Zip Water is committed to building a better, more sustainable world by improving both our social and environmental impact. We have partnered with sustainability consultancy, Edge Environment, to help you quantify the impact of using a HydroTap.

Environmental Impact Calculator
We conducted an independent-expert reviewed, ISO 14040-44 conforming Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of our award-winning HydroTap products. This LCA analysed the climate impact and resource use of our HydroTap products across their full life cycle, including acquisition of raw materials, manufacturing, distribution, usage, and disposal, and compared these impacts to relevant alternative products.
