Water Bottle Refill Stations

Look for one of our 37 Water Bottle Refill Stations around campus to stay hydrated and help us reduce the need for single-use plastics.

Goodman Gym Water Refill Station

Water bottle refill stations significantly help to reduce the number of single-use plastic water bottles on our campus. Since the first installation of our refill stations, we have prevented over 420,000 plastic water bottles from entering our landfills (as of September 2023)!

Here are some things you can do to help us continue our efforts in reducing single-use plastics on our beautiful campus:

  • Invest in a reusable bottle. If you don't already own a reusable bottle, you can find some for sale in our campus bookstore or at many other retailers. 
  • Invest in a water filter. There are many options when it comes to water filters. You can find them in all shapes and sizes online, making it easier for you to fit a filtered pitcher into your mini fridge. Although your tap water is safe to drink, many people enjoy having a filter system for their water, plus it allows you to keep the water cold. 
  • Spread the word! Be a plastics reduction champion and encourage your friends and peers to use their reusable bottles and ditch the plastic. Simple actions really do make a difference, and with your help, we can make Catawba the best it can be!
