The Mobile Hydration Station is part of the not for profit organisation Boomerang Bags, providing filtered water, chilled water at indoor and outdoor events across northern NSW and southeast QLD. With the aim of reducing plastic water bottle use, the Water Swallow is equipped with drinking fountains and taps and provides an environmentally sustainable way for event patrons to fill up their water bottles or to get a drink.
The Water Swallow has two drinking bubblers and six tap outlets, which allows event patrons to easily and conveniently access filtered drinking water. The innovative design enables it to be either hooked up to town water or use a 1200 litre self-contained unit with a state of the art Grander Water filtration system as well as an onboard water meter to track usage.
The Water Swallow not only reduces an event's environmental footprint in terms of plastic water bottle use but also reduces waste throughout and after an event. The Water Swallow also provides a platform for event patrons to increase their awareness of the harmful impacts of single-use plastics and improve their environmental sustainability. This increased awareness is the most beneficial tool in creating a more environmentally conscious society and a more sustainable future.
"The Mobile Hydration Station attended the Gold Coast’s Biggest Tree Planting Day. We recognised supplying bottled water conflicted with our values and the aim of the event, which is to reduce the pollution of waterways. Having the Mobile Hydration Station at the plastic water bottle free event ensured we addressed the needs of over 350 volunteers who planted 10,000 plants and reduced our waste output by 80%!"
"The MHS worked seamlessly as part of our logistical operation, aligning with our principles, specifically demonstrating sound environmental practices by reducing plastic water bottle waste and providing an important service in the form of filtered drinking water. I would strongly encourage any organiser to integrat.e the MHS into any planning and budget framework"
"We have used the MHS at two of our most recent events - Cooly Gold 2014 and The SLSA Australian Championships in 2015. Both of these events hosted thousands of participants and spectators over multiple days - all of whom we have a responsibility to provide adequate hydration in what can be a harsh summer environment. We found the MHS to be a simple, practical solution."
