....or GreenER anyway!
I first saw bottles of water for sale on the streets of Paris when I was about 15 or 16 years old. I distinctly remember the feeling of horror and disbelief, thinking to myself ‘What a waste! People are paying for water! Are they mad? That'll never happen in Ireland ‘......(wrong again!).
Now, thankfully there's a move towards getting rid of single use plastics. Reducing our plastic use is definitely to be welcomed and something we at Wild Atlantic Sports are keen to be part.
Our main plastic use is disposable water bottles that we include as part of our (very popular and fun) bike tours. We've always recycled these, however, our goal for summer 2019 is to stop providing these altogether. HOWEVER, we still want customers to enjoy a refreshing drink of water en route.
We've chosen to buy a limited number of reusable bottles for use on tours. The dishwasher will give them a good scrub after every use and we'll refill them with (hopefully) filtered water. For anyone squeamish about using a pre-loved, but well washed bottle, there'll be option to buy one of our beautiful branded bottle. Priced as low as we can go!
We may also look at offering a small discount to customers who bring their own reusable water bottle.
Help us out! We're pretty much there on ordering bottles but need some suggestions on water filtration systems. We're looking for something that fits below the sink and is reasonably priced.....any ideas?
