That Plastic Bottle or S’well?

Picture 7

Do you know the plastic bottle stats?

– Americans buy an estimated 29.8 billion plastic water bottles every year.

– Nearly eight out of every 10 bottles will end up in a landfill.

– Less than 1 percent of all plastics is recycled. Therefore, almost all plastics are incinerated or end up in a landfill.

– It is estimated that the production of plastics accounts for 4 percent of the energy consumption in the U.S.

Don’t buy plastic bottles! Instead get something like the S’well Bottle.

S’well bottles merge style and function with environmental and social consciousness. S’well bottles represent a new advancement in metals science, keeping beverages hot all day and cold well into tomorrow, using the highest quality stainless steel. They are non-leaching, toxin-free, and are virtually unbreakable, creating an unparalleled drinking experience. 

CSR Bonus:  S’well donates 10% of net sales to WaterAid to support programs that improve access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world’s poorest communities.

Holiday Gift Idea: The first-edition S’well bottle is engraved with the S’well motto and has a space on the bottom for personalization.
