Environmental Benefits of Soda Fountains

No more soda bottles or cans! Instead of hauling soda cans and bottles every week to your home, you can enjoy several months of fountain soda without polluting the environment with plastic bottles and aluminum cans. Read on to find out more about the environmental benefits of soda fountains.

Our soda fountain systems use regular tap water, making traditional store-bought beverage bottles obsolete. That means less plastic manufactured, less plastic waste is created, and fewer bottled beverages must be transported from manufacturers to distributors to stores to homes.

According to the US Recycling Institute, more than 80% of bottles in the US do not get recycled and end up in landfills. Also, an estimated 4.7 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions were produced in the process of replacing the 134 billion bottles and cans not recycled in 2005.

The Bottom Line

Using your own Home Soda Fountain System means:

  • Less packaging waste from cans and bottles.
  • Less pollution caused by transport of bottled beverages.
