Eco friendly bottles

With plastic consumption a major issue in today's climate, it's time to invest in a reusable, eco friendly alternative. Whether you're into hot drinks, cold drinks, or both, get your perfect bottle and help save the planet!

With the announcement that plastic bottles are to face a 22p surcharge in a bid to combat waste, we think it's about time we invested in some good old reusable cups.

When you think of a 'thermal mug', the ugly camping style springs to mind, but hey, it's 2018 and now there's some super pretty options just asking to hold our sweet, sweet coffee.

Equally, who said bottles for cold beverages had to be dull? Here are some of our top picks that we think would look fabulous in your hand!

1. Chameleon colour changing stainless steel bottle - £11.50

Chameleon water bottle

In a bid to encourage people to drink more water AND keep the planet plastic-free, this Kickstarter campaign is all about actual colour-changing bottles that react to cold liquid. 

With a choice of purple, peach or blue, the Chameleon bottles allow you to see exactly how much water is left in your bottle - thus informing you of how much you've drunk so far. We love!
