The Blue Team and the Student Association (SA) are committed to supporting a water-bottle-free campus. This is why first-year students are given a re-useable water bottle during their laptop pickup.

Fun facts:

  • It takes three litres of water to create one litre of bottled water.
  • Since 2000, more than 50 per cent of bottled water products have been recalled by the Canadian Food Agency.
  • An estimated 86 per cent of plastic bottles in Ontario are not recycled.
  • In 2010, only six per cent of bottled water factories were inspected for health and safety.
