Public water cuts plastic by 155,000 bottles

Public drinking fountains in London are reducing plastic bottle use, and over the last year the equivalent of more than 155,000 bottles of single-use plastic bottles (500ml) have been dispensed by the free-to-use fountains.

Fifteen fountains have been installed since March 2018 by the #OneLess campaign’s Fountain Fund, with funding from the Greater London Authority (GLA) and MIW Water Cooler Experts.

As part of a wider initiative to reduce single-use plastics in the capital, the Mayor of London working with Thames Water on a £5m project to install a wider network of over 100 more fountains in locations across London.

The #OneLess campaign is led by international conservation charity the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) and is working to reduce the amount of single-use plastic water bottles in London, creating a city-wide refillable drinking culture.
