Reduce, Reuse, Refill!
Did you know that disposable plastic bottles comprise an estimated 20% of Big Bend's waste stream and 30% of the park's recyclables?
Big Bend National Park's staff, partners and stakeholders have made a commitment to take a leadership role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and educating the public about what they can do to reduce their impacts on the park - in order to reduce plastics in the park's waste stream, litter along trails and walkways and green house gas emissions. Even though Individual, single-serve water bottles are available for sale throughout the park, we encourage everyone to reduce, reuse, refill!
Filling Stations are Readily Available
Forgot Your Water Bottle?
A variety of reusable, souvenir water bottles are available at all of Big Bend's camper stores, and cooperating association bookstores.
