Most offices aren’t so stingy as to leave their staff drinking tap water, and will likely have some sort of water system in place. Usually, this is a water cooler with big bottles of distilled water plugged in at the top—it’s simple and does the job.
But have you ever stopped to consider the amount of plastic waste that this generates? According to the Environmental Protection Department, Hong Kong landfills an average of over 10,000 tonnes of municipal solid waste every day, and more than 20 percent of this is plastic waste—this is enough to weigh more than 90 double-decker buses! Those bottles that conveniently keep offices citywide hydrated also feed into this problem, of course, so if you haven’t given a second thought to what happens to these bottles after they’re emptied and replaced, it’s time to seriously consider alternatives.
Pluvial Plus is a Hong Kong-based company that produces free-standing countertop water filters. With no machinery needed to operate the system, all you have to do is pour water into the tank at the top, and let gravity do the rest as the water slowly gets filtered through and stored in the catchment tank below. This is a much more environmentally friendly water supply system for offices and households!
In addition, Pluvial Plus uses a seven-stage filter including ceramic, activated carbon, volcanic zeolites, and other minerals, which works to remove harmful substances such as chlorine, volatile organic compounds, parasites, and heavy metals from your drinking water. The cherry on top? The filter also actually adds healthy minerals back into your water as well!
