Be A Part of the Plastic Pollution Solution: Step 3 - Drink On-The-Go
“It takes at least 450 years for a plastic bottle to completely degrade.”
Welcome to Week 3 of our Plastic Free July journey! In our previous blog, we talked about the benefits of bringing your own homemade lunches and snacks to reduce the amount of plastic waste. This week we will talk about a well-known source of plastic pollution - drinks on-the-go.
Klean Kanteen is a leader in reusable on-the-go products, especially flasks and drinkware. Their high-quality stainless steel, non-toxic and BPA-free bottles are a great substitute for single-use plastic ones. With a wide range of products in different sizes and colours, we are inviting you to make this simple switch with 10% OFF ALL Klean Kanteen (and On-The-Go) products this week, using the code ONTHEGO10 at checkout.
16 billion disposable coffee cups are thrown in a landfill each year because they cannot be recycled. There are easy ways to reduce the plastic coffee cup footprint. Due to its thermal performance, the Klean Kanteen vacuum insulated TKWide is the future of coffee on-the-go. The leak-proof cap assures the security of your drink. Besides a coffee mug, it works great as a water bottle, sports bottle and insulated cup. Instead of bringing different drinks holders when going out, working in the office or staying at home, this is the perfect all-rounder! And that’s not even the best thing. Many coffee shops offer a discount when you bring a reusable cup. So over time, your cup will pay for itself!?
Do you remember the plastic cups with lids that you get with every shop-bought shake, smoothie, coffee or juice from your local shop or van? More than 20 million bottle caps and lids have been polluting beaches around the world for the last 30 years. Insulated tumblers do the same job as the plastic cups (better - keeping your drink hot or cold for hours) but without polluting the environment.
The impact plastic bottles have on the environment is a well-known subject and we talked more about it in our blog “EASY WAYS TO REDUCE YOUR PLASTIC FOOTPRINT #1: REUSABLE BOTTLES”. Klean Kanteen’s classic water bottle designs help you to reduce the 36 million plastic bottles used by UK households every day. Small change for you. Big win for the planet 🌍
If you love climbing, hiking, the great outdoors or camping, the award-winning TKPro (Insulated Flask with integrated Cup) is the stylish sustainable solution for you.The TK Closure™ internal thread design, providing cutting edge thermal performance for both hot beverages for 28 hours and cold beverages for up to 90 hours, beats a plastic bottle any day!
Klean Kanteen hasn’t forgotten about the future change-makers. Their Kid Kanteen collection is stunning, practical and brings smiles to every child’s face with a unique and colourful design. These bottles are BPA-free, lightweight and safe for children. Equipped with a dust cap, the bottle is easy for children to use. The bright colours and fun graphics will soon make the Kid Kanteen irreplaceable friend throughout the day, encouraging children to stay hydrated!
We’re nearing the end of Plastic Free July and next week we will be tackling all the pesky plastics that lurk in our personal care products.
