Camping, Festivals and Plastic Bottles
The great outdoors and the British Summer!
At one with nature, fresh air, green grass, maybe a stream or a river to sit by and contemplate life. Sounds idyllic, right?
Then, you decide that it’s time for a cold drink of water, so you reach into your cooler box and grab a bottle of water. And that’s when being at one with nature comes to a shuddering halt.
The problem with bottled water is, that generally, it comes in pre-packed, single-use plastic.
We know that these are a blight on our life, contributing to the mountain of plastic that pollutes our rivers, seas and oceans. Every minute, the equivalent of a rubbish truck load of plastic goes in to our oceans, it never decomposes and will remain there forever.
This is becoming more apparent thanks to the work of various organisations like Sky, through their Ocean Rescue
program, which is promoting and end to the use of single-use plastics, through the supply of refillable, reusable, water bottles, reusable coffee cups, and reusable straws.
This is all well and good, but when you’re camping or travelling, how on earth do you fill up your reusable vessel, whilst ensuring that the water you drink is as clear, healthy and as good for you as nature intended?
We might just have the answer with our range of eco-friendly, economical range of travel water filter systems and accessories.
For example, one of our most popular products, the Travel Berkey Gravity Water System can hold up to 5.7l (equivalent to nearly 12 bottles of spring water from a supermarket), can be packed in it’s own travel bag and is ideal also for caravans or even storing water domestically when, for example, the mains supply at home might not be available for a time. Fill up from any water source, any time, and have clean, safe drinking water in a matter of minutes! The supplied filters are durable and long-lasting, only needing a replacement every 22700 litres – equivalent to nearly 45000 bottles of shop bought water – just think for a moment how much single use plastic there’d be.
Alternatively, if you want something a bit more compact and you don't need more that about a litre of water at a time, why not consider the Go Berkey?
Whether you are camping, travelling, just wanting to reduce your use of plastic water bottles, or are a festival goer, this product could be exactly what you need. Did you know that plastic drinks bottles won't be available at Glastonbury 2019 for example? They are promoting 'refill, not landfill', so don't be left feeling dehydrated and thirsty, make sure you plan ahead! https://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/information/green-glastonbury/refill-not-landfill/
The filters in both of the above products can reduce or remove viruses, pathogenic cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, cloudiness, trihalomethanes, silt, sediment, heavy metals, foul tastes.
