Hydration is essential to good health and vitality…we all need plenty of clean drinking water. In the workplace, our water needs to be clean, cold, convenient and affordable.
Bottled water is a messy business. Plastic water bottles are made from oil…17 million barrels a year, actually! And it takes three times the amount of water to make the bottle as it does to fill it.
Once manufactured, these bottles are filled with treated water at a bottling facility, warehoused and then loaded onto trucks…and finally, delivered to their destination…where they clutter up your office.
The bottled water cooler itself is an open well with no barriers to air or water-borne bacteria or other contamination.
And you can almost count on someone being injured while lifting those awkward 40-pound bottles.
