Through Choose Tap, Yarra Valley Water works with the community to promote tap water as the most sustainable drink.
Despite being blessed with some of the finest drinking water in the world, Australians are consuming more bottled water than ever before, creating mountains of problematic plastic waste.
Did you know?
The average Australian uses 130kg of plastic per year
- Plastic bottles are among the 10 most common rubbish items picked up on Cleanup Australia Day
- Less than 20% of plastic gets recycled, with 80% ending up as landfill or litter
- Over 90% of the cost of a bottle can be traced back to the bottle, lid or label
So next time you’re thirsty, make the sustainable choice and Choose Tap.
Here are some of the ways you can get involved with Choose Tap through Yarra Valley Water:
We all get a little thirsty when we’re active, which is why we partner with local sporting events and associations.
Permanent Hydration Stations
To help provide access to free tap water on the go, we work with local councils and community groups to install permanent hydration stations throughout our service area. Check out our map of national refill points, including Choose Tap water fountains and don’t forget to bring a re-usable bottle next time you leave the house.
