Tap Water Map App from Metro Vancouver

This is a great example of using tech to help people become more environmentally sustainable in their behaviour:

Metro Vancouver has developed a free new iPhone app, Tap Map, that's now available for free at iTunes.  Tap Map helps people find the closest source of Metro Vancouver tap water. 

Thanks to the municipalities within the Metro Vancouver region we already have the locations of over 550 public drinking fountains between West Vancouver and Langley.  We're already talking to restaurant and business associations about having their members offer to refill anyone's water bottle with no obligation to buy anything.

If you think that people who read your Blog would be interested in Tap Map, and/or asking their favourite restaurants and other establishments to opt in, please tell them about it.

BTW, free apps for Androids and Blackberries will be available later this month.

For more information on Metro Vancouver's Tap Water Campaign, please check out our Tap Water pages.
