Quench, an independent provider of filtered water coolers in North America, has partnered with Verus Carbon Neutral to completely offset the carbon footprint produced by its vehicle fleet.
Quench has partnered with Verus Carbon Neutral to completely offset the carbon footprint produced by its vehicle fleet. Quench systems purify tap water, providing a more cost-effective and solution than delivering water in 5-gallon plastic jugs.
Quench has already demonstrated its commitment to reducing waste through such efforts as recycling used filters and ultraviolet bulbs as well as through water and energy conservation in its supply chain.
Todd Peterson, COO of Quench, said: “Given Quench’s dedication to green initiatives, offsetting our carbon footprint by supporting reforestation was a natural step.”
Andrew Keenan, chief marketing officer of Verus Carbon Neutral, said: "We are thrilled to partner with Quench. Quench not only offsets its own carbon emissions, but Quench’s water filtration systems also reduce the carbon footprints of their customers.”
Since its founding, Quench’s elimination of bottled water coolers has had the same impact on greenhouse gas reduction as planting 4 million trees. In just one year, Quench’s water filtration systems save enough fuel to drive a bottled water delivery truck around the world 25 times.
