As a nation we Brits tend to take water for granted.  Yet even here the effects of climate change are more than obvious. Winter floods are becoming the norm, followed by Summer droughts and hosepipe bans.

Worldwide our planet is crying out for more water and as a consequence water resources are in high demand.  It is up to us to decrease our daily water consumption and get water wise!  At Suzanne James we strongly advocate the use of tap water rather than bottled water at all our events for a number of reasons;

FACT…bottled water produces up to 1.5 million tons of plastic waste per year

FACT…3 litres of water is needed to produce the packaging for 1 litre of water

FACT….bottles used to package water take over 1,000 years to bio-degrade

FACT….more than 22 million tons of bottled water is shipped between countries each year, that’s enough to generate electricity in 250,000 homes.

Should clients request bottled water we use two approved companies whose ethos matches our own:

FRANK Water – A small Bristol based company who sell ethical bottled water and use the profits to fund new clean water facilities in developing countries. Every litre purchased provides over 200 litres of safe drinking water for villagers in developing countries, this is equivalent to four months of safe, clean water for one child.

Hildon Water – Based in Hampshire, the water is naturally filtered and bottled at source. The company have a strong environmental policy in place  and is commited to supporting their local community, and many additional environmental projects locally.
