Over the course of the past decade, we’ve seen these phrases below posted all over social media.  But what does it all mean? Why do we care this much about single-use plastic? What difference does it make to a business to switch from bottled water to a bottleless water cooler?

The water you consume daily with your colleagues at work may seem like a small part of the office experience.  However, the ways in which you choose to hydrate your employees can make a huge difference on not just your carbon footprint, but also your income sheets.

How can this be? Hydr8 has the answer!

Below, we outline the top 8 reasons why bottleless water coolers are the best water solution for your office.

1. Water Quality

Let’s start with the most important aspect – the water. Today’s bottleless water coolers contain numerous modern, hi-tech filters that are not just cleaning and purifying the water, but also enriching it with essential minerals such as calcium, potassium, and sodium. The quality of the water you are drinking is better and benefits the overall health of your employees.  Healthy employees=productive employees.

2. Constant Supply

One of the biggest advantages of bottleless water coolers is their continuous supply of water. It doesn’t matter what season it is. It doesn’t matter if your office suddenly was chosen to host the annual forum. No matter how high the demand for water is, bottleless water systems are able to supply hydration at any moment.

3. Fewer Liabilities

There are several lawsuits on file for injuries at work related to lifting 45 pound jugs. That’s an inconvenient and unnecessary insurance claim for your business. If you avoid the use of plastic water jugs, you eliminate another potential cost to your company.

4. Space is an Expense

The average cost per square foot in NYC is $65.  The average bottle takes up one square foot. How many bottled jugs do you have?

5. Time is Money

Each employee collects a salary; part-time employees are often tasked with ordering, changing, and dealing with cooler-related issues.  This takes time out of the work day, and therefore wastes company money. A bottleless system keeps your employees hydrated and productive.

6. Environmentally Responsibility

If you’ve turned on the news or scrolled through social media at least once throughout the past year, people have realized the importance of keeping our planet green. According to recent studies, only 10% of ‘recycled’ plastic is actually being recycled. Why let this happen if we can protect our oceans, our forests, and the animals that live there?

7. Green Companies Perform Better

People are more likely to invest in a company that’s aiming to reduce their carbon footprint. It’s not just appealing to the public eye, but also one less expense to worry about. A company that’s looking to improve themselves and is directed toward the future always looks better to investors.

8. Plastic Contaminants

It’s been proven that exposure of plastic to the sun for extended periods of time can cause increased levels of BPA and antimony.  Why risk exposing your body to such harmful contaminants? No need to with a bottleless system in your office building.

Embrace the Future

Bottleless water coolers are the future of office hydration.  Don’t let old habits keep you stuck in the past. Keep your employees hydrated with the best quality you can find! Contact us for more information on how you can make the difference in your office.
