DRINK WATER! BUT NOT FROM PLASTIC BOTTLES!
We decided to take on the fight against the masses of plastic garbage! Especially inferior disposable plastic bottles are in our opinion ecologically unjustifiable. While every year hundreds of millions are produced and bottled, they are by no means a suitable packaging for drinking water. 250g CO2 are released with every litre water bottled in plastic bottles. A PET bottle needs almost 500 years to decompose and releases noxious substances such as plasticiser into the bottled drinking water. In Europe less than 50% of the plastic bottles soled will be recycled. These are more than enough reasons for us to stop the retail of plastic bottled water at our camp.
THE WATER-REFILL STATION AT OUR SURFCAMP
Portugal’s tap water is sterile and free of pollutants. In order to make it more durable chlorine is added to it, which has a negative effect on the water’s taste. That’s why we have installed a high-end Katadyn® filter and set up a water-refill station at our Camp. Around the clock you can now refill your water bottle with tasteful drinking water to keep your body liquids stable. The times when you had to buy plastic bottled water are over. Free drinking water for all! That’s how it should be!
THE PREMIUM STAINLESS-STEEL DRINKING BOTTLE FROM MADE SUSTAINED
If you already own a sports- or outdoor-activity bottle bring it along to your surf-vacation! If you’re not yet equipped with a sound drinking-bottle we’re happy to present to you our robust “Drink Water” bottle.
On our search for a sustainable alternative to plastic bottles we encountered the surfing crew of Made Sustained. The small, Netherland’s based, company has set its heart on making sustainable products. In them we found the perfect partner to create our Mellowmove “Drink Water” bottle. Together we also aim to spread and live the pledge “Surf against Plastic” and to inspire as many people as possible to live the change.
