Have you ever wondered how many plastic bottles end up as waste in our environment every day? On the web or on television, we can find videos and photos showing downright piles of empty plastic bottles, or seas, lakes and rivers full of them. Plastic does not decompose, staying in the environment for hundreds of years, plastic particles are eaten by marine animals, plastic penetrates crops - all this means that we 'eat' plastic every day, which certainly does not make us healthier. Environmentalists are sounding the alarm that we are facing a plastic doom, but I don't think we are necessarily taking their words seriously yet, and the threat is real.
Drinking water nowadays
There's a trend at the moment for being fit - eating healthily, exercising and drinking more pure water, because only adequate hydration makes us feel better and is good for our health. So, we go to the shop and buy more plastic-wrapped water, the plastic waste bins are bursting at the seams filled with plastic bottles, because since you have to drink 1.5-2 litres of water a day, so everyone who drinks bottled water throws 1-2 empty bottles into the rubbish every day. That's for one person, and if there are 2 people in the household, that already makes us a number of 4, and if there are children? That's even more. And let's think that this happens in every flat, in every home... what do we get? An alarming amount of rubbish in the form of plastic bottles!
Have you ever wondered what happens to this waste? They languish in landfills, ending up in our lakes, forests, seas? Only some of it is recycled, and processing it requires a lot of energy and water. Both the recycling and the disposal of plastic bottles result in huge quantities of toxic and carcinogenic substances entering our atmosphere. Is this what we breathe? Nice? Not so much...
Cities without plastic
For years, states, local governments and various foundations have been educating the public and encouraging the use of various eco-friendly solutions to ensure that our actions do not have such a negative impact on the planet. We are eliminating plastic bags, plastic straws, cutlery, cups and trying to reduce the consumption of water in plastic bottles. But what is the alternative? It's simple. There are many bidons on the market, reusable bottles that each of us, when leaving home or work, should fill with clean tap water and enjoy its freshness. Yes, yes - tap water is perfectly drinkable, but it must meet very high standards, be clean, at the right temperature and free of micro-organisms. And this is exactly what Polish tap water is like, as the water supply companies write and boast about on their websites and social media accounts. There are towns and cities that have completely given up bottled water when working in the magistrate's office, at customer service points, during picnics and city festivals, and local government officials encourage in various campaigns to give up plastic and choose ecological solutions.
Eco-friendly water dispensers
Such solutions are the springs, sprinklers and drinking water dispensers installed in urban areas and public spaces. These modern devices solve the problem of water distribution in offices, office buildings, hospitals, clinics or to employees. Those who have so far been reluctant to drink water simply from the kitchen or bathroom tap (because this is indeed not the best way) are eagerly opting for dedicated devices, which are not infrequently equipped with water cooling and gassing functions. These dedicated devices are used solely for water distribution, and can be fitted with additional filters or disinfecting UV lamps if desired.
Safe and hygienic use
Using them is completely safe, hygienic and simple. For many years now, we have been supplying offices, offices, schools and urban areas with springs, spas and drinking water stations. These functional solutions make it possible to access drinking water wherever it is needed: at work, when walking, when doing errands at the office, etc. All you have to do is carry a bottle with you and fill it up at the dispenser. Some solutions allow you to drink water directly from the dispenser, without using a cup or bottle. But these days we recommend touchless dispensers, those that dispense water without you having to press the activation buttons. Such a solution is the A171-BF12 and BF16 series, as well as those models but equipped with very useful counters indicating how many plastic bottles have not reached the environment (-BCD models).
Bottle counter, UV lamps, filters
It is also worth looking at our indoor units that cool water but also carbonate it. The wide range of products allows you to choose a model with the water types of your choice: room-temperature water, chilled water, carbonated water, hot water or lightly carbonated water.
All units can be retrofitted with water filters or disinfectant UV lamps, or you can choose a model with an integrated UV lamp. If you would like to find out more about these solutions, please contact our representatives, they will explain everything and allow you to choose the most optimal solution. Stop buying water in plastic, be eco.
