Sturdy. Functional. Honest. The tireless companion for all true outdoor fans for whom no trail is too far and no mountain too high. The high-quality, recyclable aluminum bottle is extremely light, robust and can be conveniently carried with one finger. And it is 100% leak-proof. Even with carbonated drinks and upside down, whenever you need both hands free. The material is free from harmful chemicals, such as estrogen-mimicking substances and phthalates – for safer and easy drinking enjoyment.

Why plastic doesn’t belong in the marine environment?

  • Old fishing nets and rope can entangle seals, sea birds, cetaceans and fish and kills them slowly. Reports of entanglement have shown to affect 135 different marine species.
  • Large nets can carry on fishing (we call this ghost fishing) forever and could kill all kinds of animals, from fish to whales, with no human to intervene and release them or haul them in. It is needless.
  • Plastic doesn’t biodegrade like organic material and will just keep on breaking down into smaller and smaller pieces that could take hundreds, if not thousands of years to degrade. These small pieces can be eaten by wild life and may enter the food chain. Recent studies prove that even plankton can eat tiny plastic fragments.
  • Plastics absorb harmful toxins in seawater that can accumulate up the food chain. Chemicals added to plastics during manufacturing to give them specific properties can also leach into the marine environment or organisms.
  • Animals and birds mistake plastics for food and eat it. The example everyone always uses is turtles mistaking plastic bags for jellyfish. This plastic will stay in the animal’s stomach, as some species can’t regurgitate or pass it, and will eventually be killed by it.
