The Cleaner World Campaign

Posted by Bottle Boy on

CLEAN BOTTLE FOR A CLEANER WORLD. Here at Clean Bottle we believe in a whole lot more than just making great water bottles. We believe in cleaning, preserving, and restoring the natural environment. Single use plastics have done enormous damage to the world around us, but by restricting and eventually eliminating their use, we can help to preserve the earth for future generations. This is why we are so pleased to announce our new "Cleaner World Campaign".

As part of the Cleaner World Campaign, Clean Bottle has committed to donating 2% of after-tax profits to charitable organizations that help to clean the planet's oceans, rivers, lakes, forests, mountains, deserts, and beaches. Come back and visit us at the end of 2019 and read our Cleaner World Report where we will describe to our valued customers exactly where we've donated the proceeds from each sale and how our chosen organizations are helping to create a Cleaner World.

4 Reasons to Ditch Your Disposable Water Bottle

Posted by Bottle Boy on

1. Save Money!
Bottled water costs 300-2,000 times more than tap water.  One gallon of tap water costs $.002 per gallon while a gallon of bottled water costs $1.22.  To put that in perspective, drinking 8 glasses of water EVERY DAY for a year comes in at $.50 while the same daily usage of bottles water costs $1,400!

2. Environmental Cost 
Transporting bottles water is not easy.  Due to water’s high density, transportation, processing, and refrigeration requires over 50 million barrels of oil, enough to fuel 1 million cars for a year.  Imagine one quarter of a bottled water filled with oil, thats how much is required to produce and deliver a single bottle of water.  Moreover, 80% of single use plastic bottles end up in landfills instead of recycling centers, and decomposition takes at least 450 years.

3. Public Health Concerns
Bottled water does not require anywhere near the same levels of regulation as tap water.  Ironically, nearly 40% of bottled water comes from municipal water systems.  In other words, although bottles water is literally exactly the same as tap water, it costs up to 2000% more and comes out of tax payer’s pockets to begin with!  The only time the FDA regulates bottle water safety is when sold across state lines, and that only comprises 30-40% of all bottled water sales.  What this means is a disturbingly large percentage (22% according to one study) of bottled water violates state health limits.  The majority of disposable plastic bottles contain BPA which has been shown to interfere with hormonal levels and reproductive dysfunction.

4. Convenience 
Once you make carrying a reusable water bottle around a habit, you will notice how readily available water sources are!  Save yourself repeated trips to the store by making the switch.  If you are skeptical of tap water’s safety, please remember utility company’s are legally required to test water purity for hundreds of chemicals every month.  And if you are still wary then feel free to make an inquiry into your municipal water utility and they will be able to provide you with their certification.

5 Boston Start-ups You Should Check Out

Posted by Bottle Boy on

Silicon Valley is known as the heart of the Tech world, but Boston is quickly becoming the main hub of the Consumer Goods industry.  We've been loving some of these start-ups for a while and wanted to share our favorites with you!

Forsake Shoes:

Inventing a new piece of footwear doesn't happen often, but that's just what Forsake has done with their line of Sneakerboots.  Rugged footwear that can stand up to miles on the trail and in the backcountry, but styling that doesn't look like you're on your first Outward Bound trip.  We love these shoes because they look as good out in the woods as they do hanging out in the bar afterwards.  You can check them out at: Forsake.com

Janji Running Apparel:

Most people run for themselves.  Janji believes in running for another.  10% of every sale goes towards constructing, implementing, and maintaining clean water projects in countries of need.  Each season's performance running clothing is inspired by a different country with the donations going to that country or region.  We love their apparel because it looks amazing and helps great causes.  You can check them out at: Runjanji.com

Box Brew Kits:

Have you ever tried brewing your own beer at home?  It's a lot of fun, but the equipment is mostly plastic buckets and tubes which can be pretty unsightly sitting in your kitchen or living room. Box Brew Kits thinks you should be proud of your brewing so they make a line of handcrafted wooden and glass brewing kits and equipment.  Their beer, wine, and kombucha brewing kits look so good you'll keep them out in the open as a piece of art!  We love these kits because they look like fine furniture and have every piece of equipment you need to become a brew master. You can check them out at: BoxBrewKits.com

Fortified Bicycle:

There's nothing worse than riding your bicycle to the store to do some errands and returning to find some part of it has been broken or stolen. Fortified Bicycle makes rugged commuting bikes that can stand up to city life, but more importantly are damn near impossible to steal.  All parts are screwed and locked on, even the lights, so Johnny-bike-thief is gonna have a tough time with a grab-and go, plus Fortified bikes even come with theft insurance, so they've got you covered no matter what happens!  We love them because we can commute through the city with peace of mind that our steed will still be waiting for us when we return.  You can check them out at: Fortifiedbike.com

Biena Foods:

Snacking should be tasty and satisfying, but why not healthy too!  Biena Foods offers up the best in healthy snacking with their roasted chick pea snacks.  With flavors ranging from Habanero to Barbecue to Cinnamon Crunch, even Chocolate Covered chick peas, you won't be able to stop munching on these.  But hey, you don't need to stop, they're packed with tons of nutrients and they're all-natural!  We love them because we can go back for seconds and not feel guilty! You can check them out at: BienaFoods.com
