Legislation Alert: Water Bottle Refill Fountains at Fire Hydrants

New legislation proposes installing water bottle refilling fountains at fire hydrants across NYC, initially five in each borough. The focus is on sustainability, reducing single-use plastic, and promoting reusable water bottles with NYC's top-quality tap water. The initiative emphasizes human rights, emergency preparedness, and community engagement, envisioning the fountains as communal hubs. Additionally, it supports public health goals by discouraging sugary drink consumption, contributing to a healthier and more sustainable city. View the press conference here.
