Refreshing and Environmentally Friendly

Student Bella Schmidt uses one of the five new water bottle filling stations recently installed at the Mathy Center. Physical plant, in partnership with the Viterbo Environmental Sustainability Committee, is participating in MPower Champions, “a one-year, fully customizable program for businesses and organizations in the 7 Rivers Region that want to reduce their environmental impact while reducing costs and creating a healthier and more engaging workplace and community.” Additional initiatives at Viterbo include replacing lights around campus with 1,500 new LED lamps and, as of April 1, Viterbo’s refuse hauler will begin accepting plastics 1 through 7 for recycling. Student Government Association helped fund the bottle filling stations.
