Beat The Heat
& Dehydration!


Up to 70% of the workforce already don't drink enough water at work, and the summer heat only makes it more difficult to maintain proper hydration levels. This is especially true in industries with active employees or manual labor, like warehousing, landscaping, even busy healthcare and hospitality spaces where it's common to be on your feet. This is when workplaces need to take a proactive (and fun!) approach to encourage rehydration. That's where Powdered Drink Mixes come in!

 Gatorade's Powdered Drink Mixes are the perfect solution to hydrating your active team. Electrolytes, like the kind in Gatorade and similar drinks, are known to help hydrate faster than water alone. Create larger batches that everyone can enjoy without needing to find storage or refrigeration space to house individual bottles. These packets have a longer shelf life and take up minimal space when not in use, so nothing goes to waste. These packets are not only perfect for busy workplaces, but for any recreational groups or company events that might take place over the summer.

If you have a smaller team or employees on-the-go, instead consider single-serve packs by Thorzt, designed by Olympic athletes for the workforce. These individual packets are also infused with essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to support more efficient hydration, and can be mixed with a standard 16 oz bottle of water. This is perfect for on-the-go use and a more individualized approach to hydration. You can click here to learn more about Thorzt Solo Shots.

Why should I switch to Warehouse Direct as my coffee supplier?
