beach rubbish 1920x550 - AQUA TAPS

Water Refill Stations

Welcome to our Aqua Tap page. You have arrived here because either you have scanned our qr code whilst refilling your bottle or you have heard  that we are installing our units, across Cornwall to help eliminate the use of single use plastic bottles. Thankyou to Cornwall Council’s Community Infrastructure Levy Fund.

We worked throughout Covid with our partners below to launch a unique design. We have  a local supply chain and the top section is made from recycled fishing nets collected off our beaches by Odyssey Innovation

M & M Plumbing

Metalwork Solutions

Redsoul Design

Revmo

SWMAS

South West Water

Currently we have installed 7 and are working hard to expand our sites.

The Aqua Tap help locals and holiday makers avoid buying unnecessary single use plastic water bottles, allowing them instead to refill their own. We know how much plastic ends up in our oceans, and so simple solutions like the Aqua Tap are long overdue.

Where to find them...

We have 6 stations across Devon and Cornwall, with many more in the pipeline. Take a look at the map to see where you can find a refill location, and where the next sites will be.

Find our Aqua Taps in:

  • Porthtowan Beach, St Agnes
  • Mevagissey
  • Newquay
  • Wadebridge
  • Padstow
  • Carne Cove National Trust Car Park

How we got here

Before I founded Our Only World, I fundraised with my local marine group to install water refill stations on our local beaches. After two years, we managed to get them in Polzeath and Rock – you may have used them yourself! This was a big success for us, but the stations were shipped over from America, adding a big carbon footprint – and price tag!

Since relaunching the water refill project with Our Only World, we have championed exclusively local designers, engineers and plumbers. We are incredibly proud to have produced the Aqua Tap in the South West. Having began the initial designs in 2018 and enduring many set backs, we have finally had the first installs of the Aqua Tap in Wadebridge in June 2022.
