Think about all the people who fill up at a water cooler every day. With a new product provided by Aqwastream–stations that allow people to fill up their own bottles with water–the company flashes the water fillers with energy efficiency messages. In addition to providing energy efficiency education–especially to college students–the company aims to help cut the energy used in producing plastic bottles. In 2006, a whopping 17 million barrels of oil were used to produce plastic bottles by avoiding the use of them altogether. In this podcast, Mare Van Dyke, Aqwastream’s Co-Founder, also talks about the advantages of managing such systems remotely.
