THINKING OUTSIDE OF THE BOTTLE

This year alone, the UK government have proposed two new taxes designed to change our behaviours of buying beverages.

Needless to say, more and more customers are growing more conscious of how their purchasing behaviours are affecting the world around them and are actively making positive changes.

So why not utilise on this wave of forward-thinking momentum and promote your brand using environmentally friendly merchandise options.

BEATING THE LATTE LEVY

Did you know that only 0.25% of disposable coffee cups actually get recycled, and 2.5 billion disposable cups are thrown away each year in the UK alone? It’s for these reasons that the UK government proposed a 25p tax on takeaway coffee cups, ahead of a possible ban.

With many coffee giants; such as the likes of Starbucks and Costa, starting to give discounts to their customers for using their own mugs and tumblers, it won’t be long before the rest of the UK and their £9bn coffee habit joins suit.

OCEAN SAVING PROMOTIONS

It’s predicted that by 2050, the amount of plastic waste will outweigh all of the fish in the ocean. A truly terrifying estimation.

With an estimated one million birds and 100,000 sea mammals dying per year as a result of dumped plastic waste, MPs have called for a tax on plastic bottles to help prevent this ecological nightmare. In a recent article, Plastic Oceans Foundation gave tips on how to prevent plastic entering the ocean. One of the discussed ideas was for people to purchase metal water bottles to carry their drinks.

Designed to be handy and reusable, metal water carriers are a fantastic promotional tool to put your name to. With up to one-litre fluid capacity, our range of metal sports bottles provide an eco-friendly way to carry your drinks, whilst still remaining stylish.

Unlike the taxable disposable plastic bottles, metal carriers stop chemicals from leaching into water, meaning that your drink is fresh time after time, use after use. Available in a variety of shapes, sizes, colours, and styles; and with countless promotional branding opportunities, find what product suits your brand image most in our latest online catalogue. For some customers, metal bottles may not prove to favourable over their plastic counterparts. To ensure that your customers are happy and your brand remains environmentally conscious, we offer a range of promotional bottles made out of 100% recycled plastics and are BPA free.
