DID YOU KNOW
UofL’s Sustainability Council and the Louisville Water Company are collaborating to educate students, faculty and staff on the value of getting #backtothetap with events, guest lectures, and informative signs above water filling station around campus. For example, consuming the recommended eight glasses of water a day from the tap costs around 50 cents a year, compared to $1,500 for buying bottled water.
