Something that we can all agree on is the fact that a happy, comfortable workplace is a productive, enthusiastic workplace, so if you are in the position of being able to make decisions about changes and decisions in your own work setting, then you might want to consider the installing of a water filling station for everybody to use.

It might not seem like a grand luxury compared to some other, more flashy renovations that could be made, but believe us when we say that having access to safe, free, satisfying water is something that should not be taken for granted by bosses and employees alike. With this in mind, here are some of the best reasons to install a water-filling station in your company.

It Is Good For Employees Health

Did you know that a recent study showed that an average of 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated without even realizing it? A lack of hydration leads to things like loss of focus and attention span, which of course will have a negative impact on somebody’s work output. Giving employees access to drinking water where they work is a vital element in improving their health and improving their work as a result.

It Reduces Plastic And Water Waste

When there is no filling station available, workers will often resort to picking up a new plastic bottle of water every single day. Two problems can arise from this, the first being that they will sometimes throw away the bottle before they have even finished the water, and the second is that they are adding to the already too large problem of single-use plastic which is one of the biggest environmental issues the world is facing right now. The simple addition of a water station at work can eliminate those two problems in a single decision!

Easy To Maintain

Maintenance of a water filling station is super simple, especially when you are in partnership with a cleaning company that includes collecting large containers as part of their service. The cleanliness of the station, while it is being used, should be more or less a communal task shared among workers, with all that is required being wiping of splashes and clearing up of cups!

Saves Time And Money

Having free access to drinking water in the workplace will save time and money in the sense that employees won’t be forced to run out to spend cash on things like bottled drinks and coffee. Good for their wallet and even better for the company deadlines when workers aren’t leaving the office!

If you would like to experience all of the abovementioned benefits of a water filling station in your own workplace, then you will find all of the relevant information that you need to get the ball rolling on the Urban Oasis website. Get in touch with one of our experienced team members and they will be more than happy to answer any questions about the process that you might have. We look forward to being of assistance!

You don’t have to be a leading expert in the field to understand that the entire world is currently facing a huge environmental crisis, arguably the biggest environmental crisis that our civilization has ever faced. The thought of this can be very overwhelming for a single individual. You might easily think that the dangers and threats we are faced with are too large for any one person to deal with or make any impact, but if you start to break things down into singular tasks and decisions that we can all make in our lives, it can start to feel a little bit more manageable.  Take a water filling station, for example, we are all familiar with them, but have you considered using one as your own contribution to the ongoing environmental battle? Here is some key information about how you can help the environmental crisis with a water-filling station.

It Reduces Single Use Plastic

Without a doubt, the biggest benefit of using a water filling station is that it reduces the use of single-use plastic bottles that are accumulated over the course of a day/week/month/year. Rather than going to a shop and buying a brand new plastic bottled beverage to take to work every day, you can instead invest in a long-lasting reusable bottle and then have the water-filling station be your primary source of hydration throughout the day. This immediately cuts down on the impact that you are having on your own choices.

Less Plastic = Less Pollution

In reducing the amount of plastic that you are personally adding to the world, you are making a direct contribution to trying to improve the situation. A water filling station allows you to feel much better about the direct part that you are playing in introducing new plastic waste to landfill and the oceans. Did you know that less than half of the plastic bottles that are used every single day are able to be 100% recycled? This leaves a huge percentage and amount of plastic with nowhere productive or safe to go.

Water Filling StationHelps You To Be Healthier

And lastly, from a personal point of view, a change in habits from buying plastic bottles of soda every day to switching to healthy drinking water can have a huge impact on your own health whilst you are doing something to improve the health of the planet! We call it a win-win situation for everybody involved in the equation. Less plastic for the earth to deal with, and fewer unhealthy additives and ingredients for your body to deal with!

If you think that you can change your habits to include a water filling station, we recommend you browse the Urban Oasis website where you will find all of the information and answers that you need in order to make the best decisions. It’s a huge battle that we are facing, but one small change in everybody’s life at a time can add up to a huge difference in the end!

If you are worried about the quality of your tap water, there’s another way to have clean water on tap. Here at Urban Oasis, we have 24/7 water filling stations. You can get it delivered in quantities to your home or office, but sometimes because of greater use, you may find that you have run out.  This invariably happens at the most inconvenient times, such as out of business hours or the middle of the night. You never know when you may need extra drinking water or just suddenly run out. If you buy your water from Urban Oasis, then you can just go to a water filling station and obtain as much as you need, any time that you want. These dispensers can fill volumes of between 1-5 gallons at a time. Our vending machines take both credit cards and cash for your convenience.

Water vending machines are used by the general public at all times during the day or night. Because of this constant use, it raises questions about cleanliness and public health. The state of California imposes the rule that operators of these vending points have to keep them in a clean condition and that they should be sanitized at least once per month. We go one better and clean each water filling station once per week. The point of delivery is cleaned from the inside to outside, which includes trays, drains, and nozzles. Buttons and levers on the outside are next. The machine itself is tested for correct operation and the quality of the water is also tested. Our aim is to make sure our vending points always have the highest level of cleanliness and safety.

Healthwise

Health authorities state that each person should drink at least two liters of water every day because severe dehydration can cause damage to the brain and interfere with a person’s cognitive abilities. They don’t state that the water has to be purified, but pure water can guard your health because it is completely free of contaminants such as bacteria, microbes, and chemical substances. Here are some of the benefits of drinking water.

  • Water detoxifies by flushing out any contaminants that are in your body.
  • Your bowels and intestines are washed out by drinking it.
  • Water carries oxygen to all parts of your body.
  • Drinking plenty of water will wash out your kidneys, which is important for your health.
  • It is good for muscles and joints.
  • People who drink sufficient water find that their energy levels increase.
  • Replacing artificially sweetened drinks with water will help with weight loss.
  • Other benefits are healthier hair and scalp.
  • Plus drinking water helps promote healthy and glowing skin.

Choice

Another good about going to a water filling station, one of our retail shops, or getting it delivered is that you have some choice. You can choose how you get your water, how it is dispensed, and which type, purified or alkaline, you prefer.
