The University of Nevada, Reno’s (UNR) Water Bottle Ban Initiative


unrThe University of Nevada, Reno began their fall semester with a bang at their Taste of Reno event. The event welcomed new and returning students for the fall semester, with over 80 vendors from around the Reno/Sparks community including our Haws® promoting the Brita®Hydration Station®!

Recently, The Associated Students of Nevada (ASUN) President, Caden Fabbi,  announced his concern that the University had not adopted an important sustainability trends like other Universities. The new trend taking place at most Universities and Colleges is the elimination of single-use plastic water bottles. The banning of plastic water bottles not only helps the environment but can help provide students with alternatives for a source of water.

One such great alternative  is none other than our Brita®Hydration Station®! The Brita®Hydration Station® is a great water bottle filler for students on the go. The Brita®Hydration Station® helps with sustainability issues because it encourages reusable bottle usage and promotes a healthier environment and hydration option by offering advanced Brita® filtration.

Below are photographs of UNR students raving over the reusable water bottles and information about the Brita®Hydration Station®.
