Water fountains installed as Borough Market phases out plastic bottles

Free drinking water fountains have been installed in Borough Market as part of its drive to become plastic bottle-free.

Three fountains were placed around the market on August 23 as part of its move to phase out all sales of single-use plastic bottles at the market over the next six months.

And plans are already in place to produce Borough Market refillable bottles made from recycled plastic that can be purchased from stalls around the market.

Borough Market’s aim is to become Britain’s biggest food shopping destination that is entirely plastic-free.

All other packaging used by the market’s 114 traders over its 51,272 sq ft site aims to be bio-degradable and compostable, helping Borough Market achieve zero waste to landfill.
