MUN plans to eliminate use of bottled water on campus

September 11, 2009

Earlier this month, Memorial University's interim president, Christopher Loomis, signed a document pledging to eliminate the distribution of bottled water at university-sponsored events, and eventually to have the campus become bottled water free. The Bottle Water Free pledge also signifies MUN's dedication to develop a Water Access Plan to upgrade current infrastructure in order to increase access to public drinking water, and to ensure all new campus facilities include adequate access to public drinking fountains. In March, the University of Winnipeg became the first university in Canada to discontinue the sale of bottled water on campus. MUN News
