If you are a student living in the dorms at AUIS then one of the main activities you do is ordering drinking water!
Just to let you know by doing that you are creating 4 KG of plastic waste each semester! And remember there are at least 449 dorm residents that are doing the same, which means us dorm residents are creating 1800 KG of plastic waste each semester.
I am ordering water for most of the students living at the dorms from a local company, every 25 bottles(1.5 liters) will produce 1.5 KG plastic waste and on average each student is ordering 102 bottles each semester!
AUIS students, don't you think there should be a solution to this problem?
Please upvote(like) to help us solve this issue. Solution: Provide filters at the dorm so students can find drinkable water for free and without creating any plastic waste. Some interesting facts: -Plastics can take anywhere from 20 to 500 years to decompose, depending on the material and structure. -Over 1 million marine animals (including mammals, fish, sharks, turtles, and birds) are killed each year due to plastic debris in the ocean (UNESCO Facts & Figures on Marine Pollution) -Disposal of plastic generates greenhouse gases and hazardous waste
