Bottled Water Delivery Has A Big Environmental Footprint. Go Bottleless Instead.
Bottled water is a wasteful enterprise. There just isn't a reason to put water into bottles and then drive it around. Consider a Quench bottleless cooler!
Each year the bottled water cooler business:
Consumes 140 million kilowatt hours of electricity
Wastes 2.7 billion gallons of water
Burns close to 6 million gallons of fuel
Dumps more than 35,000 tons of waste into landfills
Eliminate bottled water from your office, and you can feel pretty good about your contribution. Let Quench show you an alternative to water bottle delivery.
Bottleless Water Saves Energy
A lot of energy is required to produce bottled water. From energy consumption in the manufacture of bottles to the energy required to bottle, move, and store them, Eliminate bottled water and replace it with bottle-free water to help save energy.
By switching to bottleless coolers, you’re helping to save energy. That’s a real and easy step you can take towards greater sustainability in your business.
Bottleless Water Saves Water
Two to five bottles of water. That’s what it takes to manufacture a water bottle, including all the process steps to extract the petroleum, make the plastic, then form the bottle.
One more bottle of water. That’s what it takes to fill a bottle of water. Water is used to generate power. Water is used to wash used bottles before re-use. And water is wasted in the process of bottling water.
By switching to bottleless water, you’re helping to save water.
Bottleless Water Reduces Dependence On Petroleum
1,500,000 barrels of oil are used to manufacture plastic water bottles every year. That’s a lot of oil. There are a lot of obvious reasons to reduce that figure. Not least of which is dependence on commerce with foreign countries that we’d rather not finance. The environmental consequences simply to extract that oil are also unpleasant.
By switching to bottleless water, you’re helping to reduce our dependence on petroleum.
Bottleless Water Reduces Global Warming
Power plants and transportation are major sources of greenhouse gas emissions. Reducing the use of electricity – primarily generated from fossil fuels – is perhaps the most important way to reduce GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions. Transportation is almost exclusively based on the use of fossil fuels. Every mile not travelled by water delivery truck means fuel not consumed and greenhouse gases not emitted.
By switching to bottleless water, you’re getting green water coolers and helping to sustainably reduce the emission of greenhouse gases.
Bottleless Water Is An Easy Way To Make A Real Sustainable Contribution
No bottles. No water deliveries. No wasted energy. No landfill waste. Bottleless water coolers are environmentally-friendly, green water coolers. Bottleless water is a way to leave a green footprint.
