Can one person make a difference?

DiNicola, Danae – October 3, 2013

Bottle-filling stations in New Dorm keep track of how much water they process, and display the amount roughly as “disposable plastic bottles eliminated”. In the first year of use (2012 to 2013), the two stations in New Dorm recorded savings of 15,000 bottles. Averaged over the 30 students that lived there, that’s about 500 bottles saved per student per year.  While we cannot reasonably claim to have actually saved that many bottles, surely we can be proud of this success. Good job! –Mr. Purington
