Alternatives to Single Use Plastic Bottles
There are many other alternatives to single use plastic bottles, view some popular choices below!
Reusable plastic bottles are an option, but if you are striving for an eco-friendly future (like us!), we’d avoid plastic all together, including reusable plastic items.
Glass is another viable alternative to single use plastic bottles. Glass can be recycled, and reused time and time again. Of course, glass is heavy and likely to break if dropped.
Metal water bottles are one of the most practical options you’ll find in your searches. They are both reusable and recyclable. You can find metal water bottles all over, especially in coffee shops such as Starbucks & Pret A Manger.
