Legislation will encourage the use of network water to reduce the use of plastic bottles
For several years in European bodies, there has been great interest in reducing plastic waste, including plastic water bottles. For this reason, European legislation on network water is being reviewed, to give the general public greater confidence in tap water and encourage them to consume less bottled water.
In Spain, through its Autonomous Communities, there is also a large movement of this type, encouraging the use of water coolers in public places and tap water being offered in restaurants. In restaurants in central Europe it is already a regular practice to offer jugs or bottles of tap water to clients.
This legislative movement has been extended, and there are currently 4 Autonomous Communities which have developed legislative projects – Andalusia, the Balearic Islands, Navarra and Valencia. However, the perspective of legislative elections is causing the majority of these projects to be put on hold before seeing who the next party in government is.
