Trust the Tap
This is a new initiative that is being sponsored by the Sustainability Committee. The goal of the program is to eventually eliminate the communitys’ dependence on plastic water bottles that are wasteful and environmentally unkind. For more information, please email Jackie Ganfield at email@example.com.
The Trust the Tap campaign strives to bring awareness and education to students on campus about reducing plastic waste, greenhouse gas emissions, and social justice issues focused around water privatization and the fundamental human right to clean and safe drinking water. The Trust the Tap conversation around campus is, “Why should I buy bottle water when I can get it for free from our UV water filtration coolers?” In fact, Denver’s tap water supply has been rated as one of the highest in quality in the United States. Thus, Regis University is dedicated to reducing their enormous amount of plastic waste by representing the Jesuit values of “How ought we to live?”
Fun fact: “The recommended eight glasses of water a day, at U.S. tap rates equals about $.49 per year; that same amount of bottled water is about $1,400.”-Ban the Bottle
