Reusable water bottles is what we are all making the switch too, right? I always have one with my one-the-go. But what about all of the plastic of the water bottles that we have? Although they can be used again and again, they can break or crack, and when that happens, will need to be replaced. The best solution, and one that I have been introduced to recently is a plant-based water bottle, made from completely natural materials, as well as sustainable materials. The S’wheat Bottle is the world’s first sustainable water bottle, but is it worth it? Read on to hear my thoughts and find out how you can also sign up to get some early-bird discounts and freebies, as the bottle isn’t going to be released until May 2021.
S’wheat sustainable water bottle
The world’s first reusable water bottle, made from plant-based materials, is made using naturally grown bamboo and wheat straw, hence the name. It was created by two people looking to make changes in this area and only used plant-based materials. It is such a novel idea and really hope that the bottle takes off! It is a great way for us to improve our plastic usage. A reusable water bottle is great, but a reusable water bottle that is plant-based, is best.
S’wheat bottles are not only made from plant-based materials but the brand also give back to the environment. For each bottle made, it saves around 20 pounds of plastic from the ocean, the same as 360 single-use plastic bottles. Having just watched ‘Seaspiracy’ I know just how important this is, and it is great to see. Another great thing about the brand is that they want to make every purchase to really make a measurable difference to the environment. So for each bottle sold, S’wheat plants a tree, and a really novel idea is that you can track the growth of your tree in real-time and find out where in the world it has been planted. This is such a fab idea, and means that your purchase with S’wheat will really go on to do good things.
The bottles are also ethically produced, made from sustainably sourced materials, and carbon neutral, as well as the good stuff of giving back to the planet.
Does it keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot?
When you’re out and about, having a water bottle with you is a must. But does it help to keep your water cool, or your hot drinks hot? The bottle has an eco-thermal wall which helps to keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot, so it can be used for a variety of needs – I really like this about the bottle as lukewarm water when you’re out and about is not the one! Having tested this out, especially when exercising, the bottle has kept my water cold, so it does exactly as it is designed to do.
The bottle is well made and you can tell just how durable it is. It is versatile, BPA-free and also easy to clean. I like the no-spill spout where you drink from, and the versatile hook, to keep your bottle secure when attached to a bag. There are a range of colours too, so there really is something for every member of the family to choose from!
The bottle itself isn’t launching until next month, so you can get some rewards if you sign up to the brand’s waitlist. When you sign up to their waitlist (all you need to do is enter an email address), you are then given a unique link. This link can be shared with friends, and you will earn points for friends that also sign up the waitlist using your link. The points that you earn can mean rewards, the first of which is when you earn 3 points (equivalent of three friends signing up). The rewards and freebies are all eco-friendly, so there is no need to worry about it just being junk that you’ll get.
Have you heard of S’Wheat before? It would be great to hear what you think! Remember, if you sign up the waitlist, you can earn some rewards and freebies, so why not share with your friends? You can check the waitlist out and sign up here: https://www.swheatbottle.com?kid=1HCB7E.
