Bundy On Tap at the Powerhouse Museum

Australia's largest and most popular museum, The Powerhouse Museum, in Sydney, has just revamped one of its permanent exhibitions — EcoLogic : creating a sustainable future. Bundy on Tap is a key exhibit in the section called "Redesigning our world," where the BoT Premium reusable Camelbak bottles are on display with a water bubbler, alongside handwritten letters from school kids praising Bundanoon endeavours.

With the Powerhouse attracting over 700,000 visitors annually inclusion in this permanent exhibit is a yet another way the small village of Bundanoon has been able to leverage the message about the environmental travesty that is the single serve bottled water industry.

Bundy on Tap wins

Bundanoon has taken out this year’s "Waste Management and Litter Reductions" category at the 2011 Keep Australia Beautiful NSW Tidy Towns Sustainable Communities Awards for the 'Bundy on Tap' initiative . Bundanoon also came second in the overall Category C award.

Bundy on Tap was praised for being "one of the most well-thought-out, well-orchestrated and delivered projects" that Tidy Towns assessor Phil Bryant had ever seen.

“Not only has this project been a very worthwhile environmental undertaking, but its acceptance and support by the community as a whole has been outstanding,” Bryant said.

Congratulations to a town that came together to take action. This is further recognition of the positive nature of what Bundanoon has done and the continuing attention Bundy on Tap and bottled water reduction receives over a year since the ban was put in place.
