Add some up-and-go to your daily H20

We all know that drinking water and staying hydrated is one of the best things you can do for your body, particularly during the summer months when temperatures rise and our bodies lose more water. 

Jazz up your water this summer with fruit infusions. Simply add a mix of sliced fruits and herbs to chilled water to enhance the flavour.

And the best thing is, you get to eat the fruit after you’ve replenished your thirst (or before the jug is empty if you can’t wait that long!). 

Here are some recipes for you to try that go beyond the simple slice of lemon.

We have joined forces with Tangalooma EcoMarines to challenge school students to stop using single-use plastic water bottles and fill up their reusable bottles with tap water. The goal is to help reduce the amount of plastic litter that can end up as rubbish in our local waterways.

We love tap water because…
  • It’s better for the environment - when you use a reusable water bottle, you’re throwing away less plastic rubbish. Plastic can end up in our waterways and harm animals like turtles and birds.
  • It costs less to refill a reusable bottle with tap water than it does to buy bottled water.
  • It is good for your wellbeing - tap water is better for you than drinking fizzy drinks and it keeps you hydrated!

Students enter to design a bag tag that will help remind them to pack a reusable water bottle and fill up with tap water for school each day. Every time a school takes up the challenge, we receive hundreds of creative and colourful entries, before choosing one winner whose design is turned into a bag tag for the whole school.

Visit Tangalooma EcoMarines for more information on how you can get your school involved and pledge to use a reusable water bottle each day.
