Bring Reusable Water Bottle, Win Prizes During #BYOBottle Campaign

Houston, August 18, 2016 —University of Houston students, faculty and staff can help reduce plastic waste and win daily prizes by participating in the Office of Sustainability's #BYOBottle social media campaign during the first week of the fall semester.

To participate in the campaign, post a photo of yourself using a reusable water bottle to Instagram or Twitter with #BYOBottle and @UHSustain any time from Aug. 22-29. Each day, participants will be eligible to win exclusive T-shirts from the Office of Sustainability.

The #BYOBottle campaign is meant to encourage people to minimize single-use plastic water bottles and opt instead for reusable water bottles. Anyone with reusable water bottles can refill them at the UH2O stations located inside many of the buildings across the UH main campus.
