GLOBALTAP’s primary goal, of course is to provide free clean water for all but also to reduce the amount of plastic consumption is possible thanks to many projects such as Greenway park’s Amalie’s fountain. Amalie’s Fountain is also a part of a long-term commitment to making Boston’s kids and dogs happier and healthier.

“why would anyone in San Francisco buy bottled water, which is often nowhere near as clean as what comes from our tap? “

Did you know that the Golden Gate Bridge is part of the larger U.S. National Park Service, where plastic bottles represent 1/3 to 1/2 the trash left by visitors? GLOBALTAP Stations like this help limit the use of disposable plastic water bottles in your neighborhood, tourist attractions, parks and schools.
This GLOBALTAP Station is located on the southeast side of the Golden Gate Bridge at the Golden Gate Bridge Pavilion adjacent to the Visitor Center and Gift Shop where thousands of people visit each day. 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.
Daniel Whitman, CEO of GLOBALTAP joined the opening ceremony with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, National Park Service and the donor of this filling station Lifefactory.
So next time you visit or cross Golden Gate Bridge, don’t forget to bring your reusable bottle to support San Francisco’s environmental cause.
