The sleek, UBS-sponsored fountains, flowing with locally-sourced filtered water, are uniquely designed to easily fill up reusable water bottles – and are also equipped with traditional fountains. This free amenity makes experiencing downtown Stamford and its parks even more enjoyable for residents and visitors. "We are delighted that Stamford Downtown is part of this extraordinary effort to bring the benefits of hydration to our community," said Sandy Goldstein, President of Stamford Downtown Special Services District." "As a member of the Stamford community, we have a keen interest in the sustainability of the city as well as the wellbeing of its residents," said Lori Feinsilver, UBS's Head of Community Affairs and Executive Communications, Americas. "We all understand the importance of water and hydration to good health. Equally important is the positive environmental impact that our partnership with Smart Tap will have by encouraging the use of reusable water bottles." Bill Apfelbaum, founder of Smart Tap and CEO, said, "The impact of disposable plastic water bottles on the environment is significant, costing upwards of $200 million per year and causing in excess of 1.5 million tons of landfill waste. By encouraging people to drink locally-treated water and using reusable bottles when doing so, we can stem the tide of waste in this country and improve the health of our citizens."
