Water cooler gets self-collapsible packaging design

It’s a staple in the workplace and synonymous with people gathering together to discuss last night’s season finale of the latest show. And now the water cooler is getting a green makeover with its new collapsible packaging design to improve collection efforts for recycling. 

It’s highly likely that if you have a water cooler in your house or workplace, it’s a large PET dispenser bottle which is much lighter than traditional glass versions, which weigh close to 20 kg in their five-gallon versions. A regular multi-trip PET dispenser bottle—when it sits on a dispensing unit that has a refrigeration system incorporated into it—weighs around 650 g by contrast.
