We know between two and three billion people worldwide experience water shortages—and these shortages will only intensify in the coming years. Technology can help reduce the amount of waste. Let’s take a look at one example.
In New Jersey, the Camden City School District’s kitchen and cafeterias have installed Document Solutions Business Life Simplified touchless water coolers and reverse osmosis systems. The systems were funded by the AWCF (American Water Charitable Foundation) and New Jersey American Water as part of an effort to improve students’ access to water for drinking and reduce the usage of bottled water.
Here is how this can help in schools:
- Improve students’ access to water for drinking, while reducing the usage of bottled water.
- Safer and more hygienic solution to traditional water dispensers, as users can access water without touching the dispenser.
- Reverse osmosis systems offer clean and pure water that’s free from contaminants, which uses a semi-permeable membrane to remove impurities, resulting in clean and safe drinking water.
- Activated oxygen self-cleaning system ensures that our water coolers are always clean and fresh, which uses activated oxygen to sanitize the dispenser, eliminating any bacteria or viruses that may be present.
All in all, eco-friendly systems can help reduce carbon footprint, eliminating the need for plastic bottles, which is ultimately leading to a more sustainable world. Looking to the future, we will see more solutions aimed at helping to reduce water waste, while also improving sustainability and providing clean, fresh water for as many people as possible.
