Water Revolution

Bottled water consumption in Germany has increased more than tenfold since the 1970s. This causes a lot of plastic waste and unnecessary CO2 emissions. With the project “Wasserwende – Trinkwasser ist Klimaschutz” (Water Revolution – Drinking Water is Climate Protection), we want to reverse this madness and put drinking water in the spotlight.

Water Revolution on site

In a water-quarter, a partner network of local water suppliers and other strong partners promotes awareness for drinking water in the neighbourhood. The network demonstrates the advantages of tap water, is committed to improving access to free drinking water and thus contributes to climate protection. A project advisory board supports the successful further development of the project.
