water bottle refill

This combines Facebook, your willingness to support causes and lighthearted competition. Nevertheless, it strikes us as a pretty tolerable–solid, even–endeavor. Haas School of Business students Aaron Schwartz and Nicole Ballin have created an app through which UC Berkeley students track their water bottle conservation habits, pitting their stats against one another in a competitive setting. We’d hate to see the mini-suite where this competition gets out of hand …

It is called Refill Revolution. This is the app. This is the website. It aims to help fix the environment.

It currently has nearly 400 active users and has received five out of five stars, based on one review. Each time you refill a water bottle instead of buying a new one, you record that information and the app will stat you up in terms of bottles saved, money saved and–hey, raffle tickets! We’re guessing this operates on the “honesty system.”

So far, two fraternities have formally competed using the application. The creators hope to open up the group to UCLA or Stanford students sometime soon and start fostering intercollegiate competition. That’s when we go nuts.

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
