Brewery supports watershed cleanup
Anheuser-Busch is a proud supporter of World Environment Day (June 5) and we continually look for ways to reduce, reuse and recycle at our U.S. breweries, while maintaining our high-quality standards for brewing beer.
On June 6, Merrimack brewery employees will join the New Hampshire Rivers Council for a cleanup along the McQuesten watershed. We have also joined Budweiser fans across the country in the “Grow One. Save a Million” campaign.
By not shaving for the weeks leading up to World Environment Day, we hope to save gallons of water. Each shave uses about 5 gallons of water, so each guy can save approximately 35 gallons of water per week by not shaving.
At the brewery, 50 employees have pledged not to shave, saving more than 3,500 gallons of water. To take the pledge, visit www.facebook.com/budweiser. This World Environment Day, we invite our friends and neighbors to join us in making at least one positive change to help sustain our planet. By working together, we can keep our community clean, safe and beautiful for future generations.
Across our U.S. breweries, we have reduced our water use by 34 percent in the past three years, which is a credit to our employees’ commitment to this effort.
Water conservation is important for our communities (and a key ingredient in beer). Across our U.S. breweries, we have reduced our water use by 34 percent in the past three years, which is a credit to our employees’ commitment to this effort.
