Audiences > Free Tap Water

Require catering partners, and in your own bars/cafes if you run them in house, to provide tap water free of charge to customers.

How to

If you have a catering partner, build the provision of tap water to customers into your contractual agreement. It will be important for your Green Champion both to personally encourage the action and to ensure it’s being done.

The following steps will help make this possible:

– Make sure washable glasses and cleaning facilities are available to visiting artists/touring groups.

– Ensure staff and the public know which taps provide drinking water.

– Consider providing a drinking fountain for audience members who are not using catering facilities.
