The Water Brothers (and they really are related) are co-hosts of a TV Ontario show of the same name.  Their focus is to draw attention to water issues across our planet.

The app shows two sources of water – confirmed locations that are official distributors of water as well as user-submitted locations to harness the power of the crowd.

  1. It’s so great to see this kind of support. It’s really a great way of using tools that are already available. Years ago when I traveled to South Korea I was amazed to see that water was offered for free almost everywhere you went. Grocery stores, gas stations, shops, all seemed to have stainless steel cups in a UV sterilized cupboard beside a fountain. There was a used cup receptacle and cups were washed before being put back in the cupboard. I found it refreshing that we weren’t being forced to spend money to fulfill this basic human need and I’m glad that Toronto now has a comparable alternative to disposable plastic bottles.
