CHICAGO HEIGHTS | Prairie State College President Terri L. Winfree and Sustainability Coordinator Allessandra Cairo announced recently the college has been awarded a new water filling station.
MagicPure is the preferred distributor in the Midwest of Elkay products. Together, they awarded and installed the Elkay's new EZH2O bottle filling station on the PSC campus. PSC was awarded the station through a contest sponsored by MagicPure, recognizing the college's sustainability efforts. The station is a $1,500 value plus installation costs. This brings the number of stations for rapid fill of filtered water on the PSC campus to six. According to Cairo, since the first station installation in January 2013, the college has eliminated 12,354 plastic bottles from the waste stream.
