Every year, 50 billion plastic bottles end up in U.S. landfills. 200 billion bottles clog landfills worldwide. Disposable plastic isn’t just a problem, it’s an epidemic. In order to foster a healthier future – for our children, for our planet, and for all of our planet’s inhabitants – it’s vital that we try and kick the “plastic habit.” We understand that it’s not easy to always find viable options but when we have them it’s great. Here is one that we found. Modern Kids Design is proud to present an alternative to the plastic water bottle. Take a look at S’well, “reusable bottles that look good and do good.”
S’Well helps us all become better stewards of the environment with their stainless steel bottle. Lightweight, sleek, and simple, this seemingly basic reusable bottle, has the power to divert billions of disposables from the waste stream each year. According to Ban the Bottle, Americans use an average of 167 disposable bottles each year. By swapping these out for a single S’well vessel, you’ll be keeping our landfills clean… And solidifying a healthier future for our planet.
Made of non-leaching 18/8 stainless steel, S’well reusable bottles will keep your drink cold for 24 hours and hot for 10, enabling you to refresh during the summertime and stay cozy during the winter months. We love that feature! They are also impeccably designed and have a sleek silhouette and come in a nice spectrum of colors.
As with all of the brands we carry, there is an interesting backstory. Founder Sarah Kauss set out to create S’well in 2010 after listening to a lecture about the disposable plastics crisis. By merging aesthetics with social and environmental value, she is encouraging people worldwide to become change agents. S’well enables people to make impactful earth-friendly actions without spending a lot of time or money. And it all starts with a sleek, simple bottle.
In addition to providing a stunning and meaningful product, S’well is also a devoted member of the charitable community. A portion of their profits go towards organizations such as WaterAid, American Forests, and Drink Up. By sipping with S’well, you’re making a positive impact that expands across the globe. And, of course, when you shop with us through our Shop+Give donation program, 5% of sales will benefit the nonprofit of your choice!
