FOLK FESTIVAL KICKS THE BOTTLED WATER HABIT

Self-serve water stations dispense free filtered water at 33rd annual event

Hydrating thousands of people at a hot summer event doesn’t require a mountain of throw-away plastic water bottles. Recognizing the need for a more sustainable option, the Vancouver Folk Festival will provide self-serve water dispensing stations for free and easy access to fresh drinking water at this year’s event on July 16-18 at Jericho Park.

The Festival has invited the help of watermatters®, a Vancouver-based company that hooks up to the city water supply for dispensing free filtered water at public events. Mary Johnston, watermatters CEO, says “water bottled in plastic is clearly passé.
Public awareness is changing fast and people are responding eagerly to the self-serve dispensing stations”.
