I am not bragging or anything but I am one of those people that don’t have to force themselves to drink water. In fact, it is pretty much all I drink. I do treat myself to an ocassional soda when we go out to eat but mostly I am drinking water or coffee. I love the convenience of water bottles but worry about the impact they are having on the environment. So when I was asked to write an article about the new plant based water bottle from Dasani I jumped at the chance to learn more about it.
Plant Based Water Bottle
DASANI® is taking steps to reduce its impact on the planet with a major innovation in bottle design. PlantBottle® packaging is made from up to 30% plant-based material that replaces some of the non-renewable petroleum or fossil-based resources used in conventional PET plastic. Still designed to be 100% recyclable, it helps save our world’s precious resources.
Since its introduction, DASANI® has reduced the weight of its bottles, because lighter weight bottles require less plastic, which helps to conserve natural resources and lower CO2 emissions. In fact, our current half liter DASANI® bottles contain 45% less plastic than our original 2001 bottle.
This is only the beginning of our quest to help design a future where every plastic bottle is made from materials that are 100% renewable as well as recyclable.
I have to admit I am really, really impressed with the fact their bottles now have 45% less plastic now. How awesome is that? I love companies that see the impact they have on the environment and do something active to prevent it. While I will still use my reusable water bottle the new plant based water bottle makes me feel a little better about buying the convenience of just grabbing a water and go. It would be so NICE to not have to filter water before filling up my bottle. Plus the new shape of the plant based water bottle makes it so much easier to carry.
