When you take the time to consider how much waste your warehouse operation likely puts out on a daily, weekly, monthly and annual basis, the amount may be staggering. After all, you handle a significant amount of materials each day, and workers aren’t always trained in how to recycle or dispose of items in the most efficient manner – not to mention, sustainability comes with a price.
Recently, a report from the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) found water bottle consumption rose by 4.1 percent on a year-over-year basis. The uptick in the purchasing and disposing of these containers has certainly led to an increase in waste piling up in landfills. There is a good chance some of these bottles came from your workplace, so switching to more eco-friendly practices may impact your carbon footprint and budget in numerous ways.
While implementing methods to handle the disposal of warehouse materials may be more complex, you can make positive strides toward sustainability by removing water bottles from the work environment and switching to bottleless coolers. Quench offers businesses a wide variety of water dispensers that tap directly into a building’s main water line and do not use 5-gallon jugs. What’s more, these water coolers can be situated within 100 feet from any water main, so even in your large warehouse, you can supply your workers with superior drinking water every day.
Quench is the leading point-of-use water cooler supplier in the United States, and the company offers its clients a full spectrum of advantages such as trained technicians, top-notch customer service and the pleasure of consuming high-quality water through innovative closed-system dispensers.
