Hensley Employees are encouraged to ‘take the pledge’ in order to conserve water and actively participate in World Environment Day 2016.

Every year on June 5, the United Nations uses World Environment Day (WED) to raise awareness about environmental issues and inspire people across the globe to do something positive for our planet.

That’s why we at Hensley Beverage Company are joining forces with Anheuser-Busch to spread a message about the importance of water conservation. In addition to being the main ingredient in all of our beers, water is vital for our collective economic, social and environmental well being.

This World Environment Day, and every day, we encourage our employees, and all of you to pledge to conserve water in your daily routine. Here is a list of simple things you can do to help preserve our planet’s most precious resource:

-Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth, shaving and washing your hands
-Take shorter showers and instead of letting water go down the drain while it heats up, collect it in a bucket to use for watering your plants or for cleaning your house
-Fix your leaky faucets and pipes
-Avoid running your dishwasher and laundry machine until they are fully loaded, or be sure to set the water level to match your needs

Hensley Beverage Company employees will participate in ‘taking the pledge’ in order to conserve water from May 20- June 5, 2016. In recognition of World Environment Day 2016, employees are encouraged to get involved by skipping shaving, turning off water while brushing and/or face washing, as well as to take shorter showers. The average shave uses 3-10 gallons of water, so nearly 5 gallons of water could be saved for each skipped shave leading up to World Environment Day.

Whatever you do, think twice before using water in your daily routine! Together we can make an exponential difference.

World Environment Day 2016- From Seed to Sip

Water is a key ingredient in beer – not to mention vital to all life on our planet. That’s why Anheuser-Busch strives to conserve it at every step of the brewing process. Over the past 10 years Anheuser-Busch has reduced its water use by nearly 50 percent at U.S. breweries. During this year’s World Environment Day, make a resolution to conserve water in your daily routine, too.
