Want to live a more sustainable lifestyle but not sure where to start? Well, if you are using a water dispenser, you are already making a positive impact on the environment.
We will discuss why are water dispensers better for the environment below.
Reduce plastic use
Every minute, humans use a staggering 1.2 million plastic bottles! Unbelievably, only 9% of all the plastic that is manufactured is recycled; half of what we make every year will eventually end up as single-use items.
Having a water dispenser encourages you to avoid using single-use plastic bottles to quench your thirst and instead use reusable water bottles or glass cups for a drink.
Reduced Carbon Emissions from using water dispensers.
It is known that the transportation of bottled water globally leads to a significant amount of carbon emissions. A. study conducted by the Beverage Industry Environmental Roundtable (BIER) in 2012 found that the overall carbon footprint for a European 1.5 litre bottle was estimated at 163 grams of CO2 per 1.5 litre bottle, while the overall carbon footprint for the North American 500 millilitre bottle was estimated at 83 grams of CO2 per 500 millilitre bottle.
Hence, by reducing the amount of single-use bottled water consumed, we can reduce the number of carbon emissions emitted when manufacturing and transporting water.
Knowing that we all play a part in reducing the amount of plastic that ends up in landfills and reducing carbon emissions just by switching to using a water dispenser is one way we can make a positive impact on the environment!
