Our school would greatly benefit from a water bottle filling station! PBCCS just recently certified as an Oregon Green School, through the efforts of passionate staff and a group of motivated students (The Green Team). Through their work to become certified The Green Team evaluated waste throughout the school building and classes. They discovered that there was a large amount of was from plastic water bottles. In surveying students and staff, to learn “why” there was so much plastic water bottle waste, The Green Team discovered that PBCCS does not make it easy to fill reusable water bottles – the bathroom sinks are too small, the water fountain is awkward, and not all the classrooms have sinks to refill bottles. Having a water bottle filling station would help PBCCS to reduce overall school waste, support our Green Team in creating a more sustainable and efficient school, and make drinking water easy and accessible for both students and staff!
