WATER IT’S LIKE MARMITE!
Aquapoint operates in an industry that at times finds itself an easy target for the propagator’s of doom and gloom. Bottled water is no better than tap water we are told. Why buy bottles when you can drink straight from the tap and if you don’t like the taste of your tap water buy a carbon filter oh and by the way bottled water is bad for the environment.
Bad news is good news as far as the media and some bloggers are concerned. On far too many occasions poorly researched information is thrown into the public domain for quick consumption with no opportunity provided for any measured response. At varying times the watercooler industry finds itself demonised and admonished for the services it provides, whilst no thought or consideration is given to the jobs it creates and the livelihoods it supports around the world.
AquaPoint is not a supplier of small packaged water that can be found on the supermarket shelf and supply 18.5 litre bottles predominantly for commercial customers who are looking for a suitable solution to providing both their employees and visitors with refreshing drinks. They are committed to ensuring that their workforce can keep properly hydrated throughout the day and benefit from drinking chilled water. It is often forgotten that whilst tap water may well be of a suitable quality it is not chilled, just think about how much water is wasted in running the tap to get a cold drink of water?
If our customers feel that bottles are not the best option then the alternatives such as mains connected (complete with carbon filter) or boxed water provide cost effective solutions for their businesses. As for being bad for the environment it seems everything that is manufactured or produced has a detrimental effect and like all industries we are continually working hard to reduce our carbon footprint.
Our service isn’t for everyone but that doesn’t make it irrelevant or bad. Perhaps it’s like Marmite – you either love it or hate it.
- What is really happening out in the business world?
Like many business people we’ve had our fill of negative this, negative that, double dip this and reverse trend that. All “sound bites” used by the media to deliver a message they want to convey, bad news is good news. Apparently it sells papers, fills air time and provokes discussion amongst the carefully invited panel! [...]
- WATER: THE HEALTHIEST BEVERAGE FOR HYDRATION
You will probably have noticed that here at AquaPoint our news/blogs are fairly lighthearted. However on a more serious note we are always keen to remind people of the benefits of looking after themselves by keeping the body well hydrated. The new year may have seen you take up or renew a gym membership and whilst pounding [...]
