BSC 2862 Campus Sustainability Proposal Outline I. Introduction Switching from a vending system that provides prefilled plastic bottles to a fountain system that allows students to fill reusable bottles. This will be accomplished with the Pepsi Spire machine. Innovation is one of the keys to change and to a better world, innovation in something as simple as vending machines can make a ripple in this great big ocean of a mess we created. Sometimes things aren’t noticeable until they are pointed out to you. I didn’t notice how often students were carrying around plastic bottles until I made a point to look for it. Plastic bottles of different shapes and sizes, different colors of liquid inside and different labels. Another thing you don’t notice until you look for it is how often a student will throw away their empty bottles in a trash can rather than a recycling bin. A. What is the product? 1. New operation of beverage vending machines on campus. - Pepsi Spire beverage fountain 2. Machine that takes cash or card. Students can select a drink from the menu then set how many ounces they’d like to fill their bottle with the drink they selected. Prior to filling their bottle, the student will pay based on the amount of ounces they chose. B. Why? 1. Reduce single use of plastic on college campus. o 80% of plastic bottles end up in incinerators or landfills (Leonard, 2011) 2. Drinks at a more affordable cost for students at beverage fountains. o Santa Fe vending machine price: $1.75 o Beverage Fountain: 10-20 cents per ounce II. I plan to introduce a new product to campus that allows students/faculty to fill their reusable bottle with their choice of beverage at a cheaper cost.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
