Don’t be Wasteful
The average person generates about 4 pounds of trash a day and about 1.5 tons of solid waste per year. Americans make enough to fill Busch Stadium from top to bottom twice a year. This amount of waste equals about 200 million tons of garbage per year (source: dosomething.org)! I believe in the mantra, “have less and do more” and I think that this should apply to everything. Not just material items.
Everywhere I go, I bring a water bottle with me . I also don’t buy plastic bottles because of the pollution on our environment. Not to mention the devastating effects that plastic bottles have on our health. Only 1 in 5 plastic bottles are recycled and plastic water bottles can take between 400, and 1000 years to decompose (source: banthebottle.net)!

The Que Bottle is a collapsible bottle that is perfect for people on-the-go. It’s made out of 100% food-grade silicone and it’s shatter proof, leak proof and safe for hot and cold temperatures. It’s taste and odor free, dishwasher safe and light and compact. This bottle has been a dream to carry around with me every day. When it’s empty, all I have to do is collapse it, and stick it in my bag. They come in so many cool colors and they come in 12 oz and 20 oz bottles.
Besides the beautiful design, Que Bottle has a meaningful mission to create a community of sustainability and encourages exploration. They want this bottle to be your active lifestyle companion.
