Each stakeholders‘ contribution is important for reducing plastics pollution. Besides local communities, public bodies and private companies, travelers, especially when massive in number, leave heavy footprints in touristic sites and cities such a Venice. One way to decrease the amount of plastic litter is to encourage them to limit the excessive consume of single-use plastics, like throw away drinking bottles, too often abandoned alongside canal banks and bridges and too easily falling into the water.
On the link below is a map of drinking water fountains in Venice which can be used to refill bottles instead of purchasing a new one. We invite all visitors to be responsible while staying in Venice, to use these fountains and support our efforts in keeping Venice and its lagoon pristine.
