Roger Budgeon and Greenshop Group win Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust Award

 Rainharvesting Systems LNovember 2013 

Roger Budgeon and the Greenshop Group win wildlife award! 

We are delighted to announce that Roger Budgeon has won the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust’s award for “outstanding contribution to nature in Gloucestershire by a business leader”. 

This is part of the GWT’s ‘Nature Works’ Business Awards 2013, celebrating the efforts made by local businesses to work with and enhance the natural environment. 

This award reflects Roger’s commitment to the environment, both at home, and within the Greenshop Group in Bisley. 

Examples of this commitment include the use of sustainable technologies, the creation of wildlife habitats, land management and the ongoing development of nature-beneficial ideas. 

Congratulations Roger! 

By Gum! - Rainharvesting Systems win another SWIG award 

We are also pleased to announce that Rainharvesting Systems Ltd has won the 2013 Sustainable Water Industry Group’s award for the ‘Non-Domestic Retrofit’ category. This follows on from the award which we gained in 2011 for the system that supplies water to the vehicle washing plant for Cardiff Bus. 

This award is for the supply of the 100,000-litre harvesting system to the Wrigley chewing gum factory in Plymouth. They now use rainwater instead of mains water in their cooling towers, and have calculated that they are capturing enough rainwater to supply a third of the water required. 

Thanks to this system, Wrigleys can expect to see much lower water bills, as well as reinforcing their commitment to the environment. A win-win situation! 

Half a Million Vortex filters - Now with 5-year warranty! 

Since they began in 1989, WISY AG have now produced over 500,000 units of their unique Vortex filters and downpipe filter-collectors. If the harvesting capacity of all these units is added together, Wisy have calculated that they are collecting an astonishing 41 million cubic metres of water per annum, enough to meet the entire toilet-flushing requirements of the population of Berlin, some 3.3 million people! 

To prove their confidence in the quality, durability and performance of their products, all Wisy Vortex filters now come with an amazing 5-year warranty. 

This beats all of the competition - hands down!
