Water-filling Stations Dry Up Plastic-Bottle Use
By Lauren Brown

Refill ’er up! That’s the concept behind Terps Heart the Tap, a project run by the Office of Sustainability to reduce bottled-water consumption at the University of Maryland.

Since 2013, 101 filtered water-filling stations have been installed in buildings across campus, with another 85 coming this fall.

Making it easy for thirsty Terps to refresh for free, anytime, has prevented more than 4.7 million plastic single-use bottles from being used and sent to landfills.

We’ll drink to that.
