What is one way that Las Vegas’s favorite beverage – water – and the 3 R’s of recycling – reduce, reuse and recycle can be connected? The answer is Bevi, the “Eco-friendly, many flavored, healthy water cooler that never runs out.” It can help with reducing and reusing as well as provide you with a delicious beverage.
What exactly is a Bevi you ask? Bevi is a free-standing water cooler designed for the office or break room that allows everyone to fill their own water bottle or glass with filtered, flat or carbonated, and flavored or plain water. It’s your choice.
Reduce and Reuse
So, how does Bevi help Las Vegas consumers with reducing and reusing? Using Bevi can help reduce the carbon footprint by reducing the number of plastic bottles that are manufactured and by dramatically decreasing the amount of energy needed for transporting filled beverage bottles. Out of the 50 million barrels of oil that are used worldwide to make plastic bottles, the U.S uses 17 million of them. By asking users to reuse their own bottles, Bevi uses zero barrels of oil.
The Bevi machine also helps reduce the amount of water wasted during the manufacturing process. For every single bottle of water that is manufactured, three bottles worth of water are wasted. Lastly, Bevi helps to reduce the number of bottles that end up in the landfill. Each year 41 billion bottles end up in a landfill in the U.S. Using one Bevi machine can eliminate approximately 35,000 of those bottles.
Bevi is great for the humans that use it too. The activated carbon filtration system provides pure, great-tasting water by removing sediment, chemicals, pesticides and the byproducts of chlorination. It’s now up to Las Vegas employees to determine what type of water they’d like—flat or carbonated and with or without added flavors. The flavors available include a wide range of choices including unsweetened Peach, unsweetened Lemon, unsweetened Cucumber, naturally sweetened Orange Mango, naturally sweetened Blackberry Lime and more.
But those who consume the water aren’t the only ones that a Bevi can help. The Bevi machine comes with an internet connection and proactive monitoring. Facility or office managers don’t need to monitor flavor usage or filter status. Bevi does that for you, and lets us, your refreshment service provider, know when we need to make a flavor delivery or change a filter. Of course, you can always contact us if you would like to try a new flavor or change one out.
In addition to creating a greener workplace and reducing waste in Las Vegas, the Bevi is a unique office perk to offer your employees. Not only does using Bevi encourage the healthy habit of drinking more water and consuming low-sugar beverages, but employees are more likely to take a stress-reducing break while getting that beverage.
Creating an environment that helps employees focus on healthy habits and stress reduction can both positively influence employee health and increase office productivity. While some organizations choose to offer nap rooms, game rooms, or gym memberships, don’t forget to add free food and beverage services to your list of office perks. Top off your micro-market or free vend break room with a Bevi, and you’re on your way to creating an inviting and stress-reducing space.
