Refeeling.es: Good water without plastic consumption
Refeeling is an initiative designed and implemented with Dropson technology that generates quality drinking water with sanitary guarantees. It allows the use of reusable bottles made of glass, metal or long-lasting plastics, thus avoiding single-use plastic waste. This system contributes significantly to the reduction of the environmental impact on the islands, reducing the carbon footprint of the water consumed by up to 98%.
Bearing in mind that the Canary Islands face significant challenges in not having an industry that recycles plastics of all kinds and prevents most of them from ending up, at best, in landfills, Refeeling directly addresses the problem of the use of plastic packaging, also helping to mitigate microplastic pollution in the seas.
Our visit to Arucas was also an opportunity to meet all the project’s collaborators, and to participate as speakers in an exclusive meeting thanks to Miqueas Sánchez and Ancor Sarabia, heads of Andén Verde SL and Refeeling.
