OVER 55 MILLION
And counting…That’s the number of plastic water bottles FloWater has saved to date from entering landfills since the inception of the company! But we’re not slowing down or stopping there…
1 Billion or Bust!
We’re on a mission to save 1 BILLION plastic bottles from landfills by 2022! According to recent studies, Americans used about 50 billion plastic water bottles last year. In the U.S., the recycling rate for plastic is only 23 percent, which means that 38 billion water bottles end up in landfills, oceans and waterways each year.
More Plastic Than Fish?
At our current rate of plastic consumption, there is said to be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050. We are saying #FCUKplastic, and are working to crush that prediction! Help us keep our oceans fishy and #DitchDispoables.
Take the #PlasticPledge at Eat Drink SF
For the 5th consecutive year, FloWater is hydrating palates during the premier food, and wine festival in San Francisco! This event celebrates the Bay Area’s world-class chefs and restaurants. Visit FloWater’s water bars in the general admission space as well as VIP lounge at this year’s Eat Drink San Francisco and take the Plastic Pledge. But what is the plastic pledge and why does it matter? First, it was plastic bag bans, now straws, and next are plastic water bottles. There’s a new wave coming, and that’s what this #plasticpledge is all about.
It’s about challenging yourself to consciously make the decision to eliminate plastic bottles and products from your daily routine! By drinking FloWater you’re taking one step (even if small!) to sacrifice the convenience of a plastic water bottle to help the health of our planet.
We will be giving away prizes all weekend long for those who take the #PlasticPledge and say #FCUKplastic. It’s simple. It’s fun. And it’s proving a point to yourself and those around you that you are willing to take action on the plastic problem.
“I will make conscious decisions in everything I consume: reducing first, reusing wherever possible and recycling when necessary.”
