About the Non-Profit Organisation

a tip: tap e.V.

We from tip: tap advocate the consumption of tap water instead of bottled water nationwide. Because if you drink tap water, you not only save time on shopping and lugging it around, but also CO2 emissions and plastic waste, and you also save money. In addition, tap water is of top quality thanks to the drinking water ordinance in Germany.

About the volunteering opportunity

Mark tap water refill stations with us

Drink tap water on the go and at a reasonable price? That's possible with Refill!
A Refill Station is a café, restaurant, doctor's office or other place with fixed opening hours. If you see the blue drop sticker in the entrance, you can have tap water filled into a container you brought with you free of charge. Great idea, isn't it? There are now 5,585 Refill Stations in Germany. Quite a lot. But still not enough, we think!

That's why we would like to draw attention to the Refill movement in a campaign week from 10-16 May 2021 and award even more stations.The more Refill Stations there are in Germany, the more visible and accessible tap water becomes and thus climate and environmental protection!

This way you can help
