Water – a matter of choice

For most people, simply drinking more water, of whatever kind, is  beneficial as water is tooth-kind and calorie-free. It’s really a matter of choice but we think Water Coolers have a number of benefits:

  • The water tastes good, which encourages us to drink as much as we should.
  • There is research showing that the ‘nudge’ effect provided by a constant reminder to eat or drink healthily can have a positive effect. The cooler is often prominent in the office, reception, meeting rooms and elsewhere and so its visibility is helpful.
  • The water is always chilled to a perfect temperature for enjoyment.

Remember, not all coolers are created equal. Choose a Water Cooler from an accredited member of the British Water Cooler Association so you have the guarantees of safety and good practice as all members have to be rigorously audited.

Sip or glug?

What’s the best way to consume water throughout the day – to sip or glug down a glass a couple times a day?

Whichever you prefer. The rule of thumb is that you should aim for 1.8 – 2 litres of fluid a day for an average person in average temperatures. If your job role is very physical or the weather is particularly hot you may need more. How you consume you water is entirely up to you. Of course, you can drink other fluids too but if you want a drink that is delicious, convenient and calorie free, then water is a good choice.

Greenworks transfers its water cooler division to Angel Springs

BWCA Member, Angel Springs has announced that Greenworks Solutions has agreed to merge its water cooler division, Greenworks Water, into Angel Springs. Greenworks Water, has over 15,000 almost entirely mains fed water coolers.

Commenting on the transaction, Managing Director John Dundon said “we are delighted to have secured Greenworks Water; their DNA is very similar to that of Angel Springs with a strong focus on great customer service and a highly motivated, skilled and experienced workforce. This acquisition further increases our cooler base, and coupled with our continuing strong organic growth, we are excited to offer our services to a growing customer base”.

Managing Director of Greenworks Solutions Adam Warren commented “we are delighted to have found the right partner for Greenworks Water customers and staff.  In Angel Springs, we recognise a company that can continue our culture of great customer care plus, appreciate the skills and knowledge our staff will bring with them.

“Greenworks Solutions will continue with their other B2B services. However, it has become clearly evident to us that a coffee and water offering are very different business models, and in order to focus our skills and resources on coffee, we needed to find a good home for the water division, and Angel has provided this.”

In December 2014 Angel Springs was acquired by Funds managed by Castik Capital.
