Have you ever been out on a hot day and couldn’t find a place to refill your water bottle? Now there’s the Tap app that will locate water for you.
More than 1 million plastic water bottles are purchased every minute worldwide and nearly 80 percent of these end up in landfills and oceans. To combat the increasingly alarming amount of single-use plastic in the waste stream, people are turning to reusable water bottles.
But sometimes it’s difficult, or awkward, to find a place to refill. The founders of the Tap app, a global smartphone app launched in late 2918, shows users where to find refill-friendly spots in their vicinity. Restaurants and cafes in 30 countries have joined the network and appear on the app’s map. Find the app at Tap.
