Water refill stations
By using and refilling a reusable drink bottle with tap or tank water, you can:
- reduce the impact on the environment
- save money, as local water only costs around three cents per litre compared to buying bottle water.
Did you know...
- It takes 250ml of oil to produce one litre of bottled water.
- Only 35% of bottles are actually recycled, even though they are recyclable.
Most empty water containers end up in landfill or waterways, and can kill or harm marine life and livestock.
- Plastic bottles in landfill or in the environment take hundreds of years to break down.
- Bottled water can cost over $3 per litre.
- Australians have spent $400 million on 250 million litres of bottled water.
