Tap an app to locate water bottle refills

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.

This “tap for water bottle refills” is terrific, could almost justify the purchase of something with which to tap . . .
Thank you.
