13 stylish, reusable water bottles to cut back on plastic waste

In the UK alone, every year we use more than 35 million plastic bottles. Get yourself a refillable bottle, stat, and you’ll instantly be saving plastic.

From scientists discovering that the Great Pacific garbage patch is now nearly three times the size of France, to the news that plastic waste looks set to treble within the decade if we don’t act now, the ongoing conversation around plastic waste has left us feeling very concerned for the future of our planet.

Twelve million tonnes of plastic rubbish is being dumped into the oceans every single year and a large contributing factor to the mounting waste is plastic bottles. 

Of course, we’ve all popped into our local corner shop or supermarket to grab a bottle of water when we’re feeling parched, but it’s single use plastic containers such as these that are damaging our planet in a devastating manner. 

Get yourself a reusable water bottle and help save the planet, sip by sip. 

It’s absolutely paramount that we act now to cut down on plastic waste while there’s still hope of reversing some of this damage. This is something that’s already proving promising, after the introduction of the 5p charge for plastic bags has seen an approximately 30% drop in plastic bags on the seabed.

In order to continue seeing encouraging results in relation to the 35 million plastic bottles we use every year, we’re imploring one and all to invest in a reusable water bottle.

Not only do they look super snazzy on your work desk and encourage you to keep hydrated (which let’s not forget, is also very important),  they will help you to cut down on buying disposable plastic. 

Check out our edit of gorgeous reusable plastic bottles, from stylish designer numbers to those adorned with cheeky slogans and cute illustrations.
