Water conservation is a priority for operations at Coastal Carolina University.

Water Bottle Refill Stations

Are you looking for an easy way to not only help protect our earth, but keep yourself healthy and save more money? Switching from bottled water to tap water is just one simple way to make these goals a reality. Think Outside the Bottle is a campaign dedicated to raising awareness about the bottled water industry, their product, and how its impacting the world. People around the country have taken the initiative to help make this campaign nationwide.

Look for one of the 42 Water Bottle Refill Stations located throughout campus and fill up your bottle, cup or mug with free filtered water!

Here are some things you can do to "Think Outside the Bottle"

  • Invest in a Water Filter: It has been proven that cold tap water tastes better than warm or room temperature water. There are many water filters on the market to choose from. Some of the most popular ones include Pur and Brita (ranging between $20 and $30). 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. There are also filters you can attach to your faucet.
  • Invest in a Reusable Bottle: Reusable bottles, cups and mugs are available everywhere and they sell for between $1 and $20. You can fill up yours at any of the Water Bottle Refill Stations across Coastal's campus. Visit our Home page for a list of locations.
  • Spread the Word: Share this change with those around you and educate as many people you can. Let them know that simple things like this really do make a difference and the more you spread the word, the bigger difference we can make.
