The Good Human is reporting that the small town of Bundanoon in Australia is aggressively tackling the unnecessary use of bottled water. The 2,000 residents will not be able to buy bottled water at stores in the town.

Additionally, local businesses will have to refill any reusable water bottles for free, and the town will be installing water fountains on Main Street.

As David from the Good Human observes, this “will only have a small impact locally, but it could have big repercussions around the rest of the world.”

Bundanoon is taking the lead. Let’s hope other towns and cities follow.
