GiveMeTap

Description

GiveMeTap was founded by Edwin Broni-Mensah, after experiencing difficulties in accessing tap water when away from home. He realised that while we have some of the best water here in the UK, we’re continually made to consume it out of billions of single-use plastic bottles. Whereas in Africa, 300 million people have access to highly polluted water and have no choice but to drink it.

That’s when he realised that through a stylish reusable water bottle, he could help both people here and aboard. To achieve this, Edwin made a commitment to provide one person in Africa with access to clean water for every two GiveMeTap bottles purchased. And enable the owner of each GiveMeTap bottle to easily get free water refills from partnering shops across the UK. Furthermore, the scheme helps consumers reduce plastic waste by eliminating the need for plastic bottled water.
