Glastonbury Spring Water appreciates the need in reducing /off setting our carbon footprint where at all possible.

When taking on our new build at Park Corner Farm, Glastonbury, the environment & climate change heavily influenced the way we carried out the design.

                                

We developed a run down council farm into a state of the art production facility with every aspect of the design encompassing recyclable or renewable materials wherever possible.

All bricks in the build were reclaimed from the previous farm buildings.  Sheep’s wool was used as insulation for the roof.  Under floor heating installed with a ground source heat pump to warm the offices & production areas & solar panels introduced to provide hot water for our bottling plant.

A reed bed sewerage waste system completed the installation. Now the plant is fully operational all plastics, bottles & wrapping are recycled locally as well as cardboard. We are continually striving further towards our green goals.

Our efforts haven’t gone unnoticed, winning both the Bath & West Innovative Buildings Award & the CLA Rural Buildings Award. 

How we helped the environment:-

  • Sheep’s wool insulation
  • High spec double glazing
  • Reed bed sewerage
  • Reclaimed materials from the old building
  • Underfloor heating powered by ground source heat pump
  • Hot water heated by solar panels

                                                  

Cooler Recycling

  • Our water is bottled at source onsite from our own borehole, no tankering is involved at any stage.
  • Reusable, recyclable, polycarbonate bottle. 
  • All cups can be recycled.
  • Taps, reservoir, driptray are all reusable and cleanable,without any throw away parts.
  • Coolers are recycled by the manufacturer at the end of their life.
  • All of our cardboard & plastic packaging is recycled by Biffa Recycling, a local company nearby.

Other Recycling Initiatives

  • All our drivers now carry PDA’s to eliminate the use of paper.
  • We are continually tree planting to expand our orchards at Park Corner.

If you are interested in our build or any of the schemes running at Park Corner including our higher level stewardship we would be more than happy for you to pay us a visit.
