Installing Bottle Filling Stations in Newton

If students can refill re-usable water bottles, they will be less likely to buy disposable bottles of water. Disposable plastic bottles are a waste of resources. The Production and transport of plastic bottles uses millions of barrels of oil every year. According to the website Food and Water Watch, about 75% of empty plastic bottles end up in landfills rather than being recycled.
