How about one of these on the London Underground?
Whilst travelling on the Tokyo Metro yesterday, we discovered a water fountain. It’s a long time since I’ve seen one of these… I wouldn’t like to say there are none anywhere else but they are not objects I’m exactly falling over either. Such a shame as they are a very simple way of reducing waste and our carbon footprint as well as helping people stay well. Some countries may need to improve their water quality (ie remove pathogens from it) but if tap water is already potable, what’s stopping us?
