Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

Single-use water bottles are detrimental to the environment as they produce plastic waste and are often times not properly recycled. Water is a human right and an essential resource, it should not be privatized by corporations for profit. Water should be accessible/free for all but when this is not the case, communities do not have other alternatives but to purchase water. We intend to work on this issue on a local level, specifically on our campus.
