Sustainability at Muhlenberg College
Just Tap It!
Just Tap It is an initiative to reduce the amount of bottled water consumed on campus developed by students with the assistance of the Muhlenberg College Greening Committee. As a result of these efforts, water bottle purchases on campus dropped by 92%.
Water bottles are excluded from the student meal plan although they can still be purchased for cash or flex dollars in select locations. Look for the recently-installed filtered water stations all over campus. In support of this initiative, President Helm, in conjunction with other departments funded the purchase of reusable aluminum water bottles for the freshman class.
Where can you conveniently fill your water bottle?
- Water fountains with easy fill spouts that accommodate large water bottles and provide fresh, filtered water currently can be found in the dorms, Seegers, the Life Sports Center and in every academic building on campus.
- At your residence (use a faucet or pitcher filter)
