Last week I had the pleasure of meeting Hanifa Choudhury, a local resident who has just started up a brand new company called Eco-Bottles Limited. Being aware of some of the dangers of reusing plastic bottles, mainly resulting from the chemicals used in manufacturing the plastic, and also conscious of the impact that consumption of bottled water has on the environment, Hanifa has come up with a superb idea to tackle both those issues.
Called the Eco Bottle, it’s made from 100% recycled materials and is completely free from ‘Bisphenol A’, a chemical used in normal plastic that can cause health complications from too much exposure to it. Furthermore, it’s also dishwasher safe and comes with a life-long guarantee. Clearly a great idea to tackle the downsides of reusing plastic bottles, Hanifa’s product is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint as well.
Already the East Manchester Academy have ordered 250 Eco Bottles for their students and I am aware that now one of the world’s largest multinational corporations is also considering buying Eco Bottles for its own employees. Hanifa’s product can be personalised to suit individual organisations and the scope for reducing the purchase of millions of plastic bottles to be replaced by reusable Eco Bottles is enormous.
