Bottleless Water Coolers are…Cool!

Did you ever think of this simple way to save waste, time and money?

Filtering your water on-site via bottleless water coolers–versus water coolers with bottles–

  • can reduce/eliminate the 140 million kilowatt hours of electricity needed to manufacture plastic jugs, fill them with 5 gallons of water and transport them to offices across America.
  • can reduce/eliminate the 6 million gallons of fuel used just to manufacture plastic bottles for the water cooler market in the US every year (1.5 million barrels of oil are used between this and the transportation of said water bottles…every year!)
  • can reduce/eliminate the 70 million pounds of waste sent to landfill referred to earlier.
