Reusable Water Bottle Initiative

In keeping with the University of Maine’s leadership in sustainability, each student acceptance package for fall 2017 includes a reusable water bottle. Promoting the use of reusable water bottles is part of UMaine’s commitment to reducing our carbon footprint as a green campus and encouraging students to think about sustainability from the moment they are accepted to UMaine.

Decreasing use of one-time-use water bottles is part of the University of Maine’s sustainability efforts to promote environmental stewardship on its campus, with substantial efforts aimed at conserving energy, recycling, and adhering to green building standards in new construction.

UMaine’s Office of Sustainability leads ongoing education and outreach efforts to help ensure that sustainability awareness and genuine concern for the health of our environment become second nature to each and every member of the UMaine community.
