Why you should be using a reusable bottle

Why you should be using a reusable bottle

According to the Environmental Audit Commitee urgent action is needed to protect our environment from the effects of plastic pollution. Mary Creagh from the commitee says: "Our throwaway society uses 13 billion plastic bottles each year, around half of which are not recycled. Plastic bottles make up a third of all plastic pollution in the sea" (8 million tons of plastic is being dumped into our oceans every year)  This is not only harmful to wildlife but also recent studies have found that billions of people around the world are drinking water contaminated with plastic. 

As part of the government's environmental policy, Theresa May has pledged to elimitate all avoidable plastic waste within 25 years. With this and the recent news headlines talking about the extremely detrimental effects plastic are having on the environment many people are looking into ways they can reduce their plastic usage. One way you can do this is by purchasing a reuseable bottle.

Our stainless steel bottles are the perfect alternative to plastic bottles. Made from Grade 304 18/8 food safe stainless steel the bottle is reusable, dishwasher safe and perfect for keeping your drinks cold (you can even put alcohol in them!). These bottles are BPA free, non reactive, non leaching (so it won't hold any odours or lingering tastes) and are highly corrosion resistant meaning you can keep on using and using it! Not only will this help stop the amount of plastic in landfills and our oceans but it will also save you money in the long run.

Our bottles come with a sports top as standard so is great for daily use but also for sport, exercise and outdoor pursuits. We also stock bamboo screw tops and stainless steel screw tops if you would prefer.

If you're looking for something a bit different we also stock stainless steel pint cups which come in a pack of 4. These pint cups are perfect for camping, BBQs, festivals and hiking. The stylish cardboard packaging means they'll also make a nice gift for someone looking to reduce their plastic usage.

So whether you're looking at the bottle or the pint cups join us on our mission to try and reduce our plastic waste!
