Bluewater teams up with sailing event to ditch the plastic

Sharing a pledge to turn the tide on the plastic tsunami threatening the planet, Bluewater has donated hydration stations to be used at each leg of the 52 Super Series yacht racing circuit as it tours southern Europe this summer.

The 52 Super Series is a monohull yacht racing circuit. This season is the event’s fourth year in partnership with 11th Hour Racing, which works with the sailing community and maritime industries to advance practices that protect and restore the health of the oceans.  

The Bluewater hydration stations deliver chilled water, both still and sparkling, that has been purified of contaminants.

The Bluewater hydration stations deliver chilled water, both still and sparkling, that has been purified of contaminants such as microplastics, which are being found increasingly in tap water worldwide. One station can deliver up to 7,000 liters of water per day, and the system’s filtration technology removes all particles down to 0.0001 micron in size, including toxic metals such as lead, chemicals, pharmaceutical residues and micro-organisms, according to a company statement.  

“We are moving toward a day when we will have distributed water solutions using small water supply systems at the point of consumption that are able to harvest water from multiple sources, such as rain water, brackish water or surface, while also slashing the need for non-sustainable bottled water,” Bluewater President and Chief Strategy Officer Anders Jacobson stated.

Bluewater, founded in Sweden in 2013, now has regional offices in China, the U.S., Hong Kong and South Africa. For more information, visit bluewatergroup.com.
