Sustainable Water at Zero KM

In Italy, as in other European countries, the quality of mains water is regulated by special laws.

These guarantee water potability, making it safe and suitable for human consumption.

Despite this, many still choose bottled water, which before reaching the shelves of supermarkets must be bottled and obviously transported.

One liter of bottled water has hidden cost behind it. If we take in consideration the packaging, the delivery and 1 liter of water, the real cost is: 5 liters of water, 320 grams of petrol and 80 grams of carbon.
This cost harmful emissions and dispersion of plastic materials in the environment.

This consumption habit is not particularly justified from an ecological and a practical point of view. Just think about the weight, size of the baskets and the quantity of plastic.

But it could in part be explained by the organoleptic qualities of the water supplied by the aqueduct. Mains water is treated upstream of the supply network in order to reach our tap safe and drinkable, however traces of this process still remain perceptible to the taste, in most cases is caused by chlorine.

In summary: tap water is safe but not pleasant.

GWS Industries dispensers were created with the aim of promoting a sustainable style of water consumption, without forcing the end user to deprive himself of the pleasure of drinking without unpleasant aftertastes.
In fact, our dispensers operate with a direct connection to the water mains, improving the organoleptic qualities of the water to ensure quality and safety directly from the tap or from the dispenser itself.
