Sustainability Champion: Te Ipukarea Society Creates Awareness for Community Water Stations

A nationwide project to provide Cook Islands community and visitors easy access to Free UV treated water has seen the delivery of 21 stations across Rarotonga.

These free UV Treated Water Stations provide the community and visitors easy access to safe drinking water and will help in reducing single plastic bottle usage that would end up in the landfill.

This project is aligned to the Sustainable Development Goal 6 (ensuring access to water and sanitation for all) and encourages sustainability throughout the Cook Islands

Te Ipukarea Society (TIS) is a proactive nongovernment environment (NGO) formed to help look after our heritage. Partnering with Cook Islands Tourism, National Environment Services, Infrastructure Cook Islands and To Tatou Vai in the Cook Islands; TIS have created awareness visuals to educate and inform the community and visitors to the island, the locations of these Free UV treated water stations.

The one minute video and map identifying locations of these water stations, provide the community and visitors a visual aid on the availability and accessibility of water stations located around the island.

The video will also be featured on the local television and distributed to the Tourism Industry and through Social Channels.

Tourism establishments in Cook Islands share these sites with their visitors as well.
