Drink Local

Adapted from Princeton University’s “Drink Local” webpage.

With more than 20 filtered water bottle-filling stations at Ramapo College, students, staff and visitors have easy access to free filtered water for their reusable water bottles and mugs.

Why Drink Local?

  • Bottled water from hundreds—or even thousands—of miles away is expensive and perpetuates our reliance on fossil fuels.
  • Laboratory testing by EWG has found all sorts of contaminants in popular brands of bottled water – disinfection byproducts, industrial chemicals, prescription drugs and even bacteria.
  • Local tap water utilities are required to test for contaminants each year and disclose the results to the public.
  • Using a refillable bottle saves both money and natural resources!

What are Bottle-Filling Stations?

  • Water bottle-filling stations provide you with filtered water from local sources.
  • Carbon-based filters are changed out regularly.
Station locations: Find the Drink Local bottle-filling station closest to you! To request a bottle-filing station in your building, please submit a work order through Facilities.
