Blast Event Hire is striving to reduce plastic consumption in Bristol events and working towards a “plasticfreebefore2020”. There has been a huge backlash against single use plastic bottles, with Glastonbury the most recent and high profile event to ban the sale of them, and the trend is likely to continue throughout the UK. Every Bristol event can now aim to become a plastic bottle free site for 2020, through the organisers offering free drinking water at every entrance and exit to anyone with a multi-use sports/refillable bottle and a ban on traders selling plastic bottles.
After a very successful trial at the Bristol Harbour Festival, w e would like to introduce our water service station or ‘hydration station’. The units themselves measure 240cm x 50cm x 120cm (WxDxH) and have four push lever taps. With a normal domestic water pressure, these will fill 4 x 500ml water bottles in less than 20 seconds, 12 x 500ml in one minute and 720 x 500ml water bottles per hour, allowing time to actually remove the water bottle and put the next bottle under the tap. They can be linked together back to back and with the same water pressure, can fill 1440 bottles per hour.
