London’s Environmentally Friendly Water Company
Living-Water is working hard with Carbon Digest to become carbon free. Sustainability really matters to us and how we assess our carbon footprint is calculated by looking at all areas of our business:
Cutting Power Consumption
We have implemented strict new policies: all lights, air conditioning and computers must be switched off in our call centre, warehouse and bottling plant at all times outside of office hours. All walls are to be painted white to reflect natural light and reduce unnecessary electricity usage. Staff are prevented from access to printing (wonderful additional cost savings as well!) and all printer cartridges are to be recycled. To ensure we meet these guidelines we have implemented a strict system of internal staff fines with all monies going to our dedicated office water charity.
Reuseable Spring Water Bottles
Yearly an estimated 50 000 tonnes of plastic bottles end up in land refill dumps. We only buy the very best bottles so we can re-clean them up to 50 times. Subsequently all bottles are sent for recycling at the end of their working life and do not litter land refill sites.
Since 2008 we have planted through Carbon Digest a new tree for every additional cooler supplied –and since 2009 Living-Water has been a carbon neutral company.
