Our goal was to promote tap water by furthering the campaign to phase out the distribution of bottled water on the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) campus. Educating the WPI community about the undesirable characteristics of bottled water and the benefits of tap water allowed us to gain support for the transition to tap water and encourage tap-friendly upgrades as a part of the WPI Sustainability Plan. These upgrades will make drinking tap water more convenient, which we believe will decrease the demand for bottled water.
