A more sustainable lifestyle in the kitchen
Every drop of water counts. That is why GROHE is constantly developing innovative products and technologies that help consumers achieve a more sustainable water consumption in their everyday lives, while also minimizing their personal carbon footprint. But how exactly can GROHE products help consumers incorporate sustainability into their daily routine?
One answer is the GROHE Blue water system. It provides chilled, filtered and, if desired, carbonated water straight from the kitchen tap – with a perfect taste. But how exactly does GROHE Blue help people achieve more sustainability? Thanks to this intelligent functionality, this resource-saving solution not only reduces the ecological footprint, but also enables consumers to live more sustainably. But what precisely is it doing for our environment and society?
Up to seven liters of water are needed to produce one liter of bottled water. With GROHE Blue, you only need one liter of fresh water to put a liter of fresh sparkling water on the dinner table.
Reducing plastic bottles
According to Deutsche Umwelthilfe (Environmental Action Germany), a family of four uses 800 plastic bottles per year. (1) Thanks to GROHE Blue, these plastic bottles are no longer necessary. The water system is thus fundamentally changing the way drinking water is consumed and promotes a change in our behavior towards adopting more sustainable habits.
Saving CO2 emissions
The production and transportation processes of one liter of bottled mineral water cause emissions of up to 600g of CO2 . With the water source in your own kitchen, CO2 emissions are reduced by up to 61% per year and you also save the trip to the supermarket. (2)

Offering intergenerational convenience
In view of changing demographics and an increasingly ageing society, the intuitive operation of GROHE Blue is another plus: The preferred type of water can be selected simply by touching a button, which, via a color LED display with icons, is easy to understand for every age group. Other hurdles for older or physically challenged people are also eliminated: With GROHE Blue, fresh drinking water is available at all times, making trips to the supermarket and carrying heavy water bottles a thing of the past.
