The Brick Companies (TBC) is partnering with Annapolis Green on their Refill Revolution campaign by sponsoring portable outdoor refill stations called “Naptown Taps.” Naptown Taps dispenses unlimited filtered water into a user's reusable bottle or cup, reducing the need for throwaway plastic water bottles. Thanks to this initiative over 10,000 individual water bottles have been displaced in the Annapolis Community.
The Brick Companies' support of this effort will make it possible for Naptown Taps to provide free filtered water while reducing plastic pollution at Brendan Sailing Sessions, Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating (CRAB) Cup Regatta at Eastport Yacht Club in August, and other select sailing events in 2022.
“We are proud to be involved in this important campaign that engages our community members to reduce plastics and minimize the impact on climate change,” said Amy Natoli, Vice President of Risk & Property Management, and leader of the Environmental Team at The Brick Companies. TBC is proud to be recognized as a “Founding One Hundred supporter” of Annapolis Green. This important collaboration supports TBC’s mission of partnering with like-minded, environmentally driven businesses and organizations within our community. Here are a few additional tips from Go Green team of The Brick Companies on how you can reduce plastic usage:
Use refillable water bottles instead of plastic
Purchase juice (and other liquids) in glass containers instead of plastic
Use glass storage containers instead of plastic
Minimize purchase of foods stored in plastic containers (think simple like butter and eggs)
Bring reusable bags to the grocery store
Choose bar soaps instead of liquids in plastic containers
Buy dried foods in bulk rather than pre-packaged (think nuts and spices)
