The EcoBottle from Smartshake is made from cork and sugar cane biomass which otherwise would become waste, and manufactured using more than 70% renewable energy.
This means that the CO2 footprint for the manufacturing process is at net zero. The factory, located in western Sweden, is equipped with solar panels on the roof providing the building and their vehicles with green electricity. In fact, the CO2 footprint for bottles sold to Northern Europe is about -2.37 kg (per kg of material).
"Stay positive – go CO2 negative The best way to hydrate is to bring your own. Forget about buying bottled water or big-brand sugary sports drinks. The EcoBottle comes with the best environmental footprint you can get. It actually makes things better."
