BYOB to hydration stations for FREE water!

by heatherhollingworth

BYOB to any number of “hydration stations” located on Okanagan College campuses and fill your bottle with FREE, filtered AND chilled water!

 Hydration stations have already been installed on the Penticton, Vernon and Salmon Arm campuses and by the end of summer the Kelowna campus will have added a few more stations to the ones already located in the Centre for Learning (CFL Building) – one of them is conveniently located in the atrium.

 Of special note, be sure to check out the hydration station in Penticton’s Centre of Excellence. It’s flush-mounted and sooooo art-gallery-sleek it requires signage!!

 Now the choice to NOT purchase bottled water is easier for everyone and some hydration stations are even combined with traditional water fountains for even more convenience. Not only is the water filtered and chilled but it’s free. We mentioned it’s free, right?

 So if you’re not spending money on beverages in plastic (ick) disposable bottles ….. what will you do with the money you save?

 The installation of hydration stations is another great move in OC’s effort toward sustainability. Wonder what will be next …. composting?!?

    Several students told me they were so happy to see these on other campuses too. Now it’s a mid class tradition to go tot eh water station during a break! Replacing the water cooler, I guess. Pretty cool!
