Ban the Bottle SFU

What is Ban the Bottle SFU?

Ban the Bottle SFU is a student-led initiative that aims to ban the sale of bottled water at SFU and help the university maintain its position as a sustainability leader. The organization successfully sought the support of the Pacific Water Research Centre, and has quickly gained the attention of many faculty members, staff and students across SFU. 

Ban the Bottle SFU has hosted multiple events since the Fall of 2018, hoping to educate the community on the harmful effects of these single use plastics. Most recently, Ban the Bottle and the Pacific Water Research Centre co-hosted a World Water Day 2019 screening and panel to help raise awareness and support surrounding their cause. These students work with the SFU Sustainability Office, SFU Ancillary Services and the SFSS to support the phase out of water bottles.
