activ-R eco-friendly water bottle

You may have read our previous blog post on the importance of eco-friendly corporate merchandise, where we explained the importance of changing to eco-friendly merchandise, and our environmentally friendly range here at i4c Publicity. 

In this blog post we will delve deeper into our Eco-friendly sports bottles and how they are a better alternative to other plastic options. 

Plastic Water Bottle History

Water bottles are something that most of use day to day, not only for outdoor or gym exercises, but if you work in an office then you probably have a water bottle to drink. 

However, the majority of water bottles that are available on the market are currently made out of plastic, that although can be recycled, a large amount of it still ends up in landfills. 

An Eco-Friendly Alternative

Our Activ-R water bottle is made from Sugar Cane Ethanol. This is a sustainable product that has zero impact on the Amazon rainforest and food chain, and the Ethanol also reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90% compared to conventional fuels – further helping to make a more sustainable world. 

The bottle can also be recycled at the end of its life through normal channels, to be remade into something else. This means that you can use your water bottle without the fear that it is damaging the environment and the world that we live in.

4. Travel Mugs

They are a great companion for the morning commute, meaning not only does the individual see your branding – but so do many others. Travel Mugs are a great way to get maximum exposure, whilst adding value to the customer and the environment around them – reflecting well on your business.
