Our Only World Water refill locations cornwall

Summer updates: New Aqua Taps and more!

Posted on 13th Jul 2022 | Georgia Drew

We’ve had a very busy summer already. Our Only World is really taking off, and our mission to restoring ocean health is in full swing. Here’s a sneak peek at our progress:

  • We’ve launched 6 Aqua taps in Cornwall
  • We’ve finished our song, Our Only World
  • We’ve released our children’s book, Yikesy meets Gaia
  • The first two SeAlive Tile locations are revealed

Our new Aqua Taps are here!

You’ll see from our map that we’ve been hard at work plumbing in 6 new water refill stations around Cornwall. You can find our dolphin-designed water refill stations in: Padstow, Wadebridge, Newquay, Mevagissey, Porthtowan Beach near St Agnes and Carne Cove National Trust carpark.

Please come and use the taps to refill your water bottles! They are designed to limit the need to buy plastic water bottles when you’re out and about. Remember to bring your reusable bottle with you to do your bit for the planet.

Falmouth will have its first tap installed next week, and Newquay will have another in the Killacourt shopping destination. In August, Humphry Davy School in Penzance will also have a new tap, ready for the children’s return from summer holidays!


Our Only World – new song

Our brilliant song that kicked off the charity is out now! It was written by the talented Nashville-based composer, David Smart. We really hope it makes you feel just as inspired to help save the planet as we do. Head here to watch the music video shot in Guernsey.

Please share it with your friends and family to help us spread awareness.

Yikesy meets Gaia is an adventure story written by children for children. Beth Boon has worked with a local school to come up with the adventure tale of Yikesy meets Gaia. It’s a story of an alien who follows a trail of plastic space junk to earth where she finds more plastic than she’s ever seen. Join Yikesy and friends on their journey to help rid the beaches of plastic and save Earth!

SeAlive Tiles: Locations agreed

SeAlive tile 1 300x197 - Summer updates: New Aqua Taps and more!

SeAlive Tiles made by Arc Marine

Our SeAlive Tiles are going to be added to both Falmouth and Plymouth. We are very excited to get attaching them to the local harbours and piers to help the restore the ecosystems. You will be able to see our SeAlive Tiles manufactured by South West-based Arc Marine. Some of the prototype designs are shown on the right.

We are also installing Living Sea Wall tiles in Plymouth. These are the same idea as our tiles, but created by a company in Australia who were finalists in the Earthshot program!

We will be announcing our next location very soon, so come back for more updates.
