A campaign has been launched to encourage people to fill up reusable bottles with tap water. The ‘Your Water, Your Life’ campaign aims to make tap the first choice for Scotland’s water drinkers, emphasising the environmental, health and financial benefits.

Research shows that 73% of people in Scotland mostly drink tap water, however less than a third (31%) drink tap water from a reusable bottle when they are away from home. Businesses are being asked to make it easier for customers to top up refillable containers at their premises as part of the campaign.
