A True2o solution

True2o, a True Solution

True2o is a startup that aimed to solve growing issues of plastic waste cluttering our beautiful world. For now, True2o is on hold to create new strategies, but this is why I believe True2o would solve waste issues at GW or anywhere else.  In practice, True2o works like buying a water bottle at any store (as one does frequently or on occasion)-- but with True2o, after the bottle is empty, it can be returned for cleaning and reuse.  Instead of tons of plastic being dumped in landfills or polluting the ocean, these bottles can be used over and over without users having to clean them or refill them.  Though True2o wasn't able to stay up and running after their first release, I believe the True2o model would benefit all college campuses and contribute greatly to green initiatives.
