“Tap it up” aims to decrease the consumption of PET bottled water by promoting the consumption of freely available tap water. We do not aim to eliminate bottled water completely from USI, but offer students and staff an alternative, more sustainable option.

We want the USI community to adopt a more eco-friendly behavior by choosing freely available Swiss tap water instead of buying bottled water. Using tap water as a source of drinking water instead of plastic bottles will increase economical sustainability while reducing environmental impact.

Water dispensers have been installed on campus: one in the ground floor of the red building and one on the second floor of the main building.
