You bet. Traditional water delivery services rely on 5-gallon plastic jugs. In just one year, the manufacturing of those plastic jugs, the process of bottling the water, and then trucking it to you
- Uses 140 million kilowatt hours of electricity
- Burns 6 million gallons of fuel
- Dumps 70 million pounds of plastic waste into landfills
- Wastes million 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. Learn more about our Environmental Stewardship.
