Demonstrating the Impact of Bottled WaterWaterbottles.jpg

April 20, 2011

Members of Queen's Development and Peace created a water bottle display at the Queen's Centre April 20 to generate awareness about the detrimental environmental impact of bottled water and the social justice aspects of water privatization. The display was part of the Development and Peace campaign to support water justice worldwide and advocate for bottled water free zones. Group members collected discarded water bottles from across campus to show how many water bottles are disposed of in just a couple of days. Principal Daniel Woolf has committed to reducing and eventually ending the sale of bottled water on the Queen's campus. For more information on Queen's Development and Peace visit the Facebook page.
