Pop-Up Cafe Selling Only Tap Water Opens in London
By Ciaran McCormick on Friday, May 29, 2015
A bar serving only tap water has opened for one day only in Shoreditch, East London. It follows the trend of chic cafes selling only one type of food like cereal or toast, except this pop up shop is a stunt for a good cause. The bar, named H2Only, has been set up by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution to raise awareness for the coastal charity that relies on donations.
It is part of their ten day H2Only campaign to encourage people to skip costly drinks like coffee and alcohol. They are motivating people to fundraise for their efforts and donate the money saved to the charity.
RNLI lifeboat head Andy Mayo, said: “We rely on public funding to help us stay on the water rescuing anyone who needs our help, so we’re asking people to stay on the water themselves for 10 days.
“Our temporary bar is a fun, cheap way to recruit Londoners and raise awareness of the amazing work the RNLI does.”
The trendy bar is a great way to raise awareness and funds for its important work. With just a single cold tap and cardboard cups for customers to drink from, they have secured headlines in the Evening Standard and Mail Online.
