The colourful cap stickers on our MINDS Water bottles have been our trademark for a while now, but do you know what is the purpose of these stickers?
These colourful stickers are designed with 2 purposes. Firstly, it's to create work engagement opportunities for our trainees with high support needs. As we're unable to involve our trainees at other stages of production for these bottled water, the work they do for MINDS Water is limited to labelling and packing. For our standard bottles, our trainees add these lovely cap stickers to the bottle caps of fully-labelled bottles. For customised bottles, there is an additional step of applying customised label to the bottles.
Other than work creation, the cap stickers have another important role to play. They serve as markers to differentiate identical bottles. During meetings and events, it is common for bottles to get mixed up after a while. And to avoid drinking from the wrong bottle, people tend to take a new bottle. At the end of the day, we end up with a whole lot of half-drank bottles to be thrown away. By adding a different coloured sticker to every bottle cap, we allow people to differentiate their bottles more easily, and hence reducing wastage.
Our cap stickers come in 24 different colours, 1 for each bottle in a carton. So now you know, these stickers are not just bright and happy to look at, they serve meaningful purposes too!
