Using less energy and water
Each litre of water filled at our manufacturing plants uses the same amount of energy as one energy-efficient compact fluorescent light bulb. We keep our transport costs to a minimum by distributing our bottled water on a local level. A typical Neverfail bottled spring water operation sources and distributes most of its product within 100 kilometres of its bottling plant and distribution centre.
Approximately 0.3 litres of water are used to wash and rinse each of our reusable polycarbonate bottles, which is below the industry average. Neverfail has also invested significantly in water-saving technology. For example, our bottling plant in Yatala, Queensland has underground tanks that collect and recycle wastewater used in the washing process, saving us substantially in water use. In our bottling plant at Malaga, Western Australia, excess trade wastewater is transferred directly into storage tanks and re-used to irrigate gardens in the immediate area.
