Thirsty? Thought so.
Weve been having a pretty good summer (weird, huh?) and with these rising temperatures comes an insatiable thirst.
We all know by now that single-use plastic bottles are the work of Satan, and despite the fact that a lot of plastic can be recycled, a whopping 91% plastic isnt recycled, ending up in landfill instead.
Here, it can take up to 1,000 years to decompose, and the problem is that a staggering one million plastic bottles are purchased every single minute.
Its our responsibility to put the brakes on this, by voting with our wallets. Instead of spending loads of money on bottled mineral water, why not treat yourself to a chic reusable water bottle and chug tap water instead?
When you think about it, were so incredibly lucky to live in a country that has safe drinking water coming out of the tap, so we may as well make the most of it.
Here are some fancy water vessel options that youll be proud to wrap your lips around.
