Choice Market to Remove Single-Use Plastic Water Bottles From Stores by 2021 - CStore Decisions
The Denver chain will install FloWater Refill Stations at all of its locations, enabling customers to refill their reusable water bottles and other containers.
In an effort to reduce plastic waste, Denver-based Choice Market has committed to eliminating all single-use plastic water bottles from its stores by 2021.
Choice will be installing FloWater Refill Stations at all of its locations. 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 tap water into better-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 FloWater Refill Stations mean that Choice customers can now refill their reusable water bottles and other containers safely.
“At Choice, there’s nothing more important than the communities we serve,” said Choice Market Founder and 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.
