Climate change is upon us and is showing no immediate signs of slowing down. We must make conscious choices on an individual level in order to collectively expedite its prevention. We must consume less and make eco-friendly choices. Although it might feel like luxury to have filtered boiling, chilled and sparkling water on tap, a Quooker is a sustainable purchase. With a Quooker in the kitchen, you save water and energy and with a CUBE, you help to reduce the use of disposable plastic bottles.
You use less water and energy
When you dispense water from your Quooker tap, you use the exact amount of water you need. Unlike with a kettle, whereby people often boil more water than needed...or decide to re-boil it because the water has cooled down, wasting lots of energy!
Quooker's patented vaccum tank allows for water to be kept at 110 degrees under pressure. This technology keeps the water hot without needing to use much energy. Think of it as an electrically powered flask, from which no energy can escape. The water only boils when it exits the tap - so it is not constantly boiling inside the vessel.
Our COMBI reservoir has also been awarded Energy Label A. This reservoir not only supplies boiling water, but also hot water for washing up. Read more here about how the COMBI reservoirs work.
Less plastic waste, thanks to the CUBE
With a Quooker CUBE, you will get filtered chilled and sparkling as well as 100 degrees boiling, hot and cold water. This means no more plastic bottles. With a reusable bottle you can enjoy the crisp taste of Quooker's chilled and sparkling water on the go. What's more, you're saving the planet!
The CUBE also saves water. Have you ever left your tap running for a while to get cold enough water to drink? What a waste of water! With a CUBE, you can enjoy the immediacy of super chilled, filtered water without having to wait or more importantly waste litres of water. Read more here about Quooker CUBE.
Sustainable business philosophy
At Quooker we strive for sustainability in all fields. With people and protection of the planet at the forefront of our minds. In 2016, our premises were rebuilt and covered with 900 solar panels. This supplies ALL of our energy needs! In our Return and Recover departments, we recycle old products and manage our waste flows in a sustainable way, in compliance with the WEEE (Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Act.
In addition, a Quooker is easy to maintain which increases its longevity. Our taps typically last between fifteen and twenty years!
