Bring Your Own Bottle

Sip smart, quench your thirst, skip the plastic waste! Join the GMOCO Picnic - BYOB - Bring Your Own Bottle, and hydrate sustainably, one refill at a time!

As part of one of the goals of the President’s Charter, we are on a mission to reduce plastic waste and make recycling a common practice at GMOCO events. The Bring Your Own Bottle initiative during Picnic 2023 encourages attendees to bring their own water bottles and utilize our convenient refill stations, reducing plastic bottle waste and promoting environmental sustainability. Together, let's make a positive impact on the environment.
