The average London adult buys more than three single use plastic water bottles every week - a startling 175 bottles every year. In total, some 7.7 billion plastic bottles are bought across the UK each year, resulting in substantial amounts of single-use plastic waste. (1)
Environmental protection and, above all, the avoidance of plastic waste have become a central focus in modern society. With carrier bags and single use plastic bottles making up a considerable part of the plastic waste across the world, it is no surprise that the pressure is on to change our ways. A levy on single use plastic carrier bags has seen demand fall considerably. Now we have the opportunity to do the same with single use bottles. Enjoying Magnesium Mineralized Water at home or in the office straight from your BWT cooler is potentially one less bottle you need to buy. Magnesium Mineralized Water can be enjoyed from a cup or a glass but is also perfect for topping up your sports bottle for when you are on the move. Say no to single use plastic bottles.
Water is also the elixir of life and a limited resource at the same time. Water is not always available in the quality in which it is actually required. Odour and taste-impairing substances from water pipes or residues in water from agricultural practices can affect the flavour.

Is the installation of a water dispenser difficult and cumbersome?
No. In principle, only two factors need to be considered:
In public buildings and offices all conditions are usually present. The AQA drink water dispensers are available as table-top or free-standing units. The table-top units are of the same size as commercially available fully automatic coffee machines and fit on any kitchen worktop.
The filter and the CO2 bottle can be placed in any base cabinet. For the installation only a small hole has to be drilled into the worktop to pass through the connecting hoses. If you don't want to place it on the worktop or if you don't have the space, the solution offers itself as a stand-alone unit. The table-top unit is placed on a base cabinet, which also provides space for the filter and the CO2 bottle."
