Reusable hydration is in!
The weather’s hotting up here in London and the ever-caring TFL have started releasing tannoy notifications on tubes and buses to make sure you always carry a bottle of water in the heat.
Every year, on average each person in the UK uses 170 disposable plastic bottles. Not only does it take 162g of oil and seven litres of water to manufacture a single one litre disposable PET bottle but the reality of their end of life is very destructive: piled on landfill, littering the environment and floating in our oceans.
To help you make the switch from single-use to reusable bottles, here’s my guide to the top 5 re-usable, sustainable and stylish water bottles:
BPA-free and made from aluminium, Selfridges have their own Project Ocean design of the SIGG bottle to help raise awareness of the issue we have with plastic waste in the oceans.
Eco-friendly, reusable and made from sugarcane. For every bottle purchased Yuhme work with a water access partner to give the equivalent of 6 bottles of water to people in water-scarce areas of Africa.
3. Jerry Bottle:
Eco-friendly, with a reclaimed bamboo lid, 100% of Jerry Bottle’s profits go to fund water projects around the world to campaign against single-use plastic bottle pollution.
BPA-free, and made of stainless steel, Klean Kanteen support and work with a variety of organisations that tackle plastic pollution, educate young people and conserve the environment.
Stylish and sustainable this one is my favourite! Chilly’s have combined the ultimate design with their mission to make reusable the norm to form an aesthetically pleasing but practical bottle. So remember kids, stay happy, hydrated and sustainable! 💧🍒🌊
