Why You Should Always Include Bottled Water in Your Vending Machines

Water is an essential nutrient that we need to consume daily. On average, we should be consuming about eight glasses of water per day. When you’re busy at work, school, or roaming around the town it’s easy to forget to continue to drink water throughout the day. For this reason, businesses should always include a water option in their vending machines. Besides quenching your thirst, drinking water has plenty of other benefits. Let’s take a look at some of them!

Healthy Vending Machine Options

Water Helps with Dehydration

Caffeinated drinks like coffee and teas can promote dehydration. If you’re an avid coffee and tea drinker, it’s important to incorporate water throughout the day. If you are experiencing foggy memory, fatigue, headaches, or irritability, then that’s a sign that you need to start drinking water!

To help keep your body hydrated, you should always have at least one glass of water with and between meals. Plus, drinking water at these times can help keep you fuller longer and tame your hunger throughout the day!

Stay Energized by Drinking Water

Dehydration also has negative effects on your mood and energy levels. During a busy day, the last thing you need is to feel fatigued and unmotivated. To work effectively, you need to remain hydrated. Drinking water throughout the workday will help maintain a healthy heart and blood pressure, as well as, keep you energized and focused throughout your long day.

A Healthy Option to Drink Throughout the Day

Consumers are starting to pay more attention to learning about the ingredients in the foods that they eat and drink every day. Water is the healthiest beverage you can drink, so it’s only right to include multiple water options in your vending machine. Not to mention, options like sparkling water, purified water and bottled water all save you calories throughout the day.

Melaleuca Oil: A Green and Effective Clean

Tree oil The vending machines you’ve seen here and there might not strike you as particularly environmentally friendly – how can a vending machine function while keeping the environment in mind, anyway? At Orsino Vending, though, we care about the Earth and are constantly looking for ways to make our operations cleaner and greener.

One of the best ways we look out for the environment is by using cleaning solutions made from melaleuca oil. Standard cleaning solutions can be pretty acidic or loaded with environmentally hazardous chemicals, but our solution provides the safest way possible to clean our machines. But what is this oil?

Melaleuca alternifolia is a tree species found in Australia. The oil that comes from this tree is perhaps better known to most people as tea tree oil, an essential oil distilled from the melaleuca tree and used in many different ways. Its properties have been known to act as an antiseptic, antifungal, antibiotic, anti-inflammatory and much more. It’s also commonly found in some shampoos and conditioners.

One of its other many talents is that it can be used as a cleaning agent when combined with other ingredients. You can even make bars of soap – just combine two cups of melted glycerin soap base and two tablespoons of tea tree oil, stir, pour into soap molds and let them cool! Melaleuca oil is even used to treat acne, ear aches, athlete’s foot and warts in some cases. Check out even more uses for tea tree oil on Mother Earth Living’s website.

Given the many purposes and uses for melaleuca oil, it’s not surprising that the oil can be used by our agents when cleaning vending machines. This tree oil is so great against mold, mildew and bacteria because of its high concentration of antimicrobial and antiviral properties. This also means that like many other essential oils, a little goes a long way, and it works great to keep our vending machines clean and sanitary.

Many companies chose cheap and harmful chemical cleaners, but we prefer the natural and effective tree oil route – and now you can see why.
