Innovative Dopper Water Tap at NHL Stenden makes it more fun and easier to fill reusable water bottle
On 29 September NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences opened the Dopper Water Tap at its Leeuwarden location together with alderman Evert Stellingwerf (responsible for climate & energy, sustainable development and circular economy). A Water Tap was also opened in Emmen and Mathijs Rutten, director of Campus & Facility Management, immediately signed the Dopper Wave with which the university makes some sustainable and healthy promises. People still buy disposable bottles because it is easy, Dopper learned from research. Also, public water taps are hard to find. Dopper's recognisable water tap at a central location gives students and staff direct insight into their own positive impact via a digital screen. And NHL Stenden sees in a dashboard how much plastic has been saved. "This helps us raise environmental awareness, make sustainability policies concrete and create a positive impact," said Victoria Snouck Hurgronje, sustainability booster within NHL Stenden.
