Bottling water is not only wasteful and expensive, it squanders the planet’s resources. In just one year, the manufacturing of plastic jugs, bottling, and delivery of water:
- Eats up 140 million kilowatt hours of electricity
- Burns 6 million gallons of fuel
- Dumps 70 million pounds of plastic waste to landfills
- Wastes millions of gallons of water
Quench filtered water coolers, on the other hand, have a positive impact. Replacing just one traditional 5-gallon jug cooler is the greenhouse gas equivalent of planting up to 120 trees each year. And you’ll save money, too – it’s the greener solution that lets you keep more green!
Switching to Quench water coolers has enabled HUMC to eliminate 312,000 5-gallon plastic jugs from landfills, save 3,553 gallons of fuel, and eliminate 91 metric tons of CO2 from the atmosphere!
