The Nairobi City Water project encourage people to drink tap water using reusable bottles for a cleaner, healthier, and sustainable communities.
Although the Kenyan government banned single-use plastic bags, plastic waste remains a major challenge, especially in major cities. The chief contributor is the lack of clean drinking water that forces people to consume and throw away single-use plastic bottled water, since it is the only source of clean drinking water for those who can afford. Thus, the beginning of plastic soup problem is in cities like Nairobi without adequate waste management.
The Nairobi City Water project encourage people to drink tap water using reusable bottles for a cleaner, healthier, and sustainable communities. The project provides local habitants and visitors with affordable, sustainable, and attractive alternative to single-use plastic water bottles: reusable bottles, in combination with indoor -and outdoor tap water refill-stations installations.
The proceeds from sale of these products to high- and middle-income communities are used to finance clean-up and access to clean drinking water projects countrywide.
Vision: To provide every tourist and household in Nairobi with a reusable water bottle and the possibility to refill it with clean drinking tap water.
- Reusable Water Bottles: Affordable, dishwasher proof, made from BPA free PE plastic and made in Kenya.
- Refill Stations: Elegant indoor and outdoor refill stations made of RVS stainless steel that meet the highest quality and hygienic requirements are easy to install with low in maintenance, corrosion resistant and vandal proof.
The Nairobi City Water project is a collaboration between International Transformation Foundation (Kenya) and Join the pipe Foundation (Netherlands).
