Join the Pipe, a global community of tap water drinkers

Filling a glass with clean drinking water from your tap at home is something many people take for granted. Unfortunately, this is not the case in areas where harsh climate conditions or lack of financial resources make it difficult to install a domestic supply of safe drinking water. A 2019 WHO/UNICEF study showed that 2.2 billion people lack access to safely managed drinking water services. In this context, bottled water continues to be the only option. Although most bottles are recyclable, collection efforts are failing to keep up with demand, resulting in increasing quantities of plastic waste.
