As of 2017, one million plastic bottles were purchased across the globe each minute, not a good course for our planet, but with the debut of Blue Planet II, the cultural shift from single use plastic has been widely talked about.
Reusable bottles are on the rise, with people choosing to cling on to their sturdy bottles rather than chucking plastic after every use.
We want to take the idea further, and so we’ve teamed up with B1G1 to make our step towards a healthier planet go even further.
For families in Cambodia, the threat of unsafe water is real. Cambodia has over 9,000,000 cases of diarrhoeal disease which costs the nation $448 million a year. One of the easiest ways to combat poverty and disease is to provide access to clean water sources.
Access to safe drinking water is the foundation for the issues of health, education, food, and livelihood. Every purchase of a Re:Fresh bottle provides a day’s clean drinking water for a family in Cambodia.
This water is provided via the means of a Bio-Sand Water Filter that lasts up to two decades or more and is able to provide for an entire family. A Bio-Sand Filter is a point-of-use water treatment system adapted from traditional slow sand filters.
So you can know that with every purchase of a Re:Fresh bottle, you’re going a little bit further in making our planet a better place to be.
