In an effort to reduce plastic waste, Choice will be installing new-tech, advanced purification FloWater Refill Stations at all of its current and future locations. As of Earth Day 2020, FloWater has saved more than 300 million plastic water bottles from entering the nation’s oceans, rivers, lakes and landfills.
The FloWater Refill Station technology transforms ordinary tap water into the world’s best tasting water, while removing up to 99.9% of all impurities, viruses, toxins and heavy metals. Fully self-sanitizing and with “no-contact” dispensing nozzles, the new FloWater Refill Stations mean that Choice customers can now refill their reusable water bottles and other containers safely and never have to buy another plastic water bottle again.
“At Choice, there’s nothing more important than the communities we serve,” said Choice Market Founder & CEO Mike Fogarty. “Single-serve plastic water bottles are one of the leading items sold in our industry and yet most of these bottles end up in the landfill or the ocean. We couldn’t be more excited to partner with FloWater to provide our customers with its convenient, great tasting water solution while also reducing our plastic footprint.”
In addition to having FloWater Refill Stations, Choice will offer FloWater’s new, infinitely recyclable aluminum multi-use water bottles for just $2.99 each, making it easy for customers to grab a drink of water, even if they have forgotten their own refillable.
“We are thrilled to work with Choice to eliminate single-use plastic water bottles from their stores, while providing their customers a great-tasting, safe and sustainable drinking water option,” said FloWater CEO & Co-Founder Rich Razgaitis. “For the same price as a single-use plastic water bottle, consumers can now opt for the FloWater Multi-Use bottle and refill over and over again using the same bottle. In the process, we dramatically reduce single-use plastic waste and eliminate the unnecessary shipping of water, while providing retailers and consumers an option for a sustainable ‘Grab and Go’ drinking water solution.”
