Wrigleys : Wrigley Pacific Sustainability Report 2010
240,000 The number of litres of water Asquith tanks are helping our local community to save each year Wrigley Pacific sustainability rePort 2010 11 The cost of water in Australia is projected to continue to increase in coming years, as the combined impact of prolonged drought and population growth places greater demand on an already scarce resource. As part of our commitment to helping the communities where we live and work to advance their own sustainability, the team at our Asquith factory in NSW has found an innovative way to turn second-hand items into first-class sustainability tools. One of the key ingredients for the products manufactured at our Asquith facility is delivered in massive 1000 litre heavy-duty plastic containers that , once emptied, used to be compacted and sent away for recycling. The Asquith team has identified a much better use for these containers, converting them into rainwater harvesting tanks, which are then donated to local schools and residences. To date, more than 80 containers have been converted into rainwater capture tanks and installed throughout our local community. We also recently installed three converted tanks at the Tacoma Public School on the Central Coast, where they now provide water for all of the school’s gardens. The new water tanks are helping our local community save more than 240,000 litres of water each year – about the same amount of water as you’d need to fill more than five domestic swimming pools! every drop counts Rainwater capture tanks at Tacoma Public School People
