As the weather heats up, you’re more likely to be buying bottles of water to keep you cool – but you don’t have to with tapwater.org!
I’ve found this website and app that’ll tell you where to get a water bottle refilled for free.
How it works
Tapwater.org is a lovely little initiative. Both in the website and app you can enter your postcode to find a business that will refill your water bottle – and not charge you.Simple as that.
Though Tapwater.org want you to buy an aluminium bottle (it’s more friendly to the environment), you’ll still be able to fill up a plastic bottle.
A 500ml bottle of water can cost anything from 40p to well over a quid – and let’s ignore the extortionate pricing you get at railway stations!
It might not seem much but on average bottled water is 500 times more than tap water! Personally I rarely taste the difference between bottled and tap, so it just feels like a total waste of cash.
Of course, you might already be pretty savvy and buy in bulk from the supermarket and refill your bottle for a few days (you shouldn’t do it for too long as the plastics are meant to contaminate after a while).
Even then I think his app comes in handy for when you are out and about and don’t have access to a tap or water cooler.
