The Benefits of Promotional Stainless Steel Water Bottles

The Benefits of Promotional Stainless Steel Water Bottles

In the course of a year, 38 billion water bottles are piled up in lifeless landfills across the world. To stay out of harms way, we need to stop burying our problems in our backyard. Instead, we must move forward with innovative ideas and eco-friendly alternatives to the growing problems associated with pollution and waste. With the adoption of promotional stainless steel water bottles in your life, the world is getting one step closer to its sustainable goal.

While many of the benefits of custom stainless steel water bottles pertain to environmentally friendly living, there are other important perks to be explored. Switching to promotional stainless steel sports bottles leads to a healthy earth and a healthy you. Typical plastic water bottles and nalgene containers can contain traces of the synthetic chemical Bisphtnol (BPA) that interferes with your body’s natural hormonal messaging system. New developments are discovered each day but none of them give the green light to plastic water bottles. Instead, people are urged to use promotional stainless steel water bottles that are BPA-free. These great custom BPA-free water bottles were created to keep their users healthy and encourage healthy living habits for the sake of our earth.

In an effort to make custom stainless steel sports bottles attractive to all, many special features and personalizations have been made available. Options like, attached promotional carabiners, built-in straws and an assortment of designs allow all parties to customize their ideal promotional stainless steel sports bottles. Some brand names have even created stainless steel sippy-cups for children. Raising children with fears of global warming can be constructive, but instilling an appreciation of the earth and providing children with alternatives, like custom stainless steel sports bottles is best way to ensure a green future in our world.

Using promotional stainless steel water bottles for promotional awareness events will help people to remember your environmentally friendly business’ name. These custom stainless steel water bottles are eco-friendly, pose no harm to you and come in many different styles, making it hard to believe that they’re also cost effective. But consider the amount of water bottles you personally consume in a day, have you contributed to the billions of water bottle trash each year? With custom stainless steel sports bottles, you’re encouraging sustainable living and giving your company the brand recognition it deserves.

Plastic Drinking Cups With Straws

Plastic Drinking Cups With Straws

Road trips call for preparation, so our car trunk always holds an emergency kit with extra clothing, space blankets, and food snacks. The cup holders below the dashboard always hold water, even on half hour trips – and that’s where this story begins.

Drinking Cups for Road Trips

We used to carry bottled water in the car, refilling the bottles at home. Then we learned too much: about the rapid growth of bacteria in those bottles; about the leeching of plastic into the water; etc. We decided to replace the bottles with drinking cups.

The options were not good, however. Some drinking cups didn’t fit cup holders. Other drinking cups didn’t hold much water. Some didn’t allow for quick sips. Others didn’t close tightly. Some were much too heavy!

We needed light, plastic drinking cups with straws.

The Discovery

That’s when we found Tupperware drinking cups. More specifically, we found Tupperware plastic drinking cups with straws! The company makes a variety of drinking cups that work for car trips. Each one, of course, has a virtually liquid-tight seal on top – and each one is dishwasher safe, so no bacteria!

Some of their drinking cups are more for picnics or hiking, with seals (lids) that have no opening. Those are great in backpacks, even if they tip over. Other Tupperware drinking cups make provision for drinking without removing the lid, and were just what we needed for road trips.

1. The “Insulated Tumbler with Drip-Less Straw Seal” was our choice. This 24-oz. drinking cup has double-wall construction to keep beverages cold or hot for hours. It fits the console cup-holder, and doesn’t tip over. The great “Drip-Less” straw lid minimizes leaks, even on sharp curves. We loved the fact that you use disposable straws in it, so no worry about hygiene there! You don’t have to hand-wash a special straw, or risk putting it in the dishwasher. Any standard straw fits, so you can always stop in a convenience store for more. Of course, the drinking cup itself is dishwasher safe.

2. The “On-the-Go Tumbler” would be great for children on long car trips. This even larger, 32-oz. drinking cup has a tapered base that fits most vehicle cup holders, and the seal eliminates spills. The “On-the-Go Tumbler” has two designs, each with a different picture on the side. One design features a hinged pop-open drinking top. Children don’t have to remove the lid to drink. They simply flip the top open or shut. The other design features a seal with “drip-less” straw opening like the one in the insulated drinking cups with straws that we chose. The liquid-tight lid has a hole for a disposable straw. It would be worth taking these into a fast-food restaurant, and pouring the children’s beverages into them.

3. If you take babies or toddlers on your road trip (those days are gone for us), Tupperware’s “Sipper Seal Set” would be a good choice. For that matter, these drinking cups would be great at home, too. On a trip, you could pack all four, filled and sealed, in a cooler. When your baby (over 6 months) or toddler wants a drink, you simply change out the storage lid for a sipper seal that lets children drink without spills.

The Guarantee

Although I cannot guarantee you will like Tupperware’s plastic drinking cups with straws as much as we do, I can assure you that Tupperware guarantees the products. If you get one of their drinking cups and it gets damaged in normal use, they promise to replace it free of charge for the lifetime of the product. I’m not sure if the drinking cup’s lifetime will be as long as yours, but the guarantee sounds good to me.

If you love road trips as we do, or if you just like to be on-the-go around town, you may want to look into Tupperware’s plastic drinking cups with straws. If I weren’t so busy, I might consider becoming a Tupperware consultant so I could sell them.

The Plastic Continent (And What You Can Do About It)

The Plastic Continent (And What You Can Do About It)

<!– @page { size: 8.5in 11in; margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } –>

Sometimes called the “Plastic Continent” and sometimes called the “Pacific Garbage Patch”, it amounts to the same thing – an island of floating garbage, most of which is plastic, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. But there’s a reason that some environmentalists are referring to it as a “Continent” — this island is twice the size of Texas. How big does that make the garbage patch? More than half a million square miles.

A few facts about the Plastic Continent:

The size of the Plastic Continent has doubled in the past five years

Fish, birds, and other marine life are found to have plastic in their stomachs

In the waters surrounding the Plastic Continent, plastic bits outnumber plankton six to one

What Can Be Done About the Plastic Continent?

As Good Morning America put it when they reported on this topic, “there’s no one silver bullet”. Recycling alone will not stop the Plastic Continent’s growth, because only 5% of plastics are recycled globally. Furthermore, plastic is not easy to recycle because of its melting point, which is much lower than other recyclables such as aluminum and glass. The low melting point interferes with the recycling process, leading much of the plastic tagged for recycling to be discarded.

And anyway, what happens to recycled plastics? What is it recycled into? Why, once again, it is recycled into items such as drink bottles, straws, plastic cups, and so forth – items that will inevitably be thrown away at a rate of 95% to every 5% recycled.

A clean-up of the continent presents its own problem: what to do with all the recovered plastic? Some of it can be recycled; some of it cannot be. That means it will end up elsewhere, such as in a landfill. Scientists have yet to agree upon the best way to eliminate the Plastic Continent.

Please Use Less Plastic

We were trained by eager 1950s and 1960s advocates of “progress” to lead a throwaway life. In 1955, Life Magazine announced that this new “Throwaway Living” would liberate housewives and lead to a better world. We were so well trained in those decades that today we find the habit of using plastic hard to break. But we can each do our part to reduce the amount of plastic being used. Here are a few suggestion:

Stop buying drinks in plastic bottles. There is mounting evidence that plastic bottles may be unsafe anyway, and the environmental toll is horrendous. Kick the plastic bottle habit, and drink your water the old fashioned way – from the tap or the Brita.

Get reusable grocery bags, and remember to bring them when you shop.

Don’t use plastic food containers. You can turn old spaghetti sauce glass jars into excellent food storage containers which are both safer and better for the environment.

Don’t use plastic sandwich bags, but if you do, wash them out and reuse them.

It won’t be easy to kick the plastic habit.  But we have to do it, or soon we will have no ocean left.
