The Blem Bottle : Real Sustainability Made Easy

Introducing Blem’s unique, new sustainable water bottles
Here at Blem we’re known for our top-notch beach towels, but today we're excited to introduce an entirely new product that we’re adding to our range. Meet our new bottle
You’re probably wondering what’s so good about these bottles that would entice us to veer from our love of beach towels and add a completely different kind of product to our exclusive range. Well, here’s the deal, these bottles are extremely sturdy, highly hygienic (read on to find out the secret to this), well insulated and they’re a truly sustainable solution. They’re available in a range of super stylish colours too.
Tell me more about how Blem’s sustainable water bottles are good for me and good for the environment!
Sturdy and well-made
Crafted from high-quality stainless-steel, our new bottles are made to withstand everything that life throws at them. Drops, falls, knocks and bumps are highly unlikely to make a single dent in these bottles, so they are perfect for outdoor lovers, sports fanatics, mums on the run, office life and general everyday use.
A healthier option
Many studies have shown that BPA found in plastic water bottles can have a devastating effect on the human body (source: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0890623813003456), especially when it comes to hormone disruption. Food grade stainless-steel, on the other hand, doesn’t contain BPA or other toxic chemicals, is easier to clean and keeps food and beverages in better condition for longer.
It’s also important to note that stainless-steel is a non-porous material, which hinders the growth of bacteria and mould when compared with porous materials like plastic. Your stainless-steel bottle will certainly stay healthier for longer.
Insulated for versatile use
The innovative double-wall, vacuum insulated nature of our snazzy new bottles allows them to easily keep drinks icy cold in summer and toasty warm in winter. It is this same technology, paired with their stainless-steel make that also means our bottles are not simply for drinks. They can be used for soups, sauces, dressings and a range of other liquids (and non-liquids like dry spice mixes too!).
Many other reusable bottles are not made to hold different types or temperatures of foods and liquids, so we took it upon ourselves to make sure we went for the level of insulation that would allow for the most diversity for users.
Ergonomic and practical design
These bottles have been designed to suit allllll kinds of lifestyles. The shape and size of these bad boys have been designed to fit comfortably in hand and easily scootch into cupholders, backpacks, handbags and gym bags. A sturdy handle is perfect for attaching to bags, prams and other items so you can keep the bottle safely in your possession at all times.
Easy to clean for optimal hygiene
Now, here is one of the features we are most excited about with our new bottles as it truly does set them aside from any other reusable bottle out there. In order to keep the stainless-steel internal walls clean and hygienic, we’ve added a handy twist-off bottom, allowing easy access for cleaning utensils.
Most reusable, insulated bottles are thrown out after just a few years of use because they start to get smelly and grow mould and other harmful substances as they age, due to poor access for cleaning. Now, you can safely hang onto your bottle for much longer and reduce waste in the process.
Real Sustainability Made Easy
Speaking of waste, we hate it. The sustainability factor of these water bottles is off the charts. If we’re hoping to reduce the almost 3 million tons of plastic that we produce in Australia per year (source: https://www.wwf.org.au/news/blogs/the-lifecycle-of-plastics#gs.woez1v), we need to start utilising sustainable, reusable and recyclable options.
Unlike plastic and other materials used to make water bottles, the food grade stainless-steel we use to make our bottles is entirely recyclable and has been made from recycled materials.
It’s not just about the materials we use to make these bottles either. It’s the subtle sustainability minded features included, like the bottom that unscrews for easy cleaning to help promote an extended lifetime or the vacuum insulation that makes these bottles such all-purpose problem solvers, leading to less need for plastic single-use containers.
So, what are you waiting for? Get stuck into these awesome new bottles to feel good about what you’re putting in your body and what you’re sending out into the environment.
