Still, Sparkling and Sustainable Water on the Set of 'Raised by Wolves'

How one company's hydration trailer saved more than 100,000 plastic water bottles from being used during production of the new HBO Max series. Plastic single-use water bottles have become so commonplace on film and TV sets that sharp-eyed viewers earlier this year spotted one in the background of a scene in Little Women.

Bluewater är det svenska bolaget som numera säljer vattenflaskor modell high-end med helt rätt tänk

Vatten är livsnödvändigt för alla levande varelser. Men vi både slösar med det och skapar onödiga berg med skräp av engångsflaskor vi köper det i (även om det mesta ändå återvinns). Svenska Bluewater, som är kända för sina vattenrenare och luftfuktare, har tagit fram vattenflaskor som både gör gott åt andra som saknar vatten (en liter färskt vatten doneras per såld flaska) och som ska hålla för användning och påfyllning länge, länge (företaget räknar med att var och en av deras flaskor sparar 1 kg plast).

Vattenflaskor från Bluewater

Sommarvärmen slog verkligen slagit till mot Sverige i ett par veckor och ingen var lyckligare än jag! Vi får hoppas att värmen snart är på väg tillbaka igen. När det är så här varmt är det extra viktigt att få i sig ordentligt med vätska. Vatten är bästa törstsläckaren. Sedan får man gärna komplettera med Pepsi Max lime eller Nocco som är mina favoritdrycker. Är tyvärr rätt dålig på att dricka vanligt vatten, men nu ska det bli ändring på den saken. Jag har nämligen fått pröva vattenflaskor från Bluewater.

In the time it takes you to read this sentence, experts estimate that we will have purchased over 150,000 single-use plastic bottles around the planet. With over 1 million single-use bottles changing hands globally every minute, much of the plastic degrades into microplastic and ends up in our oceans and food chain.

You could be eating a credit card a week!

From the water we drink, the food we eat, and the air we breathe we could be ingesting massive microplastics, equivalent to 5gms or a credit card a week, according to a WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) study, ‘Assessing Plastic Ingestion from Nature to People’ Reacting to the findings, Bluewater, a global leader in water purification technology and solutions, called on countries, to urgently tackle the alarming rate of plastic pollution.
