Smart Choices for the Environment
We are all aware of the environmental costs of road transportation. Using a water filtration cooler means these costs are reduced. Eliminating the need for weekly or fortnightly delivery of water bottles lessens the amount of pollution in the atmosphere.
"Australia's love affair with bottled water is costing the planet 314,000 barrels of oil a year" The Age - 17 August 2007
Clean Up Australia founder and activist Ian Kiernan has labelled the bottled water industry as a “con”, and has called on governments to discourage people from buying water in bottles.
Every day, tens of thousands of water-cooler plastic bottles go through a multi-stage washing, cleaning and filling process, which uses damaging detergents and wastes thousands of litres of water. Not to mention the large quantities of oil and energy that are used to create the polypropylene bottles, which eventually end up in waste systems, unable to break down for years.
For every full bottle of water as much again is used in the production process.
Every 15 litre bottle of water purchased represents 30 litres of water processed.
As if Australia doesn’t need all the water it produces!
In addition, the hundreds of diesel trucks transporting these plastic bottles to and from businesses emit harmful C02 into the environment and waste thousands of litres of fuel. Put simply, bottled water is an environmental nightmare.
There is a solution: Point of Use Water Coolers from Call A Cooler produce clean, great tasting water, filtered through a Tri-stage or two-stage filter system, right in your own home or office – eliminating the need for plastic bottles, deliveries, storage or the risk of wastage and injury when loaded onto the dispenser. This fully-maintained service provides an unlimited supply of clean, clear water for a low, set-and-forget fee.
Together we can do the right thing for the future of Australia.
