Improving UA, One Water-Filling Station at a Time

As chair of the UA Students for Sustainability committee on water, BME junior Paul Elias spreads the word about water scarcity while seeking new conservation methods to make a difference on campus and elsewhere.

The group's latest initiative, "‚ÄčReduce and Reuse: One Water Bottle Refill Station at a Time" (PDF), just received an annual grant from the UA Green Fund. With help from the College of Science, they will install three new refill stations on campus, to directly and measurably decrease the consumption of plastic water bottles.
