We all know that plastic pollution has become an alarming global crisis, with devastating consequences for our planet's ecosystems. In an effort to combat this issue and promote sustainable living, initiatives like Plastic Free July have gained immense popularity since it began since 2011. In this blog, we will explore the significance of Plastic Free July and highlight various ways we can reduce plastic waste implementing our sustainable products into your daily routines.

Embrace Reusable Water Bottles:
One of the simplest yet most impactful ways to reduce plastic waste is by swapping single-use plastic water bottles with reusable alternatives.

Plastic water bottles are made from petroleum. In the U.S alone, it takes 1.5 million barrels of oil to meet demands. It is estimated that 1,500 plastic bottles end up as waste in landfills or thrown in the ocean every second! Swap to our stainless steel reusable water bottle instead. By choosing a reusable water bottle, you not only eliminate the need for disposable plastic bottles but also contribute to conserving our precious water resources.

Whether it's at home, picnics, or takeout orders, opting for a reusable cutlery sets can significantly reduce plastic consumption. Our eco-friendly sets are made from endlessly reusable stainless steel, ensuring a long-lasting and plastic-free dining experience.
