A really good idea

One of the hardest things when travelling, for me, is finding somewhere to refill my water bottle (or maybe I'm just looking in the wrong places). When I was in Basel earlier this year, I loved the fountains around the city where you can refill your water bottle for free - and I definitely made use of them.

While at the Thames Festival today, I came across a stall for GiveMeTap. The basic idea behind it is this: you buy a reuseable bottle, then you can refill it for free at various places that have agreed to become 'water providers.' Most of the profits (70%) from sales of bottles and other items goes towards funding projects to provide water where it is more needed.

I don't know about anyone else, but I think its a great idea, and I hope it does well. For more information about GiveMeTap, you can visit their website here
