One million single-use PET bottles are sold every minute worldwide. Even though these bottles are recyclable, very few make it into a new bottle. Instead 60% of these bottles end up in landfill or worse, our rivers and oceans.
The alternative to plastic bottles
How can we solve this problem? Quite simply, by reducing the number of single-use bottles being consumed. The easiest and most eco-friendly solution on the go, is to refill a reusable bottle from a drinking water station. A perfect alternative to plastic bottles.
Tap water is often very safe to drink and more and more filling stations are being installed in major cities around the world to ensure water is easily accessible.
There are different ways of producing reusable water bottles, for example using fossil-based plastic, glass or aluminium. Fortunately, there are also other more sustainable options available at an affordable price.
Sugar cane & local water
Bottle Up bottles are made from Sugar Cane, a bio-based and renewable source. The raw material is produced from pressing the sugar cane plant, while the traditional plastic bottles use fossil sourced raw materials like oil and gas
To make the production process as efficient as possible, Bottle Up look for water and bottling partners who are located as near to each together as possible.
As Bottle Up expands to more locations across Europe, they will make sure to replicate the same production process in each country: local partners working close together to reduce transport costs and the impact on the environment.
Bottle Up reusable water bottles
Bottle Up offer a 500ml reusable bottle, a great size for on the go drinking. As they are made from bio-based material and reusable, the bottles are more environmentally friendly than single-use plastic bottles. The bottles are easy to wash, safe to refill and 100% suitable for recycling.
As Bottle Up aim to target on-the-go consumers who are mostly active in large cities, they have designed beautiful bottles with city designs. These bottles have a unique font and colour, designed and chosen especially for specific cities in mind. Besides the city bottles they offer a more generic bottle with a WATER design in four colours.
The sales of Bottle Up support water projects set up by charity: water and environment awareness programs in Sri Lanka. This way reusable water bottles will not only help the environment, but also ensure that everyone in the world can enjoy safe and clean drinking water.
