Embracing Sustainability: Why Icyblue is the Eco-Friendly Choice
Aug 04, 2023
In a world where 1 million plastic bottles are used every minute, the impact on our environment, particularly our oceans, is undeniable. Single-use plastic bottles contribute to pollution, with 91% of plastic never getting recycled and ending up in landfills and oceans. The consequences are dire, with projections indicating that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by weight, impacting over 267 marine species, including whales, turtles, and seabirds.
Plastic's downcycling and the formation of microplastics make it a persistent problem, affecting not only marine life but also the food chain, with plastic pieces finding their way onto our plates. The top 6 items found in beach clean-ups are all plastic, including drink bottles, caps, cigarette filters, food wrappers, plastic straws, and utensils.
Understanding the urgency to move away from plastic, Icyblue takes pride in its commitment to sustainability, offering a better alternative to plastic water bottles – aluminum. Aluminum is recycled twice as often as plastic, glass, and cartons, and Icyblue uses the most recycled packaging in the world. With an industry-wide recycling rate of nearly 70%, aluminum ensures a closed-loop recycling process, where material from one bottle can be transformed into another identical bottle.
Icyblue is made from an impressive 73% recycled aluminum material in every bottle, contributing to a circular economy. Unlike plastic and cartons, aluminum is infinitely recyclable, reducing its environmental impact significantly. The brand's dedication to environmental consciousness goes beyond recycling; Icyblue proudly holds the title of being the world's first certified Climate Neutral bottled water brand. It offsets all emissions created not only by its packaging but by its entire company operations.
By choosing Icyblue, you not only quench your thirst with refreshing natural spring water but also contribute to a sustainable future. Let's join hands and make a positive impact on the environment by embracing Icyblue's commitment to eco-friendly practices. Together, we can preserve our oceans, protect marine life, and create a better world for generations to come. Drink responsibly, drink Icyblue.
