12 2015 New Year s Resolution Ditch the Bottle! Top 10 Reasons to Switch to Pure Water Technology 1. Ditch the bottles Stop polluting our planet! Bottled water companies burn millions of barrels of oil and generate millions of tons of greenhouse gasses in the manufacturing, processing, and transporting of their products. Additionally, there is an estimated 38 billion nonbiodegradable plastic water bottles tossed into our landfills annually. 2. Save money Eliminate cost increases as water consumption rises No bottle deposits, delivery charges, or fuel surcharges. Stabilize costs with our 60 month price guarantee. 3. Be more efficient With Pure Water Technology there is one invoice so no packing slips or monthly statements for employees to reconcile. No wasted storage space for full or empty bottles. 4. Convenience There will be no more running out of water, and you ll provide hot and cold oxygenated water at the touch of a button. 5. Be safer No more lifting 40 lb. water bottles reduce worker s compensation risks. 6. Go Green Because the Pure Water Technology system simply connects to an existing water supply, our systems do not drain the environment. 7. Appreciate employees/customers Virtually all employees and customers agree they appreciate cool, crystal-clear purified drinking water. 8. Be healthier Pure, quality water is essential to maintaining a healthy body and proper hydration is essential to optimal physical performance. 9. Eliminate bacteria Five-gallon bottled water coolers are open systems, exposed to all kinds of airborne contaminants, and everything that comes into contact with the bottle ends up in your drinking water. 10. Reduce impurities and illness Eliminate airborne contamination common in bottled water coolers. Pat Brogan eojohnson.com
