New Filter in Duffy!

11.09.2011 · Posted in Uncategorized

As an initiative to become more a environmentally sustainable campus, Stonehill has installed a filter in the main hallway of the Duffy Academic Center. It is a great alternative to bottled water and most certainly 100% cheaper. With just an empty water bottle, you can have satisfyingly cold  water at no expense and taking the first step in living sustainably. During the course of a month, if you filled your bottle up with filtered water instead of purchasing a plastic water bottle, you would save roughly $25. That could add up during the course of the semester, so you’ll have more money remaining for candy and delicious pastries from the dining hall.

 

 

 

Fun facts:  “2,480,000 tons of plastic bottles and jars were thrown away in just one year. Ten percent of the plastic produced every year worldwide winds up in the ocean. 70% of which finds its way to the ocean floor, where it will likely never degrade.”
