Widener University | Pennsylvania, United States | Advancing SDG 13 & UNAI 9

" I want to reduce waste on college campuses. They currently have a reputation for being wasteful relating to parties, but that can be changed with how we address filling stations of liquids. Rather than wasting liquid, which in some countries isn't clean, we can just limit the amount we use so that more is saved. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Project 19.7

This project will mitigate water waste from the automatic beverage dispensers that are used at various location by not allowing for overflow and by making spillage more difficult.
