First of London’s new drinking fountain locations revealed


The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has revealed the locations of the first four drinking fountains to be installed in the capital under a new pilot scheme in an effort to combat single-use plastic. The first fountain was installed last week in Carnaby Street in the West End, while in the coming weeks two will be set up in Liverpool Street station and another in Flat Iron Square in Southwark. “We want to make sure that it becomes the norm that people can not use single-use plastic bottles,” said Shirley Rodrigues, deputy mayor for environment and energy. Last year the Guardian discovered that a million plastic bottles are sold worldwide every minute, a large proportion ending up in landfill or in the oceans. The latest move is part of Khan’s plan to tackle plastic waste in the capital, with a further 16 drinking fountains set to be installed by the end of the year.
