Classeq Eau de Vie bottled water system wins Green Apple Award

15 November 2011 by

Classeq's http://www.winterhalter.co.uk" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer">Eau de Vie](http://www.eaudevie.com) on-site bottled water system for hotels and restaurants has won a Green Apple Award in the 18th year of the scheme run by the [Green Organisation ](http://greenorg.livewirecms.com/)to reward environmental best practice and sustainable development.

The system filters and chills mains water which is then served to customers in upmarket, reusable bottles in still or sparkling form. It dramatically reduces an operator's carbon footprint compared with using conventional bottled waters.

According to a 2009 report by Biothinking International, using water in disposable glass bottles results in 500 times more landfill waste than the Eau de Vie system and increases an operator's carbon footprint by in excess of 13 times.

The report also found that one-trip PET bottles generated 40 times more waste and more than four times the carbon dioxide emissions.

Classeqis part of the [Winterhalter UK group.
