We are always looking to support initiatives that help towards reducing the environmental impact of plastic to provide a healthy environment for generations to come.

Following on from their successful initiative Sky Rainforest Rescue which helped to save one billion trees in Brazil, Sky are using their reach and coverage to inspire people to take action to protect our planet [1]. The aim of the Sky Ocean Rescue campaign is to reduce the level of single-use plastic from the oceans.

It is reported that more than eight million tonnes of plastic is thrown away each year and washed out to sea [2]. With plastic bottles taking an average time of 450 years to completely degrade, damage will have already been caused to our environment, marine creatures and will be seeping into our food and water.

According to Recycle Now [3], an average of 35.8 million plastic bottles are used every day in the UK but only 19.8 million are recycled. We can support the Sky Ocean Rescue initiative in our day to day lives by reducing the amount of single-use plastic we use. One of the main factors of the amount of plastic used is water bottles.

A number of plastic bottles have BPA (Bisphenol A) present. Research has shown that if BPA, an industrial chemical, is present in containers it can sometimes leak into food or beverages. The Food and Drug administration states that BPA is safe at the low levels that occur in food and beverage packaging however exposure to BPA, an endocrine disrupter, is fast becoming a concern due to the diseases it has been allegedly linked with.

From the start of the water bottle life cycle, the damage to the environment increases. According to National Geographic data, it takes approximately 24 million gallons of oil to produce one billion plastic bottles. The next step is transporting the water bottles to the consumers and keeping the bottles cold which use energy, increasing the level of fossil fuels. Some bottled water sold in the UK is sourced from overseas, meaning bottled water has even further to travel. Finally, once bottled water has been consumed, people do not tend to re-use and often do not recycle.

As a company who is focused on improving the environment, Triflow Concepts are experts in providing eco-friendly water filtration systems.

Triflow tap systems have a positive impact on the environment, especially when teamed with the BPA-free refillable Triflask bottle. Eliminating the need for bottled water, Triflow Concepts have an effect on reducing plastic waste. By opting for filtered water, your carbon footprint will be reduced.

The Kia Oval team have also supported the campaign by handing out 20,000 limited edition refillable water bottles during the upcoming 100th Test match in London [4]. Prior to the match, 20 free water fountains have been added to the ground to raise awareness of Sky Ocean Rescue and to encourage cricket fans to regularly use their refillable water bottles instead of resulting to buying single-use plastic bottles. 

 

Here’s how you can help:

  • Say no to bottled water and drink out of BPA-free refillable water bottle such as the Triflask
  • Recycle any plastic bottles you have and find
  • Choose paper bags over plastic carrier bags
  • Bring your own reusable shopping bag
  • Reduce everyday plastics such as sandwich bags by replacing them with a reusable lunch box or soap bottles by using a bar of soap
