Welcome to new PA Professional member WaterUps, who are also generously offering PA members a big discount on their entire range of products. Read more to find out some staggering statistics on how much plastic and water they’ve saved and reused, as the end of Plastic Free July comes to an end. You can also read more about the team in this article we did in 2020 too.
“The lockdown has seen a lot of people focus on their gardens and the physical and mental health benefits they offer so it’s been really nice to see so many people exploring how to grow their own food and, even better, do it in a sustainable fashion.
“The reduced food miles/carbon footprint and of course reduced waste (plastics and unused food) are all additional benefits that can help reduce the pressures on our fragile environment so we’re so happy to be able to play our part whilst also promoting and supporting groups like Permaculture Australia who contribute so much good to the community.”
Interestingly, as it’s “plastic free July” we’re incredibly proud to be able to report that we ticked over the 8.6 tonne figure of the amount of plastic that we’ve saved from landfill and that has been recycled to our products.
In turn, It’s estimated that the people who are using WaterUps® have then saved nearly 25.5 million litres of water compared to the same gardens using an above ground irrigation system!
We’re pretty proud of those numbers and thank you for your support in helping us achieve this, and for encouraging others to find our more about our efforts.
