The humble water bottle is turning into an extremely popular eco friendly promotional item! This is due to the convergence of technology and new environmental concerns. We can offer sophisticated, multicoloured printing on custom imprinted promotional products for a great price thanks to improvements in the printing process.
The environmentally friendly aspect of it is the result of an increased awareness of the ecological impact of bottled water. After being introduced to the mass market in the 1980s, bottled water sales exploded, as people wanted an alternative to the fluoride taste of the tap, along with a handy container to carry their water in. Unfortunately, disposable plastic bottles are a tremendous strain on the environment. Conventional plastic has one of the longest biodegradation cycles of any substance, and even recycling it consumes vast amounts of energy, as it must be melted, remoulded and shipped between disposal, recycling and remanufacturing facilities.
That’s why there’s a new movement to go back to the tap for drinking water. Compared to bottled water, tap water has far less environmental impact. It’s reduces the financial strain cities must undertake to dump or recycle millions of plastic bottles. In fact, the City of Toronto has instituted a ban on bottled water sales in city-run establishments just to bring home the importance of drinking from the tap.
