Toxic-Free and Planet-Friendly Water Bottles

IMG_7767

Recycling is more important now that ever. We’ve all watched Blue Planet recently and it’s time to change the way we use single-use plastics to help tackle the pollution in our seas.

In 2016, 3.20 billion litres of bottled water were consumed in the UK and typically bottled water retails at up to 500 times more than the price of tap water.

If like me, you’re often guilty of buying a bottle of water at the beginning of the week, then re-filling it several times a day, you could be putting your health at risk.

According to scientists, bottles of water can contain tiny cracks which could become breading grounds for dangerous germs such as norovirus.

There are simple ways in which we can help to reduce the amount of plastic bottles we buy, and the risks associated with them.

Ion8 Kids got in touch recently and sent across a sample of its water bottles for kids. This was very timely as we’ve just made the transition away from our toddler’s Munchkin beaker.

What I love about this water bottle:

I’m not usually a fan of pink and I feel slightly guilty in admitting that I haven’t bought my daughter any pink clothing since she was born (possibly flying the feminist / gender neutral flag to the extreme!) but I actually really adore this shade of pastel frosted pink, and she does too.

  • This water bottle has been designed for multiple uses and don’t contain any of the toxins.
  • Ion8 have designed their range of bottles made of BPA Free, phthalate free, non-toxic TRITAN®.
  • Tritan® is highly resistant to odours, can be easily cleaned and is even dishwasher safe.
  • It’s a really sturdy, structured and clearly well-made bottle – everything is made from high spec materials: the strap, nozzle and main bottle.
  • It’s easy to clean
  • The lips down and locks to prevent any spillages or leaks and the release button is easy enough to use for a two year old. We literally showed her once and she was on her way!

Ion8 Kids – £8.99 and a range of adult bottles are also available. Stockist information available from www.ion8.co.uk and www.leakproof.co.uk/
