Toronto, ON-based brewery Steam Whistle has been awarded the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH) National Water Wise Award, which recognizes a commitment to water conservation and purification.

Steam Whistle recently launched a program to conserve water through the installation of water-saving equipment, including a bottle washer, keg filling line, and showerheads on the packaging line.

Beyond water, the brewery’s environmental efforts also include:

  • Green packaging
  • Use of Bullfrog power
  • Bio Diesel fuels in delivery trucks
  • Tapping into Enwave’s Deep Water Cooling for temperature control
  • Energy efficient equipment and lighting
  • Waste diversion

While spring water is used to brew the beer, Steam Whistle uses municipal tap water to wash bottles, cans, kegs, tanks and floors of the packaging line, as well as for water in the office, administration and hospitality areas.

“We’ve examined every aspect of our business to minimize our environmental impacts,” said Cam Heaps, CEO of Steam Whistle. “We’re also working with water quality experts to improve the purity of our wastewater from operations.” www.ciph.ca  www.steamwhistle.ca

    You can get 55 gallon plastic barrels on kijiji for as little as $10. Put it in your basement and use it to help drastically CUT your District water consumption by 80%, down to 50 litres per person per day, year round and SAVE $1,000 per year. Add up all the District’s fixed charges on your property tax and water and sewer bills. It will come to $100+ per month. Usage can be another $100+ per month for a total of $200+!! per month. By FAR the WORST in Ontario. Google “Oppose Bracebridge Sewers” for the website that describes a lot of water and power saving ideas. Some ideas are NO cost and produce big savings.
