Before departing on my grand adventure to the Comoros, which you can read about here, one of the top things on my to do list was to purchase a sturdy waterbottle which would survive travel to the distant, middle of nowhere location my new job was in.  Moheli Island, is the smallest of the three Comoros Islands with some 35,000 inhabitants and 24h power exclusively at Laka Lodge thanks to the beauty of solar energy. I chose to get myself a pretty, blue, insulated hydroflask. Highly recommended if you do not need a filter. Here at Laka Lodge, the eco resort I work as a Scuba Diving Instructor at, depends on UV filter technology to ensure all our customers have clean drinking water.. Plastic Free!

Oh also, in case you are new here, plastic is my nemesis and I try and encourage everyone and anyone to decrease their use of plastic. Why? Just a quick overview

  • 38 billion plastic water bottles end up in landfill every year
  • That one bottle can take over 400 years to degrade
  • Just about every marine animal is in danger from injesting or becoming entangled in plastic

I have written up many posts about plastic waste management, quick and easy alternatives to plastic, how to travel plastic free, how to upcycle tshirts into bags, my favourite plastic free beauty products and how I helped rescue turtles from plastic and a full free guide to living plastic free!
