ElMascar / Circular Economy Water


El Mascar is a circular economy concept linked to the sale of plastic water bottles. The main goal of this system is to finish the manufacture and use of plastic bottles (0.33 L, 0.5 L, 0.75 L, 1L, 1.5 L and 2 L).

Plastic bottles are replaced by stainless steel or glass bottles. These bottles will be sold without water inside. The company deliver his water in 300 L drums. The supermarket recibes 3 drums from the company (there is one drums inside the supermarket and the others in the storehouse). The water distribution company regularly goes to the supermarkets to collect used drums and leave new ones.
