SHC Eliminates 100,000 Plastic Bottles

Over the past couple of years SHC has grown in its commitment to environmental sustainability and world-consciousness. We see this today as the original hydration station located in the Sister Teresa Piro, DC, Student Life Center surpassed the 100,000 mark of refilled, reusable water bottles! This is an amazing milestone for the entire SHC community. Reaching such a high count shows that with careful consideration of our actions and implementation of easy solutions students, faculty and guests of our school can really make a difference. It isn’t just the fact that we filled over 100,000 water bottles, it is the fact that we have saved such a large amount of plastic from going to waste in the process. Through my involvement with the Earth Action club for the past four years, this wonderful moment serves a milestone in the history of this community acting as responsible stewards of the earth. On behalf of Mr. John Scudder ’73 and Ms. Lauren Wild ’99, moderator of Earth Action, we would like to honor Shalina Bulchandani ’17, who refilled her water bottle when the station hit the 100,000 bottle mark. She will receive an off-campus lunch pass, a complimentary lunch from the food court and a modified dress pass! I would like to thank everyone who helped make the hydration stations possible in the first place, especially the Parents Association, for without them, we would not be sharing this wonderful moment.
