What sounded like a good idea at the time, is sparking protest at the University of Texas Friday.

This week the university announced a product called H2Orange; bottled water in the shape of the UT Tower. Proceeds will help fund scholarships, but at what cost?

Environmental activists plan a protest of H2Orange at 2:15 p.m. Friday on the West Mall. They say the plastic water bottles undermine Austin's zero waste goal and UT's sustainability policy.
