Port of Barcelona: Elimination of plastic bottles

06 May 2021

In order to contribute to the elimination of the use of plastic containers, an initiative was launched in 2019 by the Port of Barcelona to replace plastic bottles used by the Port Authority workers with a system of water sources with water treatment located in the common spaces and in the offices of the organisation's buildings. So far, 30 water sources have been installed, leading to a saving of 118,680 plastic water bottles. The Port hopes to consolidate and extend this scheme, reducing waste directly at the source without needing to implement reuse or recycling initiatives.
