Special thanks to Lifefactory for donating this filling station at the perfect time; a week before the San Francisco Board of Supervisors set to vote on a proposal that phase-out the sale of plastic water bottles on city property. The proposal was approved within few weeks and San Francisco is on the run to achieve its goal, zero net waste and 100% sustainable by 2020.
