FLOW sustainability in black and white
Sustainability is not just another buzzword to us. In cooperation with the climate protection foundation myclimate, we commission regular assessments that show us how eco-friendly our products are – including the bulb FLOW drinking bottle. This much can be said at the start: the FLOW drinking bottle has performed very well.
In the latest sustainability report, the sustainability of FLOW compared to conventional PET bottles is calculated in specific terms. To do this, the use of a FLOW drinking bottle is weighed up against the consumption of PET drinks bottles over a period of five years. Both in terms of carbon emissions and the overall impact on the environment, the FLOW drinking bottle cuts a considerably better figure.
PROTECT THE PLANET WHILE YOU DRINK WITH FLOW
With the new bulb FLOW drinking bottle, your refreshment breaks won’t just be incredibly stylish and exclusive, but also more eco-friendly than ever before. As part of our commitment to sustainable use of resources, we offset the CO2 emissions generated in the production of FLOW drinking bottles by supporting a project run by the Swiss environmental organisation myclimate.
CARBON-NEUTRAL THANKS TO OFFSETTING
All the energy used in the production of bulb FLOW drinking bottles comes from renewable sources such as solar and hydro power. Locally based production also helps to reduce our carbon footprint. Unfortunately, we can’t completely eliminate carbon emissions from the manufacturing process, so we offset the CO2 that is generated by supporting a Swiss eco-project run by myclimate.
FLOW HELPS CREATE MORE NATURAL HABITATS
To offset our carbon emissions, we support a project that is protecting a 174-hectare forest preserve in Delémont District in the Canton of Jura, where no cultivation or lumbering will take place for 99 years. The increased biomass that results acts as a carbon sink, reducing CO2 levels in the air. The project also creates new habitats for endangered species.
STRONG CLIMATE PARTNER
We are committed to protecting the environment and conserving natural resources. That’s why we work with the not-for-profit environmental organisation myclimate on selected climate projects. In partnership with businesses and private individuals, myclimate’s mission is to build a greener global future. It is currently running over 100 climate projects in 30 countries, two of which we are actively supporting.
WHY REUSABLE BOTTLES ARE 50 TIMES BETTER THAN DISPOSABLE BOTTLES
A responsible approach to plastics and a critical analysis thereof are topics that concern us here at Innique continuously. With our products, we want to contribute to drastically reducing the quantity of waste produced. All our bottles are designed to be reusable and, with careful handling, you should be able to continue using them for several years.
In addition, we have conducted a study with climate foundation myclimate: if you avoid purchasing a PET bottle once a week for five years and instead fill a BULB bottle, more than 260 disposable bottles will be saved. At the same time, more than 60 times less CO2 will be released. Seen across the entire period, a BULB bottle impacts the environment around 50 times less than a disposable bottle.
REUSABLE VS DISPOSABLE BOTTLES
Environmental footprint if you avoid using 1 disposable bottle just once a week and fill a BULB bottle instead.
