In the UK, 16 million plastic water bottles end up in landfill, rivers and oceans every single day - this is so unnecessary.
London’s tap water is world-class. It performs strongly in taste tests, has more quality tests, and it’s much better value than bottled water.
We’re committed to creating a better future for London, and our planet, by making tap water more accessible, which is why we’re working with the Mayor of London to roll out 100 new drinking water fountains across the Capital. It’s the biggest single-use plastic reduction initiative of any UK city!
We’re aiming to install two fountains a week over the next 12 months, with one in almost every London borough. Each fountain is topped with a distinctive blue water droplet and they're open all hours, so you can join the refill revolution by carrying a reusable bottle and filling it up whenever you see a fountain.
Learn about how we've built our fountains and how we'll maintain them over on our community blog.
