The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Water Pipe

when we went to the amazing culinaire Werkplats last week, I commented on their tap water policy. I was so impressed with the concept I bought the bottle. 

Join the pipe is a world wide organisation. Their aim is simple. They support and encourage the use of tap water and refillable bottles in a number of ways.  

They sell bottles and support initiatives to supply water bottles abroad. They also are working on providing water sources. 

(The bottles join together as part of the symbolic aim.)

At the beach yesterday we came across a public water tap from another organisation but what a great idea. 

A giant tap by the beach. A great way to get water instead of daft single use bottles. 

It’s also noticeable that plastic single use bottles are being banned more and more widely. So I’m in favour of initiatives like this. 

I think it’s time all airports had water fountains for refilling reusable bottles too. 

Where would you like to see tap water supplied?

    in town centres – how about next to the bicycle parking (oh wait, that might mean they need to put some bicycle parking in, UK towns not so great at that, although Exeter is getting better and we do have an pump fixed in place next to some new racks in town). And water at train stations. I find it’s when I’m travelling that I find it hardest to take stuff with me.

    Oh, and at parks, because kids need water too.

    yes – parks. Cafes and restaurants are getting better at providing tap water than they used to be but lets have more outside as well.
