There is an increasing interest in reusable metal containers and packaging, and this is not just for beverage cans or water bottles. And it is not merely aluminum but also steel and copper, and even stainless steel. There are packaging developments and designs meant to replace throwaway plastic containers with a combination of metal and recycled plastic that significantly reduce plastic use. Here is one example of an everyday product and practice that we can all change.

On average, a person consumes 167 bottles of water a year. The amount of plastic generated for this purpose in totality is massive and dangerous for the environment. It is no secret that plastic is one of the biggest contributors to pollution and global warming. An eco-friendly alternative is a stainless steel or copper bottle. 

Everyone knows the importance and health benefits of a copper water bottle. Multiple brands are doing a great job of educating people on hydration. Here are a few reasons why a stainless-steel water bottle is the future of hydration and sustainability.

Firstly, a stainless-steel water bottle is more durable than a plastic water bottle. Unlike plastic, a stainless-steel water bottle contains no harmful chemicals like Bisphenol A (BPA) or antimony. It’s completely chemical-free, thus giving you cleaner and purer water without additives.

One of its cool features is that a stainless-steel water bottle is designed to shield your water from outside temperatures – ensuring that your water remains the way it is. If you pour in hot water, it remains in that state for a more extended period. That is why most of the drinking water bottles in the market have a triple layer coating, ensuring the exterior regulates the liquid’s temperature. 

In the long term, a stainless-steel water bottle is a one-time investment and would cost less than all the plastic bottles you buy the entire year for rehydration alone. It would bring down your careless spending, and you would help the environment at the same time. Brands like Root7 India have incorporated high-grade stainless steel with a middle copper layer for better temperature retention.

A stainless-steel water bottle is an indispensable option. One should consider switching to one and cut down drastically on plastic water bottles. There are various sustainable water bottles to choose from on the market. All of them focus on sustainability, better hydration, and stylish drinking. It is high time to make the switch.  

Now, instead of buying a plastic bottle after your lunch at work or buying one while shopping, consider investing and carrying an eco-friendly steel water bottle. 

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
