Scape have partnered with GiveMeTap to provide tap water at Scape East as part of a great new scheme.
With summer just around the corner, drinking water is becoming increasingly important, but also expensive. Scape Living is the first student accommodation provider to partner with social enterprise GiveMeTap helping you stay hydrated in a sustainable and student-friendly way.
Box Noodle and The Kitchen are now official taps on the GiveMeTap free water map, providing free water to students while out and about, to and from lectures. No questions. No hassle. No having to buy £1.20 single use plastic bottles of water!
Edwin Broni-Mensah founded GiveMeTap whilst a student at the University of Manchester; after he found it difficult to get water on the go. He decided to sell stylish stainless steel water bottles, which can be used to get free water refills from a growing network of cafes and restaurants across London, including those at Scape Living. The £12 bottle helps you save around £300 from plastic bottled water. That difference is enough for a weekend mini-break!
Just look out for the blue GiveMeTap sticker on the window and you know that you can tap up whenever you need to stay hydrated. Top up your bottle on the way to classes or after a tasty box of noodles, and never pay for bottled water ever again!
Not only that, for every bottle sold we can give someone in Africa access to clean water. We have installed water pumps and boreholes in impoverished villages in Malawi, Namibia and Ghana, helping over 5,000 people gain access to clean water. We like to think of this as Water for You, Water for Everyone.
Scape and GiveMeTap are hoping to create a world where we can buy, consume and do good all at the same time. To get involved with GiveMeTap and help us hydrate universities around the world, visit the website or contact us.
