Project Timeline: The project can start May 2017.
Project Description: Have you noticed at UIC the drinks you purchase are always in plastic bottles? Drinking out of plastic is harmful to you and the environment. On average, 67 million plastic bottles are thrown away each day. In plastic bottles, there are chemicals such as BPA that has been linked to serious health problems. We want to live a normal healthy life. My goal for the project is to get rid of all the plastic bottles on campus and replace the plastic with glass bottles. Glass can be reused and recycled. Glass can be recycled many times after its use. Glass doesn’t harm the environment or your body.
Budget: This is a low cost project. Once the glass bottles are bought, the price is determined by what the school wants to sell them for. It would be between $1-$3.
