But the industry is in the midst of change as its deals with the environmental issues associated with the hundreds of millions of plastic bottles in our landfills.
The Polar Station® ice and water vending system is environmentally friendly. It purifies and stores water with its eight-stage process, allowing the public to bring their own bulk containers.
