Looking for a non-alcoholic alternative this Christmas? The sustainable Devon spring water company is celebrating a bumper summer of sales – and saving nearly 150,000kg of glass from going to landfill. The company, which puts sustainability at the centre of everything it does, has sold 250,000 bottles of water and reused an impressive 201,000. It's the only spring water company in the south of England with a business model focused on reusing glass bottles again and again. Washing and refilling the bottles use just 6% of the energy required to recycle glass, reducing CO2 by 94%. Plus, there's no plastic pollution going into the world's oceans.
Over Devonia's 18 years in business, the company has saved a whopping 144,995kg of glass from going to landfill, by collecting and reusing its bottles from hotels, pubs, cafes, restaurants, special events and private customers across Devon. After adding 35 new trade customers to its books this summer, including 15 wedding and events venues, Devonia is on track to double the size of its operations in 2023. The company wants to move to a larger facility that will allow for more organic growth and is looking to hire new staff, as well as purchase new vans and machinery. The Telegraph has recently declared Devon the greatest county in England, according to science. With the winning combination of the great outdoors and delicious local food and drink, it's hard to argue. Say cheers with a delicious South Devon Southside cocktail recipe, featuring Devonia sparkling water. Devonia's water is bottled at source from a spring that bubbles up on the edge of a meadow near the villages of Beeson and Beesands, less than a mile from the sea. With a natural soft taste, both still and sparkling products are available in 330ml or 750ml bottles. As well as being a sustainable business, Devonia supports the Dartmoor Rescue Group's Ashburton team, of which owner Neil Graham has been a full member for years. By purchasing Devonia water, customers are also supporting the incredible work of the mountain rescue team.
