PET bottles banned on Aussie university campus

PET bottles are banned from sale on the campus of Australia‘s University of Canberra (UC), according to this article spotted by Nigel in today’s Plastics News.


He was rather taken by the striking headline: “Strewth Bruce! Aussie university bans PET bottles,” which was a cunning pun on the fact that the UC is in Bruce, a suburb of Canberra.


Instead of buying their water in shiny plastic bottles, the 13,000 students and staff will be able to refill their own bottles from drinking fountains and bottle refill stations dispensing filtered water.
