Reduce Water Waste with InSinkErator

Over two billion people worldwide are still living without access to safe water in their own homes*, however in the UK, each household needlessly and unintentionally wastes gallons of water every day.  InSinkErator® is encouraging consumers to think more about the water they waste and offers consumers solutions to reduce water waste in the home.

The annual World Water Day, held on 22nd March, advocates for the sustainable management of fresh water resources and the 2019 theme is ‘leaving no one behind’, which aims to ensure that everyone has access to safe water, regardless of their circumstances**.

By making small behavioural changes and choosing more water efficient products, households can save resources, as well as save space and increase convenience in the home. It is a common misconception that water efficiency comes from simply restricting the amount water we use, however, water efficiency is all about reducing the amount of water wasted on a daily basis.

A significant amount of water is wasted every day, while households wait for hot water to reach taps from an often distant source. Only ever delivering just the right amount of water necessary, an InSinkErator® 3N1 steaming hot water tap is a positive and sustainable lifestyle change for any household.

The WRAS approved range of 3N1 steaming hot water taps from InSinkErator® also eliminates the wasted water that results from an overfilled kettle; as you only heat the water you use. Achieving approval from the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) demonstrates the commitment of InSinkErator® to compliance and the safety of its consumers, by encouraging the efficient use of water within the home and offering products that prevent the contamination of public water supplies.

Anne Kaarlela, Marketing Communications Manager, Europe and Russia InSinkErator®, says: “World Water Day is a great opportunity for us all to remember that we need to be more vigilant and think about the water we waste. At InSinkErator®, we will continue to promote water saving in the home and offer affordable and stylish solutions to consumers.”
