Since 1960 the amount of water people use in the UK has increased by 66%. We are now consuming 141 litres of water per day. If present levels of consumption continue not just for us but worldwide, two-thirds of the global population will live in areas of water stress by 2025.
Waterblade is now used by companies such as Sainsbury’s, HSBC, Microsoft, Unilever and many other.
E.g. Microsoft – 15 sites across Europe, 800+ basins, providing yearly savings of more than 4.2m litres of water and over 200000 kWh energy. HSBC has 17 UK sites, 2000+ basins.
