Green Earth Awards for water filter recycling

WaterCare Recycling is giving out ‘Green Earth Awards’ to customers who return over a certain amount of water filters, either WaterCare’s or 3rdParty.

The first award was given to Qualitasse, which returned 370 filters and equated to 3,680kg of plastic being recycling and equivalent to 11 million plastic cups (based on a 3g cup) or 22 tonnes of CO2.

WaterCare says the scheme offers it and its clients the opportunity to deliver a strong and transparent message that they are passionately committed to reducing plastic waste throughout the industry.

In the last 6 months, WaterCare recycled enough 3rd party filters to save 62.7 Tonnes of CO2 – that is equivalent to 31.3 million plastic cups.
