If you walk on the seafront path of Agios Tychonas, behind the Four Seasons Hotel, look out for a new feature: a Water Refill Station dispensing free, filtered drinking water. A touch-free sensor on the side activates the water flow so you can fill up your own bottle.
The water station contains three water filters: 1) carbon block 2) UV and 3) sediment filter that will be replaced as needed, thanks to the support of the Karma Water Filters. Regular cleaning of the station is sponsored by Makdonas cleaning company. “Refill Cyprus” reusable bottles are supplied by LMCG’s partner Ekonest and were gifted to participants in the launch.
A similar water station is already installed on Yermasoyia seafront. Other municipalities that have signed up to join Refill Cyprus are Ipsonas, Aglanzia and Paralimni — and more are coming soon. LMCG are actively looking for additional sponsors to help fund more water stations. Graphic panels on the stations advertise the sponsors’ support.
Please help us tackle plastic pollution by:
- Donating to the #RefillCyprus project here on our website or via our crowdfunding campaign;
- Use less plastic by discontinuing the use of bottled water. Some great alternatives can be found on the Eco Shop section of our website;
- Spreading the word about our #RefillCyprus campaign and refill station in Agios Tychonas and Yermasoyia;
- Becoming a member of our organization to help us continue our work. More info on this can be found here.
We encourage you all to reduce, reuse, and refill from here on out.
