Beat plastic pollution with this filtered water tap

Published:  05 June, 2018

To celebrate World Environment Day, InSinkErator® is encouraging the use of re-fillable drinking bottles instead of plastic ones.

This year’s World Environment Day theme is ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’, encouraging change with the message, ‘if you can't re-use it, refuse it’.

The InSinkErator® 4N1 Touch tap can help businesses reduce their plastic waste – providing instant, filtered, cold water at the touch of a button. This means there is no need to buy bottled water or have bottled water machines on your site.

Research conducted by the United Nations found that plastic drinking bottles are the second most common single-use plastic found in the environment. The study showed plastic drinking bottles, along with food wrappers, plastic straws and take-away containers, are products of a throwaway culture where plastic is treated as a disposable material, rather than a valuable resource.

Anne Kaarlela, Marketing Communications Manager for InSinkErator® Europe and Russia, said: “With one million plastic bottles being bought every minute, World Environment Day is so important to increase the awareness of what is happening to the world we live in and how we can make a change.

“InSinkErator® 4N1 Touch taps offer consumers an alternative to buying an endless number of single-use, plastic bottled water as the 4N1 provides filtered cold water at the touch of a button. At InSinkErator®, we will continue to offer affordable solutions to consumers that reduce the strain on landfill sites, limiting the damage to the environment.”
