Here at Bronte Water we take our social responsibility seriously and we’re passionate about keeping single-use plastic to the very minimum. As you may know we try our best to ensure that the materials (especially plastics) are recyclable and as environmentally friendly as possible. So, why is recycling so important to us?

One reason is because of the affects we humans are having on the environment! By recycling our Polycarbonate Bottles, Polypropylene Cups, Bottle Caps and as much of the actual Water Coolers as we can we’re ensuring that our footprint on the world is as small as possible.

Have you ever heard about The Ocean Gyre before? The current in the ocean accumulate all the rubbish, trash and garbage in the sea and naturally collects it to create multiple “Garbage Patches” which float on top or the ocean surface! The largest and most commonly known Ocean Gyre Garbage Patch is in the Pacific Ocean.

“In t­he broad expanse of the northern Pacific Ocean, there exists the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre, a slowly moving, clockwise spiral of currents created by a high-pressure system of air currents… It’s the largest landfill in the world, and it floats in the middle of the ocean.” – Jacob Silverman, How Stuff Works

You can find out more about how these massive plastic islands are formed and the dire affects they are having on the sea-life and the wider environment by simply Googling it: The Ocean Gyre and The Garbage Patch in the Pacific Ocean.

This is why we have water bottles which have an average life-span of 12 years and once cracked or beyond repair, they are recycled into products such as CDs and safety glass.

“We want to abolish single-use plastics and ensure that Bronte Water does it’s best to help keep the environment green” – Tim Saville, Bronte Water Coolers Ltd
