BYOB: Bring your own bottle

Bring your own bottle and save

Tap water is one of the best choices you can make for your health and your wallet. And bringing your own bottle rather than a single-use bottle is the best choice you can make for the environment.

Saving the environment one bottle at a time

About 370 million single-use plastic water bottles make their way to landfill each year around Australia.

We’re pretty good recyclers in South Australia, but with only 65.8 per cent of PET bottles sold last year being returned for recycling, there’s still a huge number of plastic bottles making their way to landfill or the natural environment. Single-use plastic bottles also impact the environment when they are made, with each one-litre bottle taking up to 250ml of crude oil and three litres of water to manufacture. Single-use plastic bottles then continue their impact on the environment long after the drink they held has been consumed, taking up to 1,000 years to break down.

Find a drinking fountain with our BYOB app

You can search for nearby drinking fountains and bottle filling stations with our BYOB app. Whether you need a quick drink, to fill your bottle, or quench your dog’s thirst, the interactive map will give you clear directions to get the closest of 1,000 mapped drinking fountains. You can also add more, and give a star rating so everyone can see the highly rated fountains. This helps us contact councils when a rating is low and let them know their fountain may need some attention.
