Why your office will benefit from a sparkling water tap

Anthony | January 10, 2024

Demand for sparkling water is bubbling up — with people looking for healthier options when chasing that fizzy fix. Sugar intake from soft drinks is falling year on year, which represents a staggering decline in the interest of traditional pop.

Instead, we’re opting for more low-sugar alternatives that still give us that fizzy fix. Enter: sparkling water. The bubbles boom seems to be driven by a heightened awareness of health and wellness. As such, it’s no surprise that the preference is for delicious drinks that hydrate and provide a nourishing kick.

With this in mind, why not support your team with an integrated tap that dispenses sparkling water at the touch of a button? It offers a convenient alternative drink for the office that can be flavoured and enjoyed in hundreds of different ways (need ideas? Here’s our top 5 sparkling water drinks recipes). It’s also a refreshing win for workplace sustainability because these taps require no single-use plastics in both production and use.

Health benefits of a sparkling water tap

It can be challenging to drink six to eight glasses of fluid a day, as recommended by the NHS Eat Well guide. An office sparkling water tap adds a few bubbly options to the mix, and introduces some welcome variety to regular water. Why not add a slice of lemon, a handful of raspberries, or a low-calorie cordial to make it more interesting?

The same NHS health advice mirrors the general attitude of the nation, stating you should cut down on other sugary and fizzy drinks. Offering sparkling water on tap is a great way to keep the office hydrated and assist with these healthier lifestyle choices.

Being properly hydrated improves mental and physical energy levels, which can affect memory, concentration and even your mood. Not only that, but drinking enough water also aids with digestion, lubricates your joints, keeps muscles hydrated, and can even go a long way to maintain soft skin.

Alongside quality coffee, providing your team sparkling water on tap shows you care.

Offering your team effortless hydration is indispensable, and having sleek water taps in your kitchen is bound to impress your clients too.

A sustainable win

Bulky plastic-bottle water coolers are no longer acceptable in our eco-conscious 2024. Instead, we recommend under counter water taps that connect straight to the mains (instead of being bottle-fed). This means no single-use plastics in your workplace. If you’re an office manager looking to use resources mindfully, contacting us to pick out your ideal water dispensers is a no-brainer.
