KIWI EXPERIENCE'S ECO PRODUCTS

Posted by Joshua Whelan on 11 October 2017

We here at Kiwi Experience have been aware of a huge waste problem regarding plastic bags, disposable cups, and plastic water bottles.

 

 So we stepped up to the challenge and created our own reusable eco products.

 

 

 

Plastic Bag facts 

Did you know?

  • 160,000 plastic bags are used globally every second! 
  • 5 trillion plastic bags are produced yearly. Side by side, they can encircle the world 7 times.
  • The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, which is a floating landfill of garbage in the Pacific twice the size of Texas, is mostly composed of plastic.

 

Ever think about not using a plastic bag when getting your groceries? How about something more environmentally friendly, stronger, and definitely more kiwi? Our Jote- tote bags are 100% made of burlap fabric which is fully biodegradable and reusable. The perfect substitute for plastic bags, which are known to take up to hundreds of years to break down. Think about how many two-minute noodles you could fit in that?!

Coffee Cup facts

Did you know?

  • 1 million disposable cups end up in landfill every minute
  • Most disposable cups are lined with polyethylene, contaminating the recycling stream.
  • Most disposable cups cannot be recycled

 

 

First we drink coffee, then we do the things. Like yours to go but don't want the guilt of adding your cup to that massive landfill heap? The ultimate travel companion, this express coffee cup will help with all the early mornings! Made out of a tough BPA free, food-grade polypropylene which is dishwasher safe, and a with a heat resistant silicone band and screw-on lid, you won't want to use anything else.

Water Bottle facts

Did you know?

  • Plastic water bottles can take between 400 and 1,000 years to decompose.
  • Only 1 in 5 plastic bottles are recycled
  • We spend on average $588.00 on water bottles each year

 

 

Plastic water bottles are a huge contribution to the landfill's waste. You know you could be awesome like us and get a Kiwi Experience exclusive stainless steel water bottle. Don't they look cool!  Well, they are cause they're great for keeping your drinks ice cold and they'll save you money, so help us help the planet and choose to reuse!
