Doing Our Bit To Fight Plastic Waste
As a business within the water industry, we welcome the news today of a new scheme to cut down on plastic bottles and fight plastic waste.
People across the UK will soon be able to refill their water bottles, free of charge, at shopping outlets and public water fountains. The aim is to reduce the waste caused by single-use plastic bottles.
Here at The Water Delivery Company, we will sell water in both reusable bottle refills – which are collected after use – and fully recyclable single-use bottles. We are always looking at alternatives to plastic – finding a solution that is suitable for both our business and domestic customers. For now, plastic is still the best option, however, through our durable, reusable bottles we have virtually zero plastic waste. And through our single-use bottles, we ensure the plastic used is BPA-free and 100% recyclable.
Also, aside from plastic bottles we are working with eco companies to look at alternatives to plastic cups. These include compostable materials, reusable cups, and a collection scheme.
We continue to work with others in the water industry to lead the way in providing alternatives to plastic. Watch this space for more news.
