Bottled Water Delivery is Not Eco-Friendly
Bottling water for delivery is wasteful and has a dramatic negative impact on our environment*:
- The processes of manufacturing plastic jugs, bottling water, and shipping burns 6 million gallons of fuel each year and releases 2.5 million tons of carbon dioxide into our atmosphere (that’s the equivalent of the emissions of 520,000 cars for an entire year!)
- 80% of plastic water bottles are not recycled, resulting in 70 million pounds of plastic waste dumped in landfills each year.
- 3 liters of water are used for every 1 liter of water that is bottled, wasting millions of gallons of water each year.

One Quench filtered water dispenser can prevent up to 925 5-gallon water bottles from entering landfills each year!
Hear from one of our customers:
“We’re constantly evaluating the environmental impact of our operations to make sure we get healthy organic food to you in the most sustainable way possible. By switching to a bottleless water dispenser, we’re eliminating the use of plastic bottles for our water storage. This particular system’s environmental impact is equivalent to planting 30 trees per year.”
