In a bid to better understand the effects of hydration and single-use plastic usage in the workplace Waterlogic surveyed 6,300 full-time workers across Europe, Australia and America. Learn more about what we discovered to help promote healthier habits for a more productive workforce.
Mains-fed water dispensers are a more sustainable and convenient choice compared to bottled water coolers. Collaborating with staff on a strategy to reduce plastic waste can help to ensure positive engagement and maximise the impact of any actions taken. This survey showed that if your tap water has a bad taste or smell this can discourage workers from using the facility, and that there is clear demand for filtered water within workplaces.
66% of employees use single-use plastics when there is no access to a dispenser
31% of companies actually provide single-use plastic bottles for their employees
52% of employees are already using their own refillable bottles in the workplace
A ‘Reefill‘ society, become part of the solution
52% of employees are already taking on responsibility by using their own refillable bottles in the workplace.
Providing refillable bottles for staff is one way that employers can reduce their impact. Yet in 2019, only 23% of companies provided their staff with refillable bottles. Another way is providing public access to free, high-quality hydration, supporting a healthy lifestyle and reducing the reliance on single-use plastic water bottles. That’s why many Waterlogic customers have signed up to become part of the ‘Reefill’ community.
