Aquatina collapsible water bottles

December 20, 2011

I’ve recently discovered a great product by Aquatina – collapsible drinking bottles. I usually try and refill an old water bottle and take it out with me in order to avoid buying yet another plastic bottle. But most water bottles are hard to clean and after a few hot hand washes, start to get a bit brittle.

Aquatina say,

“Bottled water is just plain mad. First there‘s the production. It takes about a quarter of litre of oil and seven litres of water to produce and transport one litre of bottled water. Then there’s the disposal. Globally, we throw away 150 billion water bottles every year. Line them up (nose to tail) and they’d stretch to the moon and back…50 times! Very few are recycled. Most bottles end up in landfills taking decades to decay. We believe that drinking water shouldn’t hurt the planet. That means more taps, more fountains and less bottled water.”

Their bottles are:

  • Collapsible – the bottle is 1/3 of it’s original size once collapsed
  • PET and BPA free
  • Made from LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene – #4)
  • Wide neck for easy cleaning
  • Dishwasher proof
  • Made in England
  • Available in blue, pink, clear and green
