HYDRATE FOR FREE with Hydro Flask

Image for article HYDRATE  FOR  FREE with Hydro Flask

It’s hard not to be aware of the growing outcry about single-use plastic. Taking action, a new campaign is gathering momentum to provide free drinking water, wherever you are, whenever you want it.

The campaign, spearheaded by Refill UK, allows people to fill re-useable water bottles with tap water for free at thousands of locations across the country. It’s in response to the movement against single-use plastic that sees tens of millions of plastic bottles used every day in the UK, with only half making it to recycling. The project started in Bristol back in September 2015 when Natalie Fee, founder of the marine charity City to Sea, witnessed an increasing volume of plastic bottles washing up along the River Avon. She was inspired to introduce a number of water fountains across the city. But these are expensive to provide and upkeep. Now businesses including cafes, pubs and restaurants are joining in by placing a sticker in their window saying they’re happy to refill water bottles for free, without the pressure to buy anything else.

George Fisher, Costa Coffee, Leon restaurants and the National Theatre and Tate Modern have already signed up to the initiative.

To help you find them, Refill UK has designed an app with a map showing water station locations near you. There are now around 1,600 points across the UK, and the app allows you to add your own Refill station. Hydro Flask bottles offer the perfect way to refill in style; liquids stay icy fresh for up to 24 hours. 

The Sports Cap, which can be bought with a 21oz Hydro Flask Standard Mouth bottle, is the first-ever insulated sports cap specifically designed to keep water cold.

Our staff love these bottles for use in Winter and Summer and have shared their reviews with us before: John's Hydro Flask Review

Brand Focus... Haglofs   1 July 2019

A lot of thought goes into the brands we stock here in Fishers, everything from what is 'fit-for-purpose' both here in the lakes and internationally to what our customers ask for and now, more than ever, who are the most 'responsible' brands with strong sustainability messages. What do 'sustainable and responsible' mean? Well we're going to explain this, one brand at a time, starting with Haglofs.
