Earth Overshoot Day 2017

Plastic bottled water contributes to humanity’s outstripping of natural resources. Reduce your environmental impact and avoid plastic bottle pollution by switching to Pure H2O.

Humankind began consuming more natural resources than the Earth is capable of regenerating back in the early 1970s. The day on which this happens is known as Earth Overshoot Day (previously Ecological Debt Day).

By the 1990s, Overshoot Day was reached in December. By the year 2000, 1 November. This year, 2017, we outstripped Earth’s natural resource capacity earlier than ever before: 2nd August.

We are depleting natural resources at an alarming rate and bottled water is contributing to this problem.

Plastic bottles require a massive amount of natural resources to manufacture, they take many food miles to distribute and, once discarded, pollute waterways. We have reached a crisis point; the Mayor of London describes Londoner’s use of bottled water as “out of control”.

Reducing the use of plastics is one key way to reduce your impact on the environment.

We understand that many people buy plastic bottled water because they feel it tastes better than tap water, because they feel it is healthier or they find it convenient.

We have the answer. Our under-sink tap water purifiers answer all these needs and remove the need to buy plastic bottled water again, by delivering unlimited pure water on tap in your home.

Pure H2O delivers three key benefits:

  1. Tastes amazing, just as nature intended
  2. Healthy and free from the impurities and contaminants found in tap water
  3. Environmentally friendly, avoids plastic bottles completely

For hydration on the go, simply fill up a plastic-free re-usable water bottle from the PureH2O faucet installed with your purifier and take it with you when you go out for the day.

Of course, many people buy bottled water because they enjoy drinking sparkling water.

If you prefer chilled or sparkling water, you can enjoy that more conveniently than ever before by combining a purifier with our new Quatreau SmartTap™ drinks station which gives chilled, sparkling and / or ambient water at the touch of a button. Or  Quatreau Touch, our touchscreen tap that installs over your kitchen sink for boiling, chilled and sparkling water, hand and dish washing.

So, there’s really no need to ever buy plastic bottled water again.

We take steps to reduce the environmental impact of producing our taps, too by manufacturing them within 10 miles of our base in Surrey using solid 316 stainless steel for lower environmental impact compared to plating. And with energy efficiency in mind, the boiling function of Quatreau Touch uses 33% less energy than other hot water taps.
