Canary Wharf installs trackable water refill stations in shopping malls
Visitors to Canary Wharf’s shopping malls will be able to top up their water bottles on the go from this month by using one of the seven new trackable water refill stations being installed.
The first has been situated in Canada Place while a second will arrive in Cabot Place by the end of this week. The remaining five stations will be installed from the beginning of September in Jubilee Place, Churchill Place and Crossrail Place.
The move is part of Canary Wharf Group’s ongoing commitment to sustainability and the latest initiative in its #BreakingThePlasticHabit campaign.
The refill stations are part of a new breed of hygienic fountains supplied by British firm MIW Water Cooler Experts, which earlier this year helped establish the London Drinking Fountain Fund as part of the #OneLess movement. MIW was also behind the drinking fountains installed in Borough Market, London Zoo, Wimbledon Tennis Club and Heathrow Airport.
Steve Greig, co-managing director at Canary Wharf Management, said, “After making Canary Wharf a clean coffee zone, tackling plastic straws, introducing a Deposit Return Scheme and set to become the world’s first plastic free commercial centre, this is a natural next step for us. We hope this helps even more people make the switch to carrying a reusable bottle.”
