Since David Attenborough and the Blue Planet II, the UK’s concern over plastic waste and its damaging effects on the environment has rocketed. Many of us a looking for ways to cut down on the amount of single-use plastic we get through and switch to products made from more sustainable resources. Plastic bottles, takeaway cups and plastic straws are a great place to start.
Here are our top reasons not to buy bottled water, and the benefits of using a reusable water bottle.
So why not form a new habit and stay hydrated throughout the day with a practical, reusable vessel.
Coke bottles and soda bottles might be harder to give up, but even if you’re not ready to stop having your favourite soft drink, buying it in bigger containers and decanting is still a good first step, and it’ll save you money. Just make sure the bottles you do still buy are recycled.
Empty jars are great for drinking from at home and empty beer bottles and liquor bottles are fine for keeping water chilled in the fridge, but they may not be durable enough for taking out and about on a regular basis.
Whether you prefer to drink from glass water bottles or a stainless steel bottle to keep freshly made juices in top condition during your commute, we have a range of bottles to suit all requirements.
The market is full of water bottles. Collapsible water bottles, metal water bottles, reusable plastic water bottles, filter water bottles the list goes on. With so many reusable bottles on the market, it can be hard to know which brand to choose, we’ve selected the best water bottles based not only on their usability but also on the ethical credentials of the companies that make them. So when you choose a water bottle from Danuworld you can rest assured it’s not just the materials you can trust but the brand as well.
Unlike aluminium metal water bottles, both glass and stainless-steel are safe for use with acidic drinks. (Aluminium can leach when it gets hot or comes into contact with acids and aluminium exposure has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease.)
Punc bottles are a great way to go green with style. High quality, lightweight and ergonomically designed the PUNC stainless steel reusable water bottles have been designed to last a lifetime.

And as we are onto hot drinksâ€¦
Why should we use reusable coffee cups?
This is a hot topic now, with talk of coffee cup tax, but quite simply we need to change our ways for our world to survive. Disposable coffee cups are coated in plastic and do not break down, ironically making them anything but disposable. And apparently, the UK throws away 2.5 billion disposable coffee cups every year.
5 Reasons why you need a reusable coffee cups
Most coffee houses, especially coffee chains, will now give you a discount for using your own takeaway coffee cups so what is to lose, you could pay for your cup in a matter of weeks and keep on saving after that? Let’s save the planet one coffee cup at a time.
Joco reusable coffee cups, made from borosilicate glass, are lightweight, durable and microwave and dishwasher safe. These glass cups are super stylish and lovely to drink from. Unlike many mugs, they fit nicely under your coffee maker, and as they are glass can be easily recycled. Plus they are barista approved, meaning coffee shops should be able to make your drink without using a paper cup first and decanting and have a thermal silicone sleeve to keep your coffee hot and your hands cool.
Tea drinkers, we urge you to make your tea the loose leaf way with a Qwetch Insulated Stainless Steel Infuse Flask. Many tea bags contain plastic so choosing loose leaf is another way of going green. These flasks will keep your drink warm for 5 hours and are also great for fruit infused water to make your 2 litres a day a bit more interesting.
From saying no to pet plastic bottles and switching away from disposable paper cups there are many simple changes we can make to lead a more planet-friendly lifestyle. Saying no to plastic straws is another easy green choice to make to reduce plastic waste. Reusable straws are also known to contain Bisphenol A (BPA), a harmful chemical found in plastics that mimics the activity of hormones, most commonly oestrogen, which can lead to a number of reproductive disorders and other conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease.
Reusable straws again come in many forms. You can get silicone straws, smoothie straws, bamboo straws, reusable plastic straws and stainless steel metal straws. Some are bent, some are straight, some you get a cleaning brush, some you don’t. Again, we have chosen our favourites for their ethical as well as environmental credentials. All of which look great coming out of a mojito filled mason jar.
Stainless steels straws are a great alternative to single-use plastic or paper straws. Made to last and easy to clean thanks to specially designed cleaning brushes (plus they are dishwasher safe), they are perfect for sipping smoothies or cocktails. The fact that they are virtually indestructible means metal straws are ideal for camping trips and using when out and about.
Kids love straws and they can be very handy as you transition from sippy cups with little ones. Teaching your children the importance of switching to environmentally friendly products like reusable straws is a great way of helping them understand how the decisions they make can affect the environment and about the need to reduce plastic waste, reuse and recycle. Stainless steels straws are also non-toxic so they are better for their health and are perfect for sipping their favourite smoothie or milkshake. You could even try sticking them straight in an orange. Imagine doing that with a plastic straw.
And reusable straws aren't just great for children, although they can save a lot of spilt liquids. Reusable straws can be really handy for those with reduced mobility, in particular conditions such as arthritis which make lifting a glass and drinking difficult or painful. A nice set of stainless steel drinking straws with their own handy cleaning brush could make all the difference to staying hydrated. Unlike paper straws they don't get soggy, they are safe to use with warm drinks, just be careful they aren't too hot, and you know you are doing your bit to keep plastic out of landfills.
Reusable drinking straws are a great example of eco-friendly alternatives for the next generation, less plastic pollution and less pressure on landfills. Your grand-kids will thank you.
