UAE manufacturer Sprudel has launched the hands-free Sprudel PDL system to help restaurants, hotels, workplaces and homes go plastic-free with increased safety.
The Sprudel PDL is a foot-operated pedal system that allows the user to dispense still or sparkling water without using their hands. The foot pedal itself is made out of recycled plastic bottles.
The filtration machines are available in modern designs that are said to compliment all types of surroundings and deliver high quality hygienic water which fulfils the guidelines set out by the World Health Organisation on safe drinking water for human consumption.
Shawn Green, founder of Sprudel said: “In a very short span of time we have not only designed a pedal system for our water purifiers in-house, but we also found a solution that upcycles plastic water bottles and turns them into durable and useful products. Each Sprudel PDL is made of approximately 12 recycled plastic bottles.”
The pandemic has led to a surge in the consumption of single-use plastics due to health and safety concerns, which has imposed threat of an environmental fall-out. Sprudel wants to help become part of the solution by encouraging the community to take simple steps towards eliminating plastic and protecting the environment.
