Our
Recycling
     Efforts


        Reducing our impact on the environment is a top priority at FreshWaterSystems, and we have implemented some programs to help us achieve this goal. By selling products that are made from sustainable sources, reusing packing materials, and offering products that use a minimum amount of waste, we are doing our part to minimize our carbon footprint on the environment.

   Ways we minimize our environmental impact.


A

COCONUT SHELL CARBON BLOCKS
Coconut shell carbon, which is used in many of our products, is purer than other carbon sources because of its lower inorganic ash content. This carbon source is highly renewable and can be considered a "green" product. Palm trees produce coconuts throughout the year, and the coconut tree is preserved to continue producing for many years. See our eco-friendly line of refrigerator filters.

SHIPPING ORDERS IN REUSED BOXES
By sending some of our shipments in reused boxes, we are doing our part to reduce waste, reuse and recycle. We're saving trees!


C

REPLACE THE CARTRIDGE, NOT THE SYSTEM
Many filtration systems we carry include a hard plastic outer shell so that when you need to replace the filter, you only replace the filter…not the whole system. And many replacement filters can be recycled, too!


We currently have a Sterilight® Ballast Recycling Program in place.

OFFICE RECYCLING PROGRAM
Sustainability starts with our employees! Recycle bins are placed at each and every employee's station, along with their regular trash bin. Recycling bins are placed in the break room, as well. Trash is separated for glass items, paper and plastic items, and general trash.
