hazel commented on Re-Imagining the Re-Filling Station

I really think refil stations are the future. They eliminate waste rather than relying on recycling. This idea works well with the bottle for life. Manufacturers of drinks such as coke are already looking at providing refil equipment rather than selling drinks in single use bottles. There would be nothing to throw away. Great idea.

hazel commented on Bottle for life

Hello Anna,
thank you for your interest. My bottle for life is actually metal not plastic, hence after 5 years it is still like new.
I agree that there would be options such as you mention. I am very open to suggestions. Plastic can also affect the contents I am told, if bottles are full of liquid and left in the sun or in the heat. Mine fits into the drinks cup holder in the car, and I don't worry about any plastic or chemicals leaching into my drink.

Hello Paul
I agree, and it would take some large organisations like coke to back the idea and get it out there to as many people as possible. A bottle for life goes hand in hand with refill water and drinks stations. I cannot believe we are not doing this already. We should have been doing this years ago.
The idea just needs backing and promotion to get people on board. I have no experience with promotions and working with large organisations. If anyone has any ideas as to how this works, I would appreciate their advice.
Thank you Paul for your comment and interest.
