The Mayor of London has revealed the location of 50 new water fountains in a bid to cut plastic waste across the city.

Partnered with Thames Water, the new water fountain network will include 20 rail and Underground stations, as well as high streets, parks, shopping areas, business districts, large green spaces and other publicly accessible areas with high footfall.

Greenwich will see five new fountains across the borough - but will it work?

The average Londoner currently buys more than three plastic water bottles every week, which equates to around 175 bottles every year per person.

The fountains are easily identifiable by a water droplet design and each one is fitted with a device to measure the amount of water dispensed to demonstrate the equivalent number of single-use plastic bottles saved.

Londoners can also access free drinking water from more than 2,500 cafes, shops and businesses offering free tap water through the Refill London scheme, with participating outlets putting easily identifiable refill stickers in their windows.

So where can you find the new fountains in Greenwich?
