Go green in 2016. Start recycling rainwater.

Start Recycling Rainwater in 2016

Gutter Mate is urging people to Go-Green by recycling rainwater for their home and garden in 2016.

With Climate Change currently at the forefront of world’s political agenda in Paris, it’s a fitting time for us all to review how we can change our own lives in order to help the environment. 

During COP21, The World Water Council has been campaigning to elevate the recognition for water and climate through the #ClimateIsWater initiative. Benedito Braga, President of The World Water Council, reminded government representatives that failing to address the relationship between water and climate puts our future in jeopardy.

As an award winning rain water recycling business, this is a sentiment that Gutter Mate shares. Company director Haydon Robinson, firmly believes that recycling rain water is one way that everyone can reduce their carbon footprint and has a positive impact on the environment and world that we live in.

“We believe that rainwater harvesting can make a real difference to the global climate change crisis. We want to see rainwater harvesting shift from being a niche practice to an everyday commodity. Every household in the UK and beyond should have a system installed by which rain water can be collected, stored and recycled.”

In 2011, Gutter Mate won Best Recycling Project at the Green Herts Awards for their Rainwater Diverter & Filter, which when installed to your downpipe diverts and filters rainwater to a storage facility like a waterbutt or tank.  Since then, thousands of Gutter Mate’s Diverters and Filters have been installed in homes and commercial buildings across the country, enabling them to recycle what falls from the sky.

Installing a basic rainwater harvesting system at your home does not have to break the bank. Having a simple system like a rainwater diverter & water butt, can virtually eliminate the need to use tap water for many outdoor and domestic uses, such as, watering the garden, washing the car, cleaning the windows and mopping the floors. We have some great deals on affordable rain water recycling packages that can be easily installed at home.

As well as having environmental benefits, people should also be motivated by the financial incentive. Using harvested rainwater means zero energy consumption.  You will be saving money on your household water bills as well as reducing your carbon footprint.
