A brief description of the campaign (1st campaign):
UNLV's student organization, Take Back the Tap partnered with UNLV's Facilities Management to increase awareness of alternative drinking methods to single-use plastic bottled water and make hydration stations such as the Brita Station or the Elkay more accessible for student and the UNLV community. Through the funding from Facilities Management, Take Back the Tap was able to reach out to different departments on campus and give the opportunity for those departments to purchase a hydration station by the means of matching funding. Take Back the Tap also did various other activities to increase awareness of why hydration stations are an important alternative through tabling events, class presentations, larger social events, and putting up plagues that provide facts about plastic water bottle consumption and recycling.
A brief description of the measured positive impact(s) of the campaign (1st campaign):
Because of the high popularity of the hydration station and support from students and UNLV, hydration stations have grown from 2 hydration station in 2011 to over 50 hydration stations in 2015.
