Eco For Life very kindly sponsor our holiday camps with fresh, bottled water that can be refilled time and again without ever leaching chemicals into the water.
As we know oil is a finite resource and is running out – and bottles made from oil are now seen as not only bad for the environment, but also our well being. The complete alternative is Eco For Life, the bottles made completely from plants, yes that’s right plants; a completely sustainable resource. As crops grow they consume harmful greenhouse gases such as CO2.
The Eco for Life oil free bottles can be composted at home in around 12-24 months! The bottles undergo a two-step process. First, the moisture and heat in the compost pile attacks the polymer chains and splits them apart, creating smaller polymers and finally lactic acid, a fully sustainable source. They can also be sent to Waste for Energy sites where they produce a high temperature and burn without releasing pollutants.
Would you prefer to drink out of a bottle made 100% from plants, that emits 60% less carbon and uses 50% less energy during production, can be used again and again, is fully compostable and if sent to a waste-to-energy facility at the end of its life simply emits the carbon the plants captured in the first place….
…. or a bottle made from fossil fuels (with all of the associated problems to actually get them out of the ground), that cannot be re-used for fear of leaching toxins into your water, uses far more energy to create, emits far more carbon and if burnt emits harmful toxins? Oh – and clogs the rivers, waterways and oceans, contaminates every part of nature and takes hundreds of years to break down (if at all)?
Yeah, a pretty easy one isn’t it!?
Eco. For. Life.
