Bottled Water Beverage of ChoiceThink bottled water doesn’t matter? Read this study published in the American Journal of Public Health that shows how a bottled water ban on The University of Vermont campus not only failed to achieve its goal of reducing plastic waste; it also resulted in an increased consumption of sugary beverages.
