A More Creative Way to ‘Dispose’ of Disposable Water Bottles

Of course, we recommend that you don’t even use disposable water bottles and fuel the Disposable Water Bottle Beast.  However, we are realistic – sometimes you don’t have a choice and water is one of those things humans can’t put off for too long.  And, sometimes your town’s recycling facilities are just a joke.

So how about Art?  Check out this blog post from Blogher.com where she highlights artists who recycle disposable water bottles into jewelry, eco-art and home accessories.  Pretty amazing stuff.

For reusable water bottle art, check us out at ecosumo.com.  The artist’s will still have plenty of material to work with!  Peace…ecosumo

What a great TWIST!

We have a new member to the Ecosumo family of products – the TWIST line.  Twist is a focused line of products bent on helping you clean up everything from the walls to the floor to the dishes.  And we’re going to say this now – we never even thought that a sponge or dishtowel could look stylish…but these guys pulled it off.

Check out there Loofah Scrubby.  The Loofah Scrubby works on all your simple cleaning needs, but its made extra tough to handle the hard to clean pans after a cheesy dish or a burned casserole (not that you’re not a great cook…it just happens sometimes).  It’s got sponge on the inside, and super scrubby loofah on the outside.  It’s also all-natural and dye free.

Or get Naked while you clean with the Naked Sponge.  By Naked we mean without chemicals, colors, and any of the adulterated stuff found in those ugly old yellow and green sponges.   And there are 3 sizes of Naked-ness to have ready to combat your dirt.

And don’t neglect the Dish Dumpling.  Described as a “nugget of sponge power”, this agave-wrapped cutie-pie is dye-free and biodegradable.  Seriously, its so adorable that stains won’t fight back (puppy eyes just met their match.)

Check out all the new sponges and cleaning items at the ecosumo site.

And here’s little tid-bit – don’t throw away the packaging.  In an effort to decrease waste, Twist’s pacakging can be turned into bird-feeders by following the instructions on the inside.  Kudos to Twist for imaginative environmentalism!

Don’t Throw that Bag Away!!

Because it’s reusable, Silly!  And it’s reusable because you’re ever so thoughtful and mindful of your environment, style, and wallet.  Ecosumo has over 2 dozen choices of stylish reusable bags for shopping or travel or picnic-ing or…insert your need here.  Most importantly though, having a reusable sack around stops the use of disposable plastic bags…and then you can put your reusable water bottle into your reusable bag and help us battle the Diposable Water Bottle Beast!

Check out some of our killer selection:

1. THE FLORA BAG is a green alternative with their lightweight, portable, waterproof bags. Each one holds the equivalent of two supermarket plastic bags, thanks to reinforced seams. The Flora bag draws its inspiration from the colours and shapes of pristine Australian rainforests, bringing a dash of summer to any season. A fun, yet fashionable way to shop! The pouch is small enough to fit into a glove compartment or a medium to large handbag.

2. THE BAMBOO BAG is an eco-friendly alternative to disposable shopping bags that have caused so much damage to the environment worldwide. Plastic bags clog drains and cause flooding. They pollute rivers and streams, killing animals and destroying plantlife. They take years to photodegrade and have a very short life span.

3. THE HEMP BAG – the hemp plant produces the strongest natural fibre known. With no known insect enemies and a high resistance to disease, there is no need to use harmful pesticides in cultivation. The hemp bags are printed with vegetable based inks and are all packaged a recycled cardboard box. A strong eco-friendly alternative, and a great gift idea!

Forget our 2cents…Here’s Ecosumo’s 20oz’s

Okay, so, yeah – we like to see our name parading around on the side of a reusable water bottle.  Forgive us for wanting to be associated with cutting down on waste and hydrating the nation.  Seriously though – our Mom’s would really appreciate if you got yourself an ecosumo reusable water bottle so they can point it out to their friends and say “Isn’t my boy all grown up?”

And then there’s the whole save the planet thing that we all love so much – carrying 20 0z’s of fresh water in your ecosumo reusable water bottle means:

1. Having nearly 3 of your recommended 8 doses of water on you at all times.

2. Stainless Steel is pretty slick for those of you who appreciate a clean style.

3. IT’S NOT DISPOSABLE!  DESTROY THE DISPOSABLE WATER BOTTLE BEAST!

25oz’s to Freedom – The KOR ONE Hydration Vessel

Some people need more impetus to kick their disposable water bottle habit and get on the reusable water bottle kick.  So, since ecosumo is claiming the title of Reusable Water Bottle Heroes, we’d like to promote a few other attributes of the glorious reusable water bottle – specifically the KOR ONE Hydration Vessel – to compel you all to get your cape and cowl on to help defeat the Disposable Water Bottle Beast (and at over 60 million thrown away per year JUST IN AMERICA, yeah…it’s a Beast.)

1. 25 oz’s in one bottle – That’s 3 of your 8 needed glasses of water sitting right beside you or going with you as you ride your bike around town or hit the trails for a hike or…  You get the point.  You have mucho capacity in your grasp.

2. Style – Face it, we like to look good.  And for those of us who were born looking like me, you have to buy that.  So, I carry the KOR ONE Hydration Vessel so that its sleek design and sensuous color reflect on me as a stylish, debonair Urbanite.  …or, yeah, it just looks damn cool and won’t do a thing for my social life.

3. Smarts and Compassion – The truth is that when you’re rocking a reusable water bottle, your sending a message to everyone around you.  And that message is that you’re a thinker who cares about the health of your planet and your own body.

Get your KOR ONE Hydration Vessel today by clicking HERE or on the image below.  Peace…ecosumo
