UCC Library Green Energy: Water use

Information on UCC Library's Green Energy Campaign.


One of our objectives was to increase the use of water fountains and reduce the number of single-use plastic bottles.

In order to achieve this we had to ensure that water fountains were in working order and clean.

Follow the drops...

In the summer of 2017 the Buildings & Estates office carried out a survey of the water filling stations in the building and repaired any faulty ones.

We used attractive signage to promote the use of these revamped water stations.


Water bottles

We encourage people to bring a reusable water bottle and fill it at a water station on campus - it’s free, and just as good for you as bottled water.
Think before you buy single-use items.
