The pilot with Join the Pipe tapstations at NS stations has officially kicked off at the stations Almere and Amersfoort (lasting for a period of 6 months)!

We are Jointhepipe.org, the first social community of tap water drinkers.
People from all over the world are joining and sharing the same dream of redistributing
water in a fairer way.
Over a billion people in the world do not have access to clean drinking water,
while in western countries each of us wastes 70 litres of drinkable water every day
just to flush our toilets.
Since May 2010 over 3500 people have joined, together with numerous companies,
universities, city councils, water companies, schools, airports and restaurants.
To raise money we sell specially designed bottles, carafes and tap stations resembling
elements of a water pipe, and restaurants and festivals make donations by selling
Jointhepipe tap water. Together we are building the longest water pipeline in the world.
By drinking tap water you also help to reduce the enormous amount of plastic
waste and CO2 emissions caused by the production and transport of bottled spring water.
Please join us! With everyone's help the pipe will continue to grow until we
live in a world where half the people have drinkable water - and the other half do too.
every tap station here means clean drinking water there
Where can you find us
This map shows the location of all our tap stations, outlets that sell our bottles, restaurants that serve Jointhepipe tap water and all our water projects in developing countries.
The bartap, the public tap and the carafe with joining glasses.
After a successful pilot this summer involving the sale of tap water for charity in several restaurants and festivals we will be rolling out this concept again next year. Tap water is much better for the environment! No transport costs, no heap of empty bottles and of course it saves on the purchase.
Tap Water at a Fee!
Service costs money, and besides, tap water in many countries is often of top quality and just as tasty.
With the money you save not having to purchase bottled water, you can order Join the Pipe bar-taps offering chilled water with or without carbonation. Included in this program, is a donation for water projects in developing countries. So, stand out from your competition and let your customers know that you care about the fair distribution of drinking water worldwide!
Research has shown that people are quite willing to pay for charity tap water in restaurants.
Serve tap water only and help us in building the longest water pipe in the world, until we live in a world were everybody has clean water to drink.

For as little as €400 you can help finance a hand pump providing clean drinking water to more than 100 people.
Every year over $100 billion is spent worldwide on bottled water. While only $15 billion is needed to reduce by half the number of people without clean water. Please order Jointhepipe.org tap water when you go out. For every restaurant or festival that joins we place a pump in a developing country. Please drink tap water only and donate your savings.
of public donations and donations from restaurants and festivals go directly to water projects and the people in need.
We are thankful for the support of all our members in the last couple of years. Thanks to you we were able to expand our network and dream. Together with all our members, fans and partners we were able to succesfully set up over 80 tap water stations throughout The Netherlands and we hope soon it will be more.
