Today we’re excited to officially announce the launch of RAW Bottles. Our bottles have already featured at festivals including Glastonbury, Shambala and Port Eliot, helping to reduce their consumption of single-use bottles. Now we’re on a mission to roll them out to festivals, events and businesses who want to show their commitment to going plastic-free.
RAW Bottles founder Melinda Watson says: “We’ve already made huge strides with festivals to address the issue of single-use plastics, with over 60 festivals pledged to the Drastic on Plastic 2021 pledge. Now we’re taking the idea out to a much wider audience.”
Helping events ditch pointless plastic
Later this week, we’ll be showcasing the bottles at The Showman’s Show, where we’ll also be presenting a full program of RAW Talks on the theme of ‘Inspiration for pointless plastic-free events’.
The event, which takes place in the Hub Talks tent, offers a unique opportunity to find out the facts about why plastic is a problem, and what steps events can take to become free of ‘pointless plastic’.
RAW Bottles will join a range of suppliers presenting their plastic-free or plastic smart solutions and services, including Envirocup, Green Goblet, FRANK Water and Ohoo, an innovative packaging solution for drinks.
Why choose RAW Bottles?
Each year in the UK we drink 3bn litres of bottled water and 10bn bottles go to landfill! RAW bottles have avoided 17.5 million single-use plastic bottles over the past 5 years from being thrown into landfill and polluting our environment.
RAW is the only UK’s leading wholesaler of 500ml and 750ml high quality food-grade stainless steel bottles. We developed the RAW Bottle design with UK and Chinese manufacturers, and work closely with premium etching and printing companies based in the UK.
Every bottle sold not only tackles single-use, but also makes brands look amazing and helps to fund RAW Foundation’s global campaign work on this critical issue.
Take a look at our gallery of inspiration to see how your brand could look on our bottles.
