One of the most talked about is the ‘Dubai Can’ initiative:
The Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, introduced ‘Dubai Can’. It’s a citywide sustainability effort that would turn the tide on plastic and motivate people to take action and reduce the use of plastic bottles actively. At present in Dubai, there are 40 free drinking water fountains placed all over in the city.
