“I think this is a perfect example of innovation. It’s homegrown, it mixes research with action, and it does all of that while actually contributing to making a better campus.”

Improving access to water one bottle at a time

Graduate student Celeste Digiovanni is doing her part to make an impact by creating H2Ottawa, an infinitely recyclable reusable bottle sold in vending machines at the same price as a disposable water bottle. Made of infinitely recyclable aluminum, sold in vending machines at the same price as a disposable water bottle, refillable at the many campus water fountains, and reusable, the H2Ottawa is as practical and accessible as a plastic bottle, but without the environmental, economic and social impact.
