UW student offers tap water challenge

In an effort to raise awareness of the environmental impact of bottled water, University of Wisconsin-Madison junior Leah Loehndorf recently organized a mass order of more than 130 reusable and eco-friendly "Klean Kanteen" bottles to share with her "Zoology 360 - Extinction of Species" class. She has also organized a "Tap Water Challenge" that will be held from 6-9 p.m. tonight (Nov. 13) at the Memorial Union, in the first floor hallway near the Rathskeller.
