The continuous use of plastic water bottles in the United States is greatly affecting the environment. In 2006, between 827,000 to 1.3 million tons of plastic water bottles were produced in the States, requiring the energy equivalent of 50 million barrels of oil, reports the Clean Air Council. What's more, 76.5 percent of these bottles ended up in landfills.
The overuse of plastic water bottles may be coming to an end as consumers across the country are turning their attention toward green practices. Businesses are also attempting to become more environmentally aware in the workplace by switching their traditional jug water coolers with more efficient water dispensers from Quench.
Quench's bottleless water coolers tap directly into a building's main water supply, filters out bacteria and regulates the water temperature. Business owners who want to continue implementing innovative and green products in the workplace may want to consider the benefits of a top-of-the-line water cooler service. Quench can effectively install any of their point-of-use water dispensers into an office in just a few hours.
Businesses can make an immediate positive impact on the environment and become more green in the office by using bottleless water coolers.
