Making a difference

There’s a lot in the news at the moment about plastic waste we produce. Most of us want to do something to help, but it can be hard to know where to start.

 Two of the biggest problems come from drink containers – single use plastic water bottles and throw-away coffee cups

For some time we have been selling a range of water bottles, including the ever popular and stylish Chilly bottles, and clever ones that fold away when they are empty. Carrying a refillable bottle is one of the best ways to avoid buying a single use bottle. It is just a matter of getting into the habit, and finding a bottle that you like and can trust not to leak into your bag (we’ve checked that for you – you can rely on the ones we sell to keep your stuff dry).

 But what about coffee cups? Many of us pick up a coffee on a regular basis, and maybe think that the cups are recycled, but actually less than 1% are recycled in the UK. If you decide to do one thing to reduce your impact on the planet this year how about committing to carrying and using a coffee mug.

 We think we have the perfect mugs… they’re practical, don’t leak, look really impressive, and show your love for National Trails.

 These thermal mugs come in 2 styles, a flip-top and a screw top. They have a thermally induced vacuum so will keep your drinks hot. The standard mug has a pressure release chamber so the lid can be removed easily even if the contents have cooled. The flip top design locks securely so it doesn’t leak and has a well-designed drinking spout.

 We’re impressed – Buy them herethe only tricky part is deciding which of the gorgeous colours to choose.
