It's one of our essential core values: Sustainability. In our heavily populated world, we feel we must act responsibly and care for our precious resources.
With water being the most precious of all of our natural sources, we must look at the bigger picture and protect our source water from plastic pollution. Did you realise most plastic waste in the oceans come from plastic bottles onboard vessels?
By 2050, plastic will outweigh fish in our ocean (World Economic Forum)
Providing drinking water to your team or crew in plastic bottles is the most costly and least efficient method of water supply in the history of mankind. So, how bad is it really? A quick overview, with some impressive statistics:
- Plastic bottles take up to 450 years to dissolve
- A million bottles are bought every minute
- 80% of these plastic bottles will never be recycled
- And estimated 10% ends up in the ocean
The smart alternative: water stations for filtered drinking water
With water being the most precious of all our sources, we must look at the bigger picture and protect our oceans from plastic pollution. At Hatenboer-Water we realised we had to come with the alternative. Based on our extensive track-record in water management throughout the Maritime & Offshore industry, we are now offering our Plastic Free @Sea concept to help you to meet your CSR challenges and make a difference. If you are not operating in the maritime industry, you can make the change even more easily by just installing a contact free water bottle filling station.
