REUSABLE WATER BOTTLE - ONE SIMPLE CHANGE - ZERO WASTE
The reason @Bambuu&Co has launched a reusable water bottle!
How many of you have made the swap to a reusable water bottle that yet? There are so many reasons why the swap should be made!
Here are my top 5 reasons why!
1.Fighting against plastic pollution
Research has shown approximately 13 billion plastic bottles are chucked away each year in the UK, less than 50% of these plastic water bottles are recycled. outstandingly, plastic bottles take an average of 450 years to degrade. This means that the plastic bottles are dumped in landfill for hundreds of years or even worse end up in our oceans killing marine life. Your everyday person drinks 4 plastic bottles a day, which means you would be saving 1,460 plastic bottles per year by using a reusable bottle. No brainer.
2. It will save you money
By making your One Simple Change to an @Bambuu&Co water bottle not only will you be saving the planet you will be saving money too! Let's work it out, say an average bottle of water costs £1.50 and you buy one 5 times a week. Every month you will be spending £30 just on water, that's £360 a year! Madness.
3.Think of your health
The biggest risk associated with drinking bottled water is the fact that you can be exposed to dangerous toxins from the plastic. Even though water is not acidic, whenever you drink out of a plastic bottle, you risk ingesting the chemicals used to make the bottles as these toxins can leach into the water over time especially if the bottle is old or has been exposed to heat.
4. Not just for water!
The @Bambuu&co water bottle isn't just for water, You can choose whatever you want, the bottle even keeps heat in for 6+hours. Perfect for coffee or tea! How cool is that.
5. Helping whilst switching
For every @Bambuu&co water bottle purchased, a proportion of the profits goes towards Humanitas Charity. As a company @Bambuu&Co are directing the funds towards building a solar powered water well in rural Ghana so that the community have access to constant, clean flowing water.
Did you know also that a recent audit on plastic trash around the world concluded that Coca-Cola was the largest plastic polluter.
The audit, conducted by Break Free From Plastic, consisted of 848 cleanup events across 51 countries and six continents. In total, 72,541 volunteers combed through beaches, city streets, waterways, and their neighborhoods picking up pieces of plastic. That's crazy!
What I love about @Bambuu&Co is that they organise their own clean-ups across the world. Last year alone they collected over 600 Kilos of plastic. They are fighting and preventing plastic pollution at the same, I wish every company had that approach. Go check out their website to get your reusable water bottle and whilst you're there check out the other sustainable alternatives to help eradicate plastic pollution once and for all.
