Water Impact Quiz from the New York Times

This past week the New York Times released a quiz on their Interactives platform allowing users to learn about the impact of their plastic bottle usage.

Blair’s own initiative to decrease water bottle usage launched in the late spring of last year. Since then, five refilling stations have been installed and every student has been provided with a Nalgene water bottle.

The Times reveals in an easy-to-understand format what many of us have known for a long time: using disposable plastic water bottles drastically increases your impact on the environment. By drastically I mean by thousands of percent.

Take the quiz yourself here, and learn what impact you have on our planet.
