Ban Single-Use Water Bottles from UNCW.

We the students, faculty and staff of UNCW petition to ban the sale of single-use bottled water on our college campus. Single use plastic water bottles are contributing to environmental degradation, have been proven to be one of the leading factors to plastic marine debris, are a corporate control of a basic human need and an economic exploitation of students, faculty and staff. Given UNCW's prominence as one of the world's leading Marine Biology programs, our proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, it is only natural for the university to take a more proactive stance towards the elimination of single use plastics. By signing below we are asking for UNCW to provide more environmentally and economically friendly means of drinking water on campus through: banning the sale of single use water bottles, increasing the sale of reusable water bottles, providing incentives to promote the use of reusable bottles, and by increasing the proliferation of water fountains with refill stations on campus. We encourage the SGA and chancellor's cabinet to re-evaluate the university's policies concerning the sale of single use water bottles on campus and implement and enforce contractual obligations with vendors and service providers that would eliminate single use plastic water bottles and single use plastic bags on the UNCW campus.

I thank God that we were able to catch up a few weeks ago. I couldn't be more proud of the man that you had become. Your life was one filled with so much promise. You had just begun to spread your wings and instead of staying here for us to see you fly, you flew right to heaven. I keep asking why?! I will never understand. I will forever cherish our friendship and I will miss our random chats and yearly birthday calls. It seemed no matter how long it was between conversations, we could always pick up where we last left off. My life is better by having you in it. Thank you for giving me 19 years of friendship, love and laughter. Until we meet again Godspeed, my friend. I love you!
