Annual global initiative, Plastic Free July, is once again upon us to highlight the major issue plastic has become in Australia and around the world. Plastic Free July is an opportunity to understand how individuals and businesses can do their part to reduce plastic waste.
One of these is reducing the consumption of single-use plastic bottles. Those who are regularly opting for bottled water over the tap could make significant savings each month simply by making the switch to filtered water via a BRITA jug. According to BIS Oxford Economics, 10% of Australian households mainly drink bottled water at home, which equates to using 5.8 million plastic bottles a day and costing $3.5 million each day.
A company with 100 employees could save 506kg plastic waste per year by using a dispenser rather than plastic bottled water – the equivalent weight to a newborn grey whale. By working with BRITA, it’s possible to compare and demonstrate the impact sustainable water solutions are having by offering an eco-friendly alternative to single-use plastic.
By using BRITA VIVREAU water dispensers, businesses can minimise their carbon footprint, reduce waste and save money. Beyond these benefits, it encourages hydration among employees, improving productivity and satisfaction.
BRITA VIVREAU water dispensers are designed to take up minimal space. There is no need to purchase, transport or store expensive pre-bottled water. BRITA’s high standards and extensive experience guarantee safety. BRITA’s HygienePlus solution provides an effective three-zone protection and is based on more than 20 years’ experience in the healthcare market.
