The idea One of our employees suggested we stop buying bottled water. Thanks to the suggestion there is now a pilot underway in one of the council's buildings where bottled water machines have been removed and taps, where they don't exist, are being installed
How did this innovation come about? One of our employees suggested it to our value for money ideas scheme – my idea.
What was learnt? This is currently a pilot, which if successful we hope to roll out to the rest of the Council. This will potentially save £7,500 a year in the Council House but if rolled out across the Council could save up to £84,000.
Thank you to Coventry City Council for this example - please contact them for any updates.
