Water Bottle Fillers/Drinking Fountains
We need to reduce the usage of single use plastic bottles etc. Many people buy these because they have no alternative. Lots of people are willing to carry re-uable bottles (and many do) but there are far too few refilling points. Having bottle fillers/water fountains located in the parks will significantly reduce the amount of single-use bottles bought and thrown away. Even for those not seeking a bottle refill, water fountains would be a useful service to many!!!
We have them at the Airport, (and many other cities have them in lots of places) so health and safety/hygiene reasons cannot be used as an excuse for not deploying more.
Why the contribution is important
This initiative could be a really important step forward to:
1. Reduce waste and hence be more environmentally friendly
2. Reduce littering as people throw away single use bottles
3. Reduce littering as less bottles being placed in/near the bins = less waste being blown around like we sometimes see.
I hope you agree.
