With their decision to ban the sale of bottled water by this March, the University of Canberra will become the first Australian institution to have a bottled water-free campus. The move, first initiated by the environment action group Do Something! and supported by students and University authorities, will potentially eradicate over 140,000 single use bottles of commercially manufactured water.

The University has also planned several measures to ensure easy access of drinking water including vending machines dispensing sparkling or flavored tap water and refillable bottles, all at a nominal cost and thus, making a positive difference to the local environment.
