We've Got the Bottle

Today Venn Group becomes a single-use plastic water bottle free zone, by providing all employees with refillable bottles. The introduction of this initiative is part of a programme we will be implementing this month to improve our environmental credentials and continue our support of the refill campaign.
So why have we ensured everyone at Venn Group has a refillable water bottle?
Reduce circulation at source -The average person in the UK will use 150 plastic water bottles every year. If just one in ten Brits refilled once a week, we’d have 340 million less plastic bottles a year in circulation.
Clean up - An appalling 700,000 plastic bottles are littered every single day in the UK. Many of these are making their way into our oceans. Plastic bottles now make up one-third of all plastic pollution in the sea and there are over 159 plastic bottles for every mile of beach in the UK.
Save money - Refilling your reusable bottle is an easy way to save money, because bottled water costs between 500-1000 times more than water from the tap!
Water quality - In the UK, we’re lucky to have some of the highest quality drinking water in the world and all our offices have a filter cooling system. Yummy refreshing stuff!
We think these are pretty good reasons to start refilling. When you are visiting our offices please ask us to refill your water bottle.
