Is this the beginning of the end of buying bottled water?

Hundreds of colleges across the nation are installing eco-freindly water fountains known as hydration stations so students can refill water bottles instead of buying new ones.

They are getting good reviews too. One Pennsylvania college student on a campus with 20 filling stations, said:

"They're so much easier than tipping bottles under the old water fountains. You can fill them all the way to the top."

Hydration stations are popping up in more places than just colleges. They are featured at airports, parks, office buildings, stores, and even on the Black Eyed Peas tour!

The International Bottled Water Association believes bottled water has a strong following and doesn't see these filling stations as an eventual replacement. "There is probably enough room for both," said a spokesman for the group.

Although bottled water may sometimes be be more convenient, we think hydration stations are a great innovation that will definitely continue to gain popularity.
