Singapore’s first eco-mall City Square Mall has partnered Daiohs Singapore Pte. Ltd, a local provider of workplace drinks solutions, to introduce Well 井, an award-winning smart filtered, user-centric designed water refill station that provides point-of-use drinking water to its mall users.
Certified by the European CE and fitted with International NSF and Italy’s Institute for the Hygienic Quality of Food Technologies Certified Activated Carbon Filtration System, Well 井 leverages smart technology and is designed with the users’ hygiene and behaviours in mind. The water refill station features smart functions such as sensors, data, real-time alerts and remote monitoring to ensure that users are provided with constant and clean filtered drinking water.
Addressing the rising demand and concern for public hygiene, the refill station’s design incorporates a foot pedal control and sensor button to eliminate the need to manually dispense water. It also features a hidden nozzle with programmable auto-rinsing function to prevent contamination and the risk of bacteria growth. Additionally, there is an interactive screen which displays the accumulative number of plastic bottles saved, reinforcing users’ contribution to the environment by reducing single-use plastic bottles usage.
Ms Esther An, CDL Chief Sustainability Officer, said, “To conserve water and reduce plastic waste, CDL is very pleased to offer Well 井water refill stations to our mall users. Apart from providing innovative value-added service and convenience to our shoppers at City Square Mall, we hope to advance the good habit of Bring-Your-Own-Bottle to reduce single-use plastic bottles amongst our building users.”
Mr Gan Hua Koon, President, Daiohs Singapore Pte. Ltd, said, “Our partnership with City Square Mall marks the beginning of our commitment towards a greener Singapore and we are excited to work with a partner who shares this green vision. Our smart filtered water station is not only clean and safe for consumption but also provides a viable option to reduce the use of plastic bottles. We trust that together, we can help shape green behaviour and contribute to the reduction of carbon footprint.
Assessed by Intertek Sustainability, the Well 井smart water refill station has achieved a 63% carbon footprint reduction compared to carboys, a regular rigid plastic water container, and an 81% reduction compared to PET bottles.
