Water Bottle Refill Stations

MIT Sloan is at the forefront of sustainability among business schools and even provided every student with a water bottle to cut down on plastic bottle use. However, the school did not install water bottle refill stations anywhere in the Sloan building. The amount of water spilled and energy usage that is expended from students trying to refill their water bottles at classic water fountains could be easily fixed. Elk makes several different models of water bottle refill stations that could be retrofitted to the current water fountains.

I have seen Elkay EZH2O water fountains (which have the water bottle refill feature) on other college campuses. MIT should be in the vanguard on this!
