Single use water bottles are one of the worlds main causes for plastic production and over 52% of plastic we produce is chucked away. Everyday over 8 million pieces of plastic pollute our oceans and now there is over 5.25 trillion macro and micro-plastic pieces floating in European oceans. These are some scary numbers. I have been using reusable bottle for some time now, but like most sometimes make a bad choice in buying bottled water from the shop, from this day forward I am making the pledge to make this change for myself and my family.
I am a sucker for a beautiful bottle? Who’s with me? I have been after a replacement bottle for work and my adventures with the kids for some time and after lots of perusing on the internet late at night when I should really be snoozing I have made a little list of some I think look fabulous below! Do you have one and which is your favourtie? I’m going to be making a sneeky purchase soon!

I love all of the above, I particularly like the stance that Chilli’s are making to help promote reusables and clear our oceans, they have an array of beautifully illustrated designs in the collection (and the normal range too!) I also love the colour prints on all the Swell bottles, but alternatively love the simplicity of the Soma and Eva bottles.
The cups look perfect for work and taking cups of tea on the go to meetings or travel, I particularly love how the rCUP is made from recycled cups and is a very affordable price… HELP, how do I choose! Haha! Let me know your favourite?
