As an organisation, we are acutely aware that we need to do our bit to reduce our use of single-use plastic, especially as the waste plastic crisis continues to grow, with millions of bottles filling our landfill sites and polluting our oceans, both of which causes widespread environmental damage each year.
Our first project has been the banning of plastic water bottles on our premises. In their place, we have sourced a stylish, on-brand, personalised re-usable water bottle that each member of our team has received for use in the office and further afield. A bottle for life, if you will.
All new additions to our team will now receive a new, personalised water bottle as part of their on-boarding. A bottle that is safe, healthy, lightweight and re-usable.
It wasn’t easy finding the right bottle for our business and it took us some time to get right, but we are pleased that we have managed to find a bottle that ticks all of the boxes, providing our team with a handy source of refreshments throughout the day.
A key factor for us was to having an integrated straw system, ensuring that any spills and damage to hardware is minimised, while also ensuring the design was leak-proof and condensation-free.
The result is a superb stainless-steel water bottle that is visually very impressive, while also being lightweight and secure. A water bottle that everyone loves and one that can be found at every desk.
We now look to build on this endeavour and uncover further steps that we can take to lower our environmental footprint by adopting business policies that support environmental practises.
