Bottled water coolers have become ubiquitous in todayâ€™s office environment. This should not be the case with so many alternatives available to go bottleless and free from plastic in the office.
Bottleless water coolers are an easy alternative. Using Point-Of-Use filtration systems, bottleless water cooler companies allow for a less expensive, convenient and environmentally friendly alternative to bottled water coolers.
Just consider the environmental impact of bottled water coolers alone. On average, it takes about a gallon of water to produce a gallon of bottled water. Not to mention, pumping water from the gournd devastates eco systems and dries up water supplies, thus wasting our natural resources. For one year of manufacturing plastic bottles, in the United States alone, 1.5 million barrels of oil are consumed. This is enough to generate electricity for 250,000 homes or fuel 100,000 cares for an entire year.
On the other hand, bottleless water coolers can cut energy and greenhouse gas emissions, while also reducing plastic in landfills and in the oceans. Quench USA, Inc. is doing just that. Currently serving more than 25,000 businesses, including a third of the Fortune 100, with fresh and safe drinking water, Quench understands the need to go bottle-free.
Since Quenchâ€™s founding, the elimination of bottled water coolers has been the equivalent of planting over 4 million trees. Thatâ€™s just from the quantity of greenhouse gases weâ€™ve kept out of the atmosphere. Quench coolers cut energy use by 65% compared to regular bottled water coolers and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 98% by eliminating the need to manufacture, bottle, store and distribute bottled water.
