Offering a more sustainable alternative to bought-in bottled water, helping to lower your carbon footprint and reduce your waste while bringing ethical benefits to your business too.
A more sustainable approach to drinking water. With growing environmental concerns over the manufacture, transportation, storage and disposal of bottled water and its packaging, many businesses are looking for alternative solutions to meet their sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) targets.
By installing an EcoPure Waters’ mains water filtration system and using reusable glass bottles, you can eliminate the need to buy-in environmentally damaging bottled water in single-use bottles, usually in PET packaging.
In sustainability terms, this brings you a number of benefits. Reusable glass bottles eliminate the need to manufacture a new bottle each time; they have a lower carbon footprint over their lifetime; they remove the need for waste and recycling; they have zero landfill potential; and they reduce food miles.
Operationally, these bottles are great news too. Because bottles are only filled as they are needed, there’s no need to store and refrigerate a large stock of bottled water. There is also no need to remember to order bottled water, no stock control issues and no danger of ever running out! Typically, staff can produce in excess of 150 litres of fresh, quality filtered water per week in less than 10 minutes a day usage.
Economically, the good news is that many businesses are finding that rather than costing more to take this ‘greener’ option, it’s actually costing them much less per litre than bought-in bottled water bottle’ scheme.
EcoPure Waters’ systems also bring ethical benefits. For every system we sell in the UK we make a donation to the charity Just a Drop, which provides clean water and sanitation projects in poor communities around the world. We donate enough to give clean, safe water to 50 children for up to ten years.
If desired, your organisation also has the opportunity to make a similar long-term commitment to this charity through a ‘donation per bottle’ scheme.
As part of our own Corporate Social Responsibility strategy, we have teamed up with Just A Drop the international water aid charity.
Set up in 1998, Fiona Jeffery, the charity’s founder, learnt that just £1 can deliver clean water to a child for up to 10 years. Just a Drop was born, based on the premise that if people can be encouraged to give a little then collectively we can make a huge difference.
