Kick the Bottled Water Habit—Check Out UCSF’s New Reusable Water Bottle Refilling Stations

UCSF’s New Water Bottle Refilling Stations

Do something good for the environment and your pocketbook—next time you head to campus, bring your refillable water bottle.  Thanks to a grant from the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC), UCSF has installed a water bottle filling station on campus.

One is now working at Milberry Union East near Palio’s and one is located at Mission Bay, on Gene Friend Way near 3rd Street.

We are lucky to enjoy some of the nation’s highest quality tap water – pristine snowmelt from the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir.  It is one of the purest, safest and best tasting water in the world.

Treehugger: GlobalTap Hits San Francisco With Free Water Bottle Refill Program

Getting free refills for your reusable water container can be tougher than it sounds. While it’d be nice to walk into a cafe or restaurant and ask to fill ‘er up, social decorum says you should buy something to sweeten up your request. While TapIt NYC has helped thirsty folks find free water refills, that’s one city – out of a whole nation of people we’re trying to get to switch from bottled water to reusable containers. But GlobalTap is on the task, working to get free, accessable and clean water refill stations to those carting around containers, and they’ve just hit San Francisco.
San Francisco Department of the Environment (SFE) and San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) have announced new tap water partnerships as part of the City’s efforts to promote “on the go” access to San Francisco’s great tasting Hetch Hetchy tap water while reducing waste from use of plastic bottled water.

In other words, the city is bringing drinking fountains back. London is already on it, and Paris has statuesque drinking fountains scattered throughout the city, so why shouldn’t San Francisco be right behind?
