It is well known that the state of the planet today is a sorry one. Recently, leading climate scientists warned that global warming can only be kept to a maximum of 1.5C for a dozen years. After that, even half a degree will significantly exacerbate the risk of droughts and floods that affect the world’s poorest. When it comes to saving the planet, everybody needs to do their bit. We’ve lined up Aria’s best eco-friendly products, so you can shop smart.
To Go Click Mug by Stelton
In the UK we use 7 million disposable coffee cups every day – that’s 2.5 billion every year. Due to their polyethylene lining, disposable coffee cups contribute to rising plastic waste levels. With talks of a ‘latte levy’ that charges customers 25p for using a disposable cup, investing in a reusable travel mug is a smart move – economically and environmentally! Travel easy with the To Go Click Mug by simply pressing the lid to open and to seal. Whether you are jetting off or grabbing a morning coffee, bringing your portable and reusable cup with you is a stylish way to help reduce single-use plastic.
Biobu Bento Lunch Box by Ekobo
When duo Bruno and Boo Louis launched Ekobo, its genesis was both a love of design and passion for the planet. The pair’s eco-friendly products are plastic free and environmentally friendly. The Bento Lunch Box is crafted from biodegradable bamboo fibre, and comes in a range of gorgeous colours. Carrying a lunch box is an environmentally conscious choice: it encourages you to reduce food waste by packing up your leftovers, and helps you cut down on plastic. Bon appétit!
Co-founders of memobottle Jesse Leeworthy and Jonathan Byrt grew up in a costal town south of Melbourne. While certainly not unique to Australia, they saw first hand the devastating effect that single-use plastic water bottles were having on our oceans and environment. Worldwide, 75 billion gallons of bottled water are consumed and only 1 in 5 are recycled. Memobottle understood that the best way to lead a social movement that ended the public’s reliance on single-use bottles was to create a truly convenient alternative. The memobottle is a premium, reusable, flat water bottle that is designed to fit easily in your bag. Its uniquely slim profile allows it to comfortably slide into the most compact spaces while still keeping you hydrated. Crafted from the highest quality BPA, BPS-free plastic, every memobottle sold also provides one person with two months access to clean water thanks to our partnership with water.org. Join the cultural revolution and say goodbye not only to single-use plastic.
