The sustainable water bottle by KBC and Mizu. KBC for Clean Oceans

Help us to avoid plastic waste with sustainable water bottles:

Disposable bottles cause a huge amount of plastic waste. Some of the KBC Centers (for example KBC El Gouna in Egypt, KBC Parajuru in Brazil or KBC Dakhla in Morocco) are located in places that do not yet use waste management strategies in the form of refillable bottles. At the same time, the tap water is not suitable for consumption, so it is dependent on the purchase of drinking water in disposable plastic bottles. At a kite center such as KBC El Gouna (with an average of 150 guests and 40 employees), around 200 empty plastic bottles arrive every day. That's 73,000 a year! The plastic bottles end up in the garbage, when loading garbage disposal unfortunately often on the road and then blow in the worst case into the sea. We want to tackle this problem and dispense with disposable plastic bottles. The aim is that drinking water can be offered at all KCB Centers. A returnable bottle of stainless steel can be refilled again and again and has a very long life.

We offer a suitable bottle in cooperation with our partner Mizu.
