Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Since 2012, there has been significant effort in educating the Champlain College community about the various issues with bottled water (including, but not limited to, privatization of a public resource, access and equity, waste in production and disposal, etc.) as well as adding the physical resources necessary to create an environment where access to free, safe drinking water is easy for all.
Sustain Champlain and collaborating departments recommended that as of March 8, 2014 any entities at Champlain College will no longer sell plain bottled water in campus vending machines,  or the Bookstore. Out of the 50 billion bottles of water being bought each year, 80% end up in a landfill, even though recycling programs exist.
17 million barrels of oil are used in producing bottled water each year–enough to fuel over 1 million cars for a year.
If water and soft drink bottlers had used 10% recycled materials in their plastic bottles in 2004, they would have saved the equivalent of 72 million gallons of gasoline.
In 2003, the California Department of Conservation estimated that roughly three million water bottles are trashed every day in that state.
That bottle that takes just three minutes to drink can take up to a thousand years to biodegrade. Plastic leaches toxins into the water, which have been linked to health problems such as reproductive issues and cancer. Bottlers don’t have to let consumers know if their product becomes contaminated, but sometimes they pull their products from stores (happening about 100 times between 1990 and 2007).


Water bottles have been recalled for being contaminated with mold, benzene, coliform, microbes, and even crickets. Extraction, pumping, bottling, transporting, and chilling bottled water is less energy efficient than using the existing network of reservoirs, storage tanks, and pipes that furnish tap water to most homes and buildings in the U.S. The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) completed a four year study in 1999 and found that one-third of 103 brands of bottled water studied contained some levels of contamination, including traces of arsenic and E. In April 2013, the campus community was surveyed to see if they would support removing the sale and use of regular, un-flavored bottled water on campus and this was overwhelming supported by those that responded.
Additionally, bottled water will not be available at most catered events (may have special exclusions for some catered events including some summer groups or Admissions events). At this rate, by 2013 the amount of unrecycled bottles will be enough to create a two-lane highway that stretches the state’s entire coast. The study did not conclude that bottled water quality on the whole was inferior to that of tap water, but cautioned that the regulatory framework for bottled water is inadequate to assure consumers of either purity or safety (NRDC, 1999).
At the time of the switch, the vendors were informed that we were likely to stop the sale of bottled water on campus as of January 1, 2014. The City of Burlington supplies campus with some of the best, cleanest water in the nation.8.


Tap water is more strictly regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency than bottled water is by the Food and Drug Administration.*6.
80% of plastic bottles are not recycled so they end up in our lakes, streams, oceans and landfills.*4. The 17 million barrels of oil it takes per year to make all the plastic water bottles used in the U.S. In a spring 2013 survey at Champlain, 64% of respondents supported stopping the sale of bottled water on campus.2. During blind taste tests on campus, people have preferred fountain water over bottled water.1.
