As ISB continues to make moves to be a greener school, tough decisions are made that are not always easy to swallow (pardon the pun). As of Oct 12, 2010 ISB will charge double for bottled water. This is to discourage the buying of bottled water and to encourage more to move toward using reusable bottles that are safe and better for the planet.
ISB has supported this move by installing 2 new water dispensers in the cafeteria and sports area. This dispenser provides clean, safe drinking water for FREE! ISB has also ordered 1400 safe and eco friendly reusable water bottles. These bottles are being sold now at the bookstore for 350 baht.
The hardest part is to convince people to learn the truth about bottled water and stop believing misleading advertising and media. Most of us believe bottled water taste better, is safer and healthier, and comes from pristine water flowing from an untouched mountains. This simply is NOT true and there is plenty of evidence of this on the Internet and in other places. If you look at the presentation below you will start learning the truth about bottled water.
We also invite the ISB community to join us for Movie Night on Thursday, Oct 21, 2010. We will show the movie TAPPED in the new theater at 2:20 and 3:30.
