Water works

You can save money and reduce waste with this reusable lifebottle and tapwater.org’s network of free refilling stations. With 51 million plastic bottles thrown away every day in the UK alone, now is the time to ditch those bottles and get back to the tap. Run by tapwater.org, the scheme makes tap water more accessible on the high street.  A tap water map highlights participating cafés, pubs and shops enabling you to locate free tap water refills using your mobile phone or the Internet. When you’re thirsty, simply use the map to find a refilling station nearby, pop in and top up your bottle with refreshing tap water for free.

The lifebottle is a stylish, stainless steel reusable bottle. The vacuum insulation will keep your drink cold (or hot) for up to 20 hours. Its unique and innovative cap contains a special compartment for storing taptabs (flavoured effervescent tablets) so you can add some flavour to the water (a possible way to encouraging kids to keep hydrated). www.tapwater.org.
