Woohoo!!! According to the counter on this water fountain, the MacEwan University Service Centre staff have kept 20,000 water bottles OUT of landfills since the beginning of last May. And this is just one of two fountains, though I didn’t check the.
I went to get some water and this was the number displayed when I arrived. It hit 20,001 after only a second or so of filling my water bottle.
Also, there are only about 260 people in this area using the water fountains. So 260 people have kept potentially 40,000 water bottles out of landfills in less than a year. Not bad! And you can bet not all of those 260 people are really using the fountains.
