aquafil – Perth Zoo – Water for Wildlife

Perth Zoo recently installed 2 aquafil™ filtered water refill stations giving zoo visitors easy access to clean fresh water.

In an effort to raise awareness within the community about the benefits of protecting and conserving precious water resources and habitats, Perth Zoo ran a Water for Wildlife Art Competition.  28 Schools submitted a total of 393 entries and Danika from East Kenwick Primary School was named the winner.

Danika’s artwork is now displayed on the two new aquafil™ filtered water refill stations and her class will soon be
enjoying a free education experience at Perth Zoo.

Water is essential for healthy living and is crucial for sporting, mental and academic performances. Tap water represents value for money as it’s cheaper for the community than buying bottled water or other soft drinks.

Plastic bottles create toxic waste that end up in land fill, rivers and oceans. Many schools and communities have implemented the practical solution of installing Water bottle Refill Stations to combat this waste.

The aquafil™ range of Water Bottle Refill Stations and Drinking Fountains  serve as a dynamic  educational tool in the fight to reduce plastic waste and conserve precious resources. Full colour graphics are available on most of the aquafil™ range and are  valuable in helping promote a sustainable way of living and encouraging a healthy lifestyle.

Refilling water to save environment and wallet

September 21, 2011
University of Queensland

A new water refill station has been installed at the UQ St Lucia campus to raise student and staff awareness of the option to say no to bottled water, and save money.

The water refill station is at Staff House Road, near the Commonwealth Bank.

It is an environmental engagement and awareness initiative by the Sustainability Office in UQ’s Property and Facilities (P & F) Division.

If the trial of the first station proves successful, the University’s students and staff can expect more refilling stations to arrive at UQ before Christmas.

UQ P & F Sustainability Coordinator Suzanne Davis said that most Australians were not aware that purchasing bottled water was costly to both the environment and to the wallet.

“It probably never occurs to you that when spending  to buy one standard 600ml bottled water you might as well buy 1,000 litres of tap water,” Ms Davis said.

“Every year Australians spend more than $400 million on bottled water which has a carbon footprint 300 times greater than tap water.”

Deputy Director of UQ P&F division Geoff Dennis said that bottled water was a serious environmental problem.

“After consumption, approximately 65 per cent of plastic drink bottles end up in landfill with only 35 per cent being recycled,” Mr Dennis said.

The “Choose Tap” campaign promotes the health benefits of drinking tap water as a positvie alternative to bottled water.  With Australians spending more than $500 million annually on plastic bottled water the benefits of changing to tap water are huge. Not only is it good for the environment, it also saves us money.

The aquafil™ range of Water Bottle Refill Stations and Drinking Fountains  serve as a dynamic  educational tool in the fight to reduce plastic waste and conserve precious resources. Full colour graphics are available on most of the aquafil™ range and are  valuable in helping promote a sustainable way of living and encouraging a healthy lifestyle.
