TapIt!

April 28, 2010
by

“Water Wednesday” is the perfect day to introduce one of our new partners.  TapIt  is a brilliant concept that started in New York a few years ago to solve a very simple problem.  You have a water bottle, you want to eco-reuse, but where do you refill it?  Some stores are “ok” with you walking in and asking to fill up your water bottle, but TapIt came up with an ingenious way to take all of the “could be” awkwardness out of the situation.

Businesses that support TapIt have a sticker in their window so you know you can go in and fill up.  Any walker, runner, cyclist, and every day person can appreciate this concept.  But where are the official TapIt sites?  The TapIt website has a map, and there’s even an iPhone app to guide you as well.

At edot, we LOVE this.  In fact, we love it so much we’ve given TapIt “dot” value on our drop down menu under “eco-reuse.” We’re using resources that already exist, hydrating, and protecting the planet at the same time.  What’s not to love?  Current TapIt communities can be found here.  While edot is a global program, we’re home-based in Seattle, and you can bet we’re going to help TapIt settle into this area as soon as possible!

    That’s cool! There have been many times as a busy mom out and about that I would have loved to refill our water bottles and sippy cups. Hope it comes to Seattle soon!

      Thanks Jennifer (Did you know we have two Jennifer Johnson’s following edot? Funny…). We’re going to be working with TapIt to help them find businesses who want to support the cause. If you’d like to help, let me know! I’m super excited about getting it here to0!

        You know I loved your post. My biggest comment now is, who is going to tell Babycenter their supocribtisn system needs an overhaul? Because someone definitely needs to say something!

        So that’s the case? Quite a revelation that is.
