Water Refill Stations: Help Communities Become Environmentally Aware

A water refill station can help people become more conscious about the environment. Here’s how:

  • Promote the benefits of reusable water bottles over single use plastic bottles
  • Have a win-win solution (stay hydrated and help the environment)
  • Set a trend and a good example

Those are the ways a refill station can help. Let’s discuss each one:

1. Promote the benefits of reusable water bottles

Reusable water bottles can have a huge and long-term positive impact on the environment. They go hand in hand with the use of a water refill station.

People need a strong and reliable container that they can use every day and stainless steel water bottles are a good choice.  They are durable containers that can be washed and reused every day.

In addition, reusable water bottles make it easier  to stay hydrated whilst not having to buy single use plastic bottled water.

2. Have a win-win solution (stay hydrated and help the environment)

Many Australians  are now eager to help the environment but some still don’t know how.

Water refill stations are an easy way to start making a difference.  Everyone, old and young  can start right away. Imagine the impact this will have in years to come if everybody made filling up their water bottle part of their regular day to day routine.

You feel good each time you refill your bottle. You stay hydrated and healthy whist  also reducing plastic waste.

3. Set a trend and a good example

We often observe other people before we do something. That’s especially the case when refilling water bottles.

It starts with a few people  but as time passes, more and more people follow. This results  in an accumulative effect  as more people refill their bottles, more people will adopt the same routine.

It also sets a good example for the youth who can start adopting the trend as well. At the beginning it will only be a trend but after some time, it will become the  normal thing for everyone to do.

This can result  in a long-term impact that the community will benefit from.It can also encourage other communities near and far to adopt the same practices.

Water Hydration Station: 3 Short and Long-term Benefits for People and Environment

A water hydration station can positively impact both the people and the environment. It’s a small and yet long-term investment that will yield positive results for everyone.

That’s why many communities now have a water refill station and a drinking fountain. Aside from being a growing trend, water drinking stations will continue to be a part of many cities and localities for decades to come.

Many environment-savvy Australians are also becoming aware of the short and long-term benefits of a drinking water station. A few of these are:

1. Less sugar consumption

This is important. Our bodies are not built to take in much sugar and carbohydrates. Notice that many diseases today are related to overconsumption of sugary foods and drinks (e.g. diabetes, metabolic syndromes, inflammation).

It becomes a daily habit that’s why the effects are often disastrous. This is the case especially with consuming sugary beverages.

Why do people consistently buy those sugary drinks? One reason is that there’s no reliable source of water around. Once they go into the stores, the bottled sugary drinks are prominently displayed (which is why many buy the product).

Thankfully, more and more water hydration stations are being installed in communities. Australians and even tourists can drink water instead of relying on sugary drinks.

2. Less plastic waste

Many people already drink more water even outdoors. However, some still regularly buy bottled water from the stores.

These plastic bottles are often non-biodegradable. Natural processes can’t break down those plastics so they accumulate in  landfill. They might also end up in lakes, rivers and oceans.

The solution is to have a water drinking station nearby. This way, people will just drink directly from the bubbler or fill up their refillable bottles from the refilling point.

This would result in more people using refillable bottles instead of  single use plastic bottles that ultimately end up in landfill. This will help the environment and the world as a whole.

3. Set a good example

People learn best by example. This is  the case especially with kids.

Since they are still learning and havelimited experience,  they are influenced by what they see happening around  them and adults should be leading by example.

If people around are always drinking sugary beverages, kids will likely copy that. But if people  choose water over sugary drinks, children will be learning from a good example.

People and the environment will benefit from  water drinking stations. It’s an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way to stay hydrated and maintain good health.
