About WeTapWater

WeTapWater is a social enterprise. Founded in 2010 by two friends who are annoyed by plastic waste. Drinking tap water is one of the easiest ways to do something for a better world. Because more tap water means less single-use water packaging, less water extraction, less production of plastic packaging, less transport, less cooling and less waste.

Our tap water is of excellent quality. Why drink water that needs to be packaged and transported? That is why we promote drinking local water through unique water taps (tap water coolers) , beautiful carafes and water bottles.
