This week, G.L. Caissie is proud to join main retailers and companies all across Canada in celebrating Waste Reduction Week in Canada. Waste Reduction Week in Canada is actually a year long program that focuses on principles of circular economy, resource efficiency, and waste reduction, and how to implement these things here at home in Canada. Each day of Waste Reduction Week Canada has a theme, and today’s theme is Plastics.
Did you know that worldwide, 2.7 million tons of plastic are used to bottle water? And 86% of plastic water bottles in the USA become garbage, or litter?
Those are some staggering and scary numbers, and might make you wonder what you can do to help, and what alternatives you have.
One alternative is a whole home water treatment system. Treated water helps your water heater run more efficiently, reducing energy bills. It’s also easier on your pipes, plumbing fixtures and your water-related appliances resulting in fewer repairs and related costs. The longer your appliances last, the less of them end up in landfills!
Additionally, treated water requires less detergent to wash clothes and dishes. It also saves on the amount of shampoo and conditioners you use. And installing a drinking water system is much more economical than purchasing bottled water for your home.
Here at G.L. Caissie, we have a number of water filtration and drinking water solutions available to meet the needs of you and your family. Give us a call or come by the store so we can discuss what would work best for you!
