TAMPA, Fla., April 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- On April 22, AquaVenture (NYSE: WAAS) will join in the celebration of Earth Day.
"Through both Quench and Seven Seas Water, AquaVenture is focused on utilizing our expertise in the water industry to deliver sustainable and environmentally friendly water solutions for a healthier and greener Earth," stated Doug Brown, CEO of AquaVenture.
Quench's mission is to deliver the best water filtration systems for businesses in a sustainable, environmentally friendly, and cost-efficient way. On Earth Day and every other day of the year, Quench underscores our commitment to clean, eco-friendly and bottle-free water solutions. We estimate that, in 2016 alone, Quench bottleless or point-of-use (POU) water coolers kept more than 22 million 5-gallon plastic jugs from entering the waste stream. According to the Environmental Capital Group, the bottled water cooler (BWC) business consumes 140 million kilowatt hours of electricity, wastes 2.7 billion gallons of water, burns close to 6 million gallons of fuel, and dumps more than 35,000 tons of waste into landfills each year. Quench's POU water cooler systems save energy and water, reduce dependence on petroleum, and help reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. No plastic bottles. No water deliveries. No wasted energy. No landfill waste.
