Canadian SodaStream users can take credit for reducing waste

Tuesday, November 18th 2014 9:01:50am

(November 18, 2014, Toronto, ON) Many Canadians currently use SodaStream’s sparkling water makers to create sparkling water and flavoured sparkling water beverages. In the last 12 months, Canadian SodaStream users have avoided the environmental impacts associated with the consumption and transportation of hundreds of thousands of plastic and glass bottles.

"Because SodaStream uses water straight from the tap, the system makes traditional store-bought bottled beverages unnecessary,” observed Susie Macrae, SodaStream Canada’s Director of Marketing. “That means reduced environmental impacts, less plastic manufactured, less plastic waste and less fuel used in the transport of heavy bottled beverages."

An analysis conducted on SodaStream products calculated that using a SodaStream sparkling water maker to create carbonated beverages has a carbon footprint 65 to 80 per cent lower than equivalent drinks sold in glass or plastic bottles, according to an independent, third-party.

Every year, Canadians on average consume over 65 litres of bottled water and over 100 litres of carbonated soft drinks. Over one-third of these containers are not recycled, ending up in landfills or as litter in parks, ditches and lakes. Plastic and glass water bottles require waste processing or they will become litter. Throughout the entire manufacturing process, and the transportation and distribution phase, plastic and glass bottles contribute to carbon emissions.

SodaStream’s “Active Green” approach to making sparkling water or flavoured sparkling water, reduces one’s carbon footprint every time a beverage is made.
