Putting Eden water’s carbon footprint into perspective
Eden Springs, as a low carbon company and the first accredited carbon neutral water cooler company in the UK, are committed to reducing the environmental impact of what we do. However it’s important to know how our products perform in relation to other hydration options and popular products. Thanks to our stringent auditing and research process undertaken as part of our journey to become carbon neutral we know exactly what carbon footprint a glass of our water has.
The Carbon footprint of a product is the total greenhouse gases (GHG) emitted, directly or indirectly, during the extraction, production, distribution and consumption of the product. We can see that a glass of Eden water has a carbon footprint of about 1/6 of that of a glass of orange juice, and almost half that of a cup of tea.
