Event description

Description

The UK uses 7.7 billion single-use plastic water bottles each year. How does a city change its water culture? The London Fountain Co. founder Jane Withers speaks with Corina Angheloiu of the #OneLess campaign on cultural initiatives to reduce plastic waste from water consumption.

Part of 'Material Consequences' - the theme for the 2018 programme in the Brompton Design District during the London Design Festival; questioning and rethinking materials and waste. Curated by Jane Withers Studio.


The London Fountain Co. presents a prototype for a new drinking water fountain designed by Michael Anastassiades. The first fountain will be launched at the V&A's John Madejski Garden during the London Design Festival 2018 and later in the autumn in a public space in South Kensington at the initiative of South Kensington Estates.

During LDF 2018 and as part of Brompton's 'Material Consequences' programme #OneLess presents the '#OneLess Design Fellowship: Unlocking London’s Refill Revolution'. It is part of the #OneLess campaign, which brings together emerging designers, innovators, urbanists and architects to tackle persistent barriers of plastic bottle waste that organisations across London.
