Global business and financial software provider Intuit will start using beverage company PathWater’s reusable bottle to reduce plastic waste.

As part of the partnership, PathWater will offer its customised bottles, replacing the single-use plastic water bottles at several Intuit’s sites in the US and Canada.

Using PathWater’s purified water in reusable, recyclable aluminium bottles, Intuit aims to reduce single-use plastic waste.

Aluminium is 100% recyclable and 75% of the material that has been produced so far is still in use.

Intuit global sustainability leader Sean Kinghorn said: “We could no longer support the wasteful sale of thousands of plastic water bottles a day, and once we decided to reduce single-use plastics, we sought out PathWater as a partner to offer a 100% recyclable and refillable bottled water alternative.

“PathWater has devised a solution for tackling the global epidemic of single-use plastic water bottles, and their competitive price point, premium reusable packaging and responsibly sourced water make them the ideal partner on our journey to a zero-waste campus.”

Intuit has installed filtered water dispensers at all of its offices, where employees can refill and reuse the bottle and help the company to eliminate single-use plastics.

The company will launch an internal campaign Choose to Reuse to encourage employees to refill PathWater and other reusable bottles.

According to PathWater, its bottle becomes carbon-neutral after reusing for three times. Most consumers have reused their bottles over ten times.
