Often it’s the way businesses operate that makes a real difference to the environment.
Water coolers offer a great way to enjoy healthy hydration with an excellent record of recycling bottles. When the water is sourced and delivered locally, the environmental impacts are minimal. That’s just what happens with BWCA Member company Swithland Spring Water.
They consider themselves to have a low carbon footprint as the water is bottled less than 25 metres from the borehole and, once bottled and tested, the bottled are delivered in the main to customers within a 50 mile radius. In common with other BWCA Members, the old bottles are recycled – usually after more than 40 uses.
The company also runs an active Corporate Social Responsibility programme, sponsoring several local charities and donating water to a number of fundraising events. These include: Intercare Medical Aid for Africa, Rainbows Walk for Life, Seagrave Wolds Challenge, Swithland 6, Rothley 10K run, Menpys sponsored walk, Vasculitis UK, the Air Ambulance Service and The Dogs Trust.
