National Water Week 2014 Free Bottle Top Waterer.

Growing up, water was seen as an endless resource. We played under the sprinkler for hours, hosed down our drive ways and dual flush toilets were unheard of. I can still remember my father’s disgust at the introduction of water usage charges, that’s right, it used to be free!

This year’s theme is “Water Sources: There are more than you think”.  [Read more…]
