Bluewater, the global Swedish water purification and beverage solutions provider for homes, HORECA, and public dispensing, has helped clean 85,000 kilograms (187,389.7 pounds) of plastic waste in the past three years from coastal areas – that’s the equivalent of approximately 7.1 million PET bottles.
