The Benefits of Reusable Water Cooler Bottles

The Benefits of Reusable Water Cooler Bottles

Recycling and sustainability are all the rage, and for good reason – we all need to do our part to protect the environment and reduce our contributions to landfill. One simple yet effective way to reduce waste is to reuse water bottles where possible. Another option is to recycle plastic drink bottles, either in your recycling or through the Containers for Change refund scheme in Queensland.

One of the clear benefits of reusing water cooler bottles is the reduction in plastic waste. Improperly discarded single-use plastics contribute to landfill and ocean pollution – something we are passionate about minimising. Our beautiful, fresh natural spring water comes from the foothills of Cairns, and we don’t want to harm the environment that has given us this precious gift! So when we deliver water cooler bottles to your home or business, we take away your empties and return them to our facilities, where they are thoroughly sanitised before being refilled with natural spring water and sent out for delivery once more.

Another benefit of reusing water cooler bottles is that it is cost-effective. By using our water cooler bottles over and over, we are saving on the cost of purchasing more – and we are able to pass those savings on to our customers, who can enjoy fresh natural spring water in their home or business for less.

So how can we reduce the environmental impacts of plastic drink bottles? At Cairns Natural Spring Water, our 600ml and 1.5L water bottles are not only made from pre-formed moulds onsite, reducing the emissions of road travel to truck them to Cairns, but they are also recyclable.

According to UK organisation Recycling Bins, using recycled plastic reduces the need for raw materials that draw on the earth’s resources, and also takes 75% less energy than creating new plastic.

One of the best ways for you to get the most out of your recycling is to bring your Cairns Natural Spring Water bottles and other eligible containers to a Containers for Change refund point and earn back 10 cents per container. In doing this, you not only do your part for the environment by reducing plastic waste and contributing to recycling, but you also get a little bit of money back in your pocket – and every little bit helps!

Another surprising benefit of our plastic water bottles is that their production is more sustainable than the alternatives out there. Although improperly discarded plastic waste contributes to landfill and marine pollution, when recycled and reused, plastic water bottles have fewer negative impacts on the environment than aluminium cans and water bottles. Water in aluminium cans is not as sustainable as it would seem – the carbon emissions from producing one aluminium can are approximately double those emitted when producing a plastic water bottle.

When plastic is recycled, it remains the best and cleanest solution for water bottles. So if you are all about recycling and sustainable practices, rest assured that Cairns Natural Spring Water is right there with you, from our reusable water cooler bottles to our recyclable water bottles.
