Plastic bottles are becoming a thing of the past at UC Santa Barbara. The Associated Students Coastal Fund recently provided the UCSB Department of Geography with just over 15 thousand dollars to install 15 hydration stations at convenient locations across campus. The purpose of this program is to help eliminate single-use plastic water bottles on the campus, as well as alleviate the ever-rising costs for students by providing them with free, clean, and safe water to keep them hydrated and healthy. Plastic bottles often end up on local beaches and in the ocean, with the potential to harm thousands of animals. Each hydration station is environmentally friendly and they are expected to be complete by winter.
