WoW! This reusable drinking bottle is made from 100% ocean bound plastic (Recycled PET) produced by circular economy initiative Plastic Bank.
All of the old PET bottles are collected from the sea and rivers in Egypt and then returned to special collection points.
These bottles are then cleaned and ground down, making new bottles including the Blue Sea Bottle.
The people who collect the old plastic bottles receive money for the plastic that is returned. This helps support the local economy and some of the poorest people in the region.
This initiative also means that the children in these areas have the opportunity to go to school and gain an education they might otherwise not have had access to.
In addition, the negative environmental impact of plastic waste on our oceans is also being improved.
The cap of this bottle is made of bamboo. The bottle itself is not dishwasher safe.
The bottle has a capacity of 500 ml.
With the purchase of this product you support Plastic Bank® – an international organization with two main goals that concern us all: reducing poverty and reducing the plastic soup in the oceans that is an environmental catastrophe. Plastic Bank® pays people in developing countries to collect the plastic from the 5 most polluting rivers in the world. From this plastic waste, which therefore no longer ends up in the oceans, the so-called RPET material is made, which may bear the Social Plastic® label.
