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 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
Join our clients in the green thinking movement, and help reduce the amount of plastic bottles in the world!
The smart alternative: water stations for filtered drinking water
Designed specifically for maritime environments, our bottle filling station contains filtration equipment for clean and safe water on board. Problems with crew not trusting your onboard water supplies? With our water station, the RO filtration unit can be wall mounted alongside the drinking station in order to convince your crew the drinking water is safe for drinking. Provide the crew with their own reusable bottles and save on expenses and waste!
