The Mullumbimby Chamber of Commerce is partnering with Mullum SEED and its Bunya Sustainablity Fund to fundraise for a:
FILTERED WATER DRINKING FOUNTAIN & WATER BOTTLE REFILL STATION.
We want to reduce the use of disposable water bottles in our town.
Did you know that 33% of the plastic waste in our oceans is plastic drink containers?!
Worldwide there is now a higher ratio of plastic in the ocean than food for our fish and sea birds to safely eat.
A public filtered Water Station midway in town on the Santos corner will provide free, fresh, clean filtered water, negating the need to buy water. It will feature:
- Wheelchair accessible drinking fountain
- Multiple bottle refill points
- A dog drinking bowl
- Educational/Promotional signage
- Filtered water usage meter
- Vandal proof stainless steel construction

Do you own a business and want to sponsor this great project?
Simply email email@example.com for more information. Sponsorships packages are available to businesses who give $500 or more. Each sponsor will get their logo on the water fountain when it’s installed.
Let’s make this happen ASAP and then perhaps other towns in the Byron Shire will join in and we can save our sea creatures one less plastic water bottle at a time.
