Health & Safety

Sparks, NV Haws Corporation is participating in Earth Day with a variety of events to honor the one-year anniversary of the environmentally friendly HydrationStation. The HydrationStation dispenses filtered water through a touch-free, hygienic unit thereby encouraging users to reduce bottled water use. Each HydrationStation saves over 37,000 16.9oz bottles per year, with average use. Over the past year, the HydrationStation has been installed at numerous schools and buildings across the nation including Notre Dame, University of California at Davis, and Monarch Mountain Ski Resort, with an estimated savings of over 18,900,000 16.9oz plastic bottles. Last Fall Haws was the first Nevada Company to encourage employees to Ban the Bottle and held an iRefill pledge day sponsored by Washoe County Health District.

On Tuesday, April 20 Haws will be donating reusable water bottles and other giveaways to the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) Earth Day festivities. UNR recently installed the revolutionary HydrationStation in the new Joe Crowley Student Union to rave reviews from students and faculty. In addition, Haws will host its own Earth Day/HydrationStation anniversary party on Thursday, April 22 for employees. The celebration will be in conjunction with Haws 10th annual Bring Your Child to Work day where employees bring their children to educate them on Haws and their products, including the HydrationStation and the importance of environmental conservation.
