Literally having giant islands of plastic waste floating in the middle of the ocean is probably an accurate indication that we humans aren’t doing something quite right. In fact, it would be an understatement to say that the environmental damage caused by non-biodegradable plastics is a serious problem. Luckily, some businesses are trying to do something about it.
From its headquarters in Oslo, Norway, Ocean Bottle is tackling the plastic problem on two fronts. First of all, it offers a high-quality alternative to plastic bottles that is made from stainless steel. Anti-leak, BPA-free, and dishwasher-safe, the Ocean Bottle features dual openings for ease of use and a handy carry loop for convenient transport. Fully insulated, it’ll keep your hot drinks hot and your cold drinks cold.
In addition to discouraging the use of plastic bottles, Ocean Bottle has teamed up with The Plastic Bank to facilitate the collection and recycling of plastic bottles that already pollute the environment. In fact, for every unit it sells, Ocean Bottle funds the collection of 1000 plastic bottles.
