Help us preserve the blue gold

Do you know how much drinking water is wasted because of our negligence?

58 liters of drinking water were collected from discarded bottles in Sage Hall during 3 days only. Such an amount of water could have saved many children in dry countries.

By joining a new community service activity, grade 6 and 6ème students became our water savers. Students are assigned after class duties; they tour Sage Hall and collect water bottles left in classrooms. Water is poured in a special container and the wasted amount per day is measured and shared with the students. This water will later be used for the plants and trees on campus. The empty bottle and the plastic caps are disposed in special dispensers for recycling.
