It seems that we are addicted to the economics, convenience and versatility of plastics. Yet, we don't manage it. In 2019, a million plastic bottles were being bought around the world every minute (source: Euromonitor). And this is set to increase by another 20% by 2021 (source: Euromonitor).
Plastic bottles are mainly used for water bottles, and the fact that millions of people are drinking hygienic water is wonderful, in itself. But, do we have to use so much plastic in doing so? Are there alternatives? We, at Association A Future without Rubbish, have created one - the 500 footprint flask ( '500ff')
The 500ff stainless steel flasks are infinitely recyclable, a true circular material. The carbon footprint of a stainless steel flask is the same as 500 PET bottles.
Why the 500ff logo?
We chose this logo because the carbon footprint of one 500ff stainless steel flask is the same as 500 PET bottles (source: New Scientist).
We thank you. Future generations will thank you. We believe Planet Earth would thank you too, if it could.
Association A Future without Rubbish is a not-for-profit members association, established and run in the same way as the acclaimed association of the same name Asociaţia Un Viitor fără Gunoi, in Romania !
