5 reasons why you need an eco-friendly water bottle
Did you know in the last 40 years alone, humans have destroyed 50% of the world’s oceans? Staggering statistics like this are proof that we as a collective group, but also as individuals, need to start making some serious changes. Reducing our plastic usage is a major way to tackle global warming on a personal level.
Today we’re going to talk about reusable bottles. While cutting back on single-use plastic is most people’s driving force when it comes to buying one, there’s a little more to it. Eco-friendly water bottles have a whole host of desirable features that make them an essential item to own. We’ll run through these as we discuss how you can hydrate guilt-free and in style.
Reduce your carbon footprint
Buying and disposing of plastic water bottles has a terrible impact on the planet. Using just one a day creates a horrific ton of plastic waste, from the bottles themselves to the plastic lids. It’s not just landfills that they end up in but our oceans. Turtles and other marine animals regularly die as a result of plastic waste as they cannot distinguish it from jellyfish and other food sources. By using a reusable bottle, like the BKR Glass Bottles, you can bring your plastic bottle usage down to a refreshing zero. These leak-proof water bottles are vegan and cruelty-free - if you needed another reason to feel good about yourself!
Leave plastic bottles in the sun, or reuse them for more than a few days, and tiny particles of plastic erode into the water you’re drinking. While these particles are invisible to the naked eye, they’re very real and can potentially be very harmful, leading to conditions including cancer. By using a hypoallergenic, reusable bottle, you keep plastic out of your digestive system and protect yourself against such risks. The BKR Glass Bottles are food safe and easy to clean. These leak-proof water bottles don’t let water out or impurities in - a winning combination!
Buying a reusable water bottle might initially seem like an expense. However, when you consider how many plastic water bottles it will save you buying over the coming months and years, it’s actually a valuable investment. Experts predict that owning a reusable water bottle can save you US$250 a year - that can be a whopping 5000% return on your investment. Buying yourself an eco-friendly water bottle suddenly doesn’t seem so expensive now, does it?
Mix other drinks on the go
BRK Glass Bottles don’t have to be used solely for drinking water, you know. The easily cleanable and leak-proof water bottles can carry whatever drinks you choose: squash, fruit juice, infused water, iced coffee and many more. When you’re finished, it couldn’t be easier to wash and dry them up to regain their neutral taste. When it comes to packing picnics and treating yourself, you can't beat a leak-proof water bottle. Never get caught without a yummy, hydrating drink again!
Be a trendsetter
Let’s face it: there’s nothing stylish about carrying around the same plastic bottle you’ve been drinking from for a few days. The only thing even less stylish? Looking like the person who couldn’t care less about the environment, buying multiple single-use bottles at every opportunity. The BKR Glass Bottles are desirable from an ethical perspective but they’re also fun, colourful and stylish to carry around. Whether you chose the 500ml or the 1-litre glass and silicone bottle, they come in a range of stylish colours including navy and lilac. The plain designs feature a simple heart graphic, or you can opt for a soft, spiked bottle which makes for easy grip whether you’re out and about or on the treadmill.
For style, ethics, health and your finances, an eco-friendly water bottle makes perfect sense. The BKR Glass Bottles don’t miss a trick: they’re hypoallergenic, food safe and cruelty-free. They also make the ideal birthday or Christmas gift for eco-conscious friends and family members. With this much style, sass and convenience, there's no excuse for using harmful plastics.
So... Which colour will you choose? If you're stuck, there's no need to stick to just one!
