Arbury do their bit for the environment with branded water bottles
At Arbury, not only do we care about the well-being of our employees, but we also care about the environment. For this reason we have supplied each of our 270 team members with their very own #TeamArbury reusable water bottle.
In the UK alone, it’s estimated that we use around 38.5 million plastic bottles every day, yet it’s reported that 15 million of these are not recycled. And when you take into account that a full 32% of the 78 million tons of plastic packaging that’s produced each year is left to flow into our oceans, it only further supports that by 2050, it could mean that there will be more plastic in the world’s ocean than there will be fish!
The production of plastic bottles also uses up more oil than you may think – to produce one year’s supply of bottled water alone, it takes 17 million barrels of oil! Hypothetically, this is enough oil to power 190,000 homes for a year – crazy, isn’t it?
It’s also been proven that drinking the recommended amount of water can have a phenomenal impact on not only your well-being, but also your productivity. In a study conducted by the University of East London in 2013, it showed that drinking water can result in an amazing 14% increase in productivity! And simply by carrying a refillable water bottle it means you’re more likely to drink the recommended one to two litres of fluid per day!
We’re extremely proud to continue supporting our employees’ well-being and to also do our bit to reduce the amount of plastic used to help lessen the impact we’re having on the environment!
