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

Coastal Carolina University has 55 water refill stations that have saved more than 1.6 million bottles of water (March 2015).


Are you looking for an easy way to not only help protect our earth, but keep yourself healthy and save money? Switching from bottled water to tap water is just one simple way to make these goals a reality. The 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.
