Water cooler London learns a thing or two from Bolivia

We’re quite a well travelled lot at water cooler London (have we mentioned that before?), and only last year we journeyed to the beautiful country of Bolivia, where we learnt a thing or two about saving water.

Summer is well and truly on the way, and many of us will be jetting off to exotic locations to get away from the UK, from the office water cooler routine, to soak up the sun somewhere where it is more-or-less guaranteed (rather than prayed for, like here at home). If you’ve got a long-haul […]

It’s been a while since there was a decent film made about a water cooler, and that’s why we love the idea of producing one. We have in fact made a new friend recently- the lovely James, who just happens to be studying for a PhD (yes, we know, very clever indeed) in film at […]

A record-breaking week for Water Cooler Wimbledon

The watercooler world usually dries up (ho ho ho) over the winter period, as temperatures drop and people are less inclined/have less need to stay completely hydrated and refreshed in the cooler weather.
