Sustainability – we’re set to banish single-use plastics

We tick all the boxes in terms of energy-saving efforts and corporate responsibility, so instead of talking about that, we’d like to focus on our fight against single-use plastics. We’ve already taken them our of our dispensers (which are mains-fed), but now we’re looking at ways to take remove them for the end-user as well. We’re looking at innovative technologies that encourage the use of reusable drinks bottles at the water dispenser.

Rinse and sanitise personal drinks bottles

Don’t worry about lingering tastes, off-putting odours, or growing bacteria on your drinks bottle. We’re looking at options that completely service personal drinks bottles to ensure they’re always suitable for a refill.

Supply and dispense reusable bottles

Misplaced your drinks bottle or need a new one? Again, we’re looking at machines that can dispense a new bottle to encourage users to reuse what they have, rather than rely on single-use receptacles.

Eliminate single-use plastics from circulation

We’ve already removed single-use plastics from our dispensers, but now we need to do more to remove them from everyday use. We’re looking to solve this problem through innovations in our products.
