Workplace hydration

The war against plastic: who’s battle is it?

72% of respondents say their employer could do more to reduce single-use plastics in the workplace.

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.

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.

Staying hydrated and its impact on productivity

Our bodies are 55-60% water and we cannot survive without constantly maintaining these levels.

Hydration has a powerful effect on employee health, well-being and productivity. Three-quarters of the employees said that staying hydrated is important to them. Acting on this and improving access to water facilities could make a big difference to business. Not only do people see good quality water as having a positive impact on wellbeing, it’s also a simple way to meet the needs of staff.
