Bring your own bottle: Mobile app maps out over 800 public water fountains

Tired of buying bottled water in Hong Kong? A mobile app which maps public water sources in Hong Kong is growing in popularity.

Water for Free, a crowd-sourced online tool created by environmentalists, features over 800 water fountains and dispensers. If users discover a water fountain that is not listed, they can ask for it to be added.

Rachel Pang of Go Green Hong Kong, the group behind the app, told HKFP that the app encourages citizens to bring their own bottles and refill them, instead of buying bottled water.
