2021 has been dubbed ‘the year of the package’ [Forbes, January 2021] with a huge number of global brands pledging to overhaul their packaging and recycling operations for environmental gain.
We at Zip Water are no different. Sustainable credentials have always been high on our priority list, which is why we wanted to make sure you know about our CO2 canister recycling scheme.
Simply follow the steps below to return empty canisters for free:
- Visit royalmail.com/track-my-return/create/3452
- Create your returns label
- Add label to parcel
- Take parcel to your nearest Post Office
These canisters enable our drinking water systems to dispense chilled, sparkling water. Both our HydroTap and HydroChill ranges promote ‘refill culture’ which is estimated to save 340million plastic bottles a year in the UK (based on just 1 in 10 Brits refilling once a week) [Water.org, September 2018].
That in itself provides great benefit for the environment but we hope in reminding customers about the canister recycling scheme we can continue to make further positive change.
Recycling not only helps to conserve natural resources but it saves energy and reduces emissions. Recycling metals means less need for risky and expensive mining of new materials, which in turn helps to protect valuable ecosystems and wildlife.
