus, you will have access to clean Minneapolis tap water. If you are not able to bring your own water bottle to campus, please let us know if we can provide you with a glass/cup to use and return or with a reusable water bottle to use and keep. We appreciate your support as we #LoveLocalWater together!

The student Environmental Action Committee may have funds to support your efforts!
