Why We Chose It: A progressive move without a step back in functionality
Capacity: 1 litre
Nalgene’s widemouth reusable drinking bottles have long been a classic item in the outdoor world, the thing is, they’ve always been plastic, and plastic ain’t great, right?
Now, finally, Nalgene have come up with an eco-friendlier way of creating their products. We’ll assume they took so long as they didn’t want to rush out anything substandard, and in fairness it doesn’t seem like they have.
“We can confirm that it’s just like the old Nalgene bottles we know and love.”
Their new SUSTAIN range of drinking bottles is made using a new recycling technology that manages to transform wasted single-use plastic, once destined for the landfill, back into durable, clean and functional materials, ultimately offsetting the use of fossil fuels and lowering greenhouse gas emissions. Good stuff then.
Apparently the process involves a breaking down of waste plastic back into its basic chemical building blocks, thus allowing plastic materials to be recycled again and again.
