Reusable Water Bottles
Staying hydrated is essential for everyone, whether at the job site or at the office. However, the widespread use of plastic drinking bottles has resulted in a significant volume of plastic pollution throughout the world. In order to limit the quantity of plastic our team uses on a daily basis, we have shifted from utilizing plastic bottles and jugs to reusable drinking containers for daily consumption.
About Reusable Water Bottles
To move away from daily disposable plastic jugs and bottles, Ernest Maier is using Pure Water Maryland’s drinking water systems which utilize an inline-based reverse osmosis mechanism to deliver clean and drinkable water for Ernest Maier employees.
Benefits of Reusable Water Bottles
Switching from disposable to reusable water bottles provides many advantages. Here are just a few of the benefits our environment can gain when we switch to reusable water bottles:
- A reduction in plastic waste: It is estimated that billions of plastic drinking containers are manufactured each year with only a tiny percentage of them being recycled, and the small amount of plastic that gets recycled can only go through this process a limited number of times since its fibers will degrade. As a consequence, most plastic winds up in the oceans or landfills where it will leach chemicals that pollute soil as well as wildlife.
- Water bottles made with stainless steel are more hygienic: Since plastic water bottles aren’t safe to clean with hot water, this creates an environment where bad odor and bacteria can thrive. Stainless steel, on the other hand, is food grade and safe to wash with standard dish soap and hot water, allowing it to be cleaned regularly. Steel is also resistant to rust and corrosion, ensuring that there won’t be any metallic taste in the water.
- You’ll save money: Buying a reusable container will save you money over the long term. While the cost might seem high upfront, if properly cared for, these containers will last for a very long time. In contrast, should you buy bottled water from the store, you’re constantly spending money everyday which will eclipse the cost of buying a high-quality steel container over time.
Why Should We Use Reusable Water Bottles?
Water is an absolute necessity for life, and there is no real alternative to it. While the planet is covered in more than 70 percent water, only about 2 percent of it is drinkable. There will even be less drinkable water if we continue to pollute our precious water resources.
Switching from disposable plastic water bottles to reusable bottles might not seem like a big deal, but if enough people contribute, it can make a big difference, and positive change can start with a small group of people. This is why Ernest Maier prioritizes sustainability and water conservation in all our operations, including sustainable drinking practices for our employees.
