5 GREAT THINGS FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
31 ELEPHANTS WORTH OF PLASTIC SAVED PER YEAR
Literally 112 tons of plastic saved on a global level, based on current volume estimations.
*based on the average weight (3.6ton) of a female African elephant
CARBON FOOTPRINT REDUCED BY HALF
That’s 50% less CO2 generated in the production of this bottle.
The bottle is recyclable. Did you know the cap is made of a different plastic to the bottle, so that it can be securely screwed on? That means the best way to facilitate the recycling process is to unscrew the top beforehand.
TRANSPORT IS MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY
Through the new bottle, transport is more efficient. To be exact: we can carry 10% more on a pallet, saving a whole pallet in transport for every 10,000 products shipped.
MORE SUSTAINABLE THAN OUR CURRENT BOTTLE
The reduced-plastic solution was discovered after a two year R&D process that examined other bottle alternatives.
