The free water dispensers have been a game-changer in reducing the single-use of plastic bottles
Done by GMG, a well-being company along with the Department of Economy and Tourism (DET), the new water station has been set up in Al Qudra, a popular route for cyclists in the UAE.
The drinking water from the stations are kept cool at a temperature of 10°C
…and is also a clean and convenient way to ensure that cyclists and other visitors opt to refill in reusable containers instead of purchasing a plastic bottle and disposing of it after a single-use.
The Dubai Can sustainability initiative is led by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai’s Crown Prince and Chairman of the Executive Council of Dubai.
In short, we love to see it!

Be part of the change AND carry a flask with you wherever you go!
So if you’re ever out and about in the city, consider carrying a flask so you can refill it anytime and for FREE at any of the Dubai Can dispensers. The Dubai Can initiative also encourages communities, businesses, residents, and visitors to install water filters at home, offices and schools to reduce the use of plastic water bottles.
