We all know that we are producing too much single use plastic, so what can we do about it? One way is to cut down on plastic bottles. A number of outlets around the country will happily fill a reusable water bottle for you- all you need to do is invest in a good reusable water bottle. These are widely available in shops and once you get into the habit of bringing them with you, you will never have to pay for a bottle of dinking water again!

There is a map on the website showing all the outlets and and Kildare County Council is now one of those outlets- the coffee dock beside the motor tax office is now signed up to this scheme. Let your friends and family know about this idea, as the more people that use it, the less plastic we need to use!
