Starting from October, sustainable actions will be easier for the PoliTO community: the beginning of the new academic year will be celebrated with the installation of new indoor and outdoor drinking water points, from which it will be possible to obtain supplies tangible on the environment // download the map here: PoliTOwater (3.47 MB)
By coordinating this initiative, the Green Team accepts the challenge of reducing the plastic consumption of the Polytechnic University of Turin, where more than 500 kg are collected each week. The commitment to pursuing sustainability in terms of waste management is therefore intensified, offering all those attending the University the opportunity to choose an alternative to plastic every day. In addition to the existing fountains and the already active Smat point, 7 new water points will be ready for use for the beginning of the lessons.
But the novelty does not stop here: all the freshmen of the year 2018/2019 will be given a new water bottle*, branded PoliTO Green Team, with which to get water during the day. #MyPoliTObottle: a unique bottle, customizable, with which to express yourself and share the commitment to reducing plastic consumption!
If you are a freshman, you can take your water bottle for free on the day of October 1st, from 2 to 5 pm, during the Welcome to first year students (courtyard of the Aula Magna) or later, from 3 October and until 30 November 2018 , Monday / Wednesday / Friday morning from 8.30 to 12.00 at the desk 12 of the General Secretariat, on the ground floor in C.so Castelfidardo 39 (to withdraw the water bottles you must present your Politecnico's card).
