Bristol Water has teamed up with E.ON and Save Water Save Money to provide free water efficiency equipment to customers.
The water we all use has an impact on the environment, even when water isn’t in short supply.
Water comes from the environment and takes energy and raw materials to purify and to supply.
This creates a carbon footprint for water – the carbon footprint of supplying the Bristol area in 2009 was over 45,000 tonnes of CO2.
If we include the carbon footprint of hot water use in the home, it’s a lot higher: in fact, the carbon footprint of domestic hot water in the UK is the same as the aviation industry.
Visit the water efficiency shop, where you can order a free water efficiency kit and other discounted water-saving items. If you’re on a meter, the kit could help you save over £50 a year on your water and energy bills.
