Back in 2009, appalled by the level of plastic waste generated by single use water and drinks bottles, we researched the internet for durable, reusable drinks bottles and discovered ECOtanka!
We started to sell them with some success, although it was still very early days and most people weren't convinced the plastic issue was a particularly dire one back then. When our UK-based distributor stopped importing ECOtanka as their business took a different tangent, we were sadly not in a strong enough position to take over their role. We now are and are embarking on our new role as UK distributor for these beautiful, adaptable and versatile reusable bottles.
With different sizes available, interchangeable lids, single wall or thermos* options, protective and insulating covers and ranges for babies up to full-grown adventurous adults, there is a bottle for everyone, at any stage and in any situation in life.
- Ecological: Stainless steel 304 is clean, hygienic and, unlike aluminum, does not require an internal coating on the bottle. Stainless steel 304 is durable (about 110 years) and sturdy. Our ECOtanka™ is durable - falls, heat or cold will not harm them (although drop them heavily and they can dent or paintwork can scratch, they're not made of kryptonite!) ECOtanka™ - is truly a bottle for life.
- Safe & 100% BPA-free: ECOtanka™ bottles are made of safe, food grade 304 stainless steel (also known as stainless steel 18/8 or food grade). Stainless steel does not react with acidic foods and is therefore suitable for all types of drinks. It keeps your drinks fresh for a long time and maintains its quality. It is tasteless and odorless. Stainless steel 304 is 100% BPA-free, free of antimony (Sb), DEHA, DEHP, PVC and phthalates.
- Hygienic: Through the large opening, the ECOtanka™ can be easily cleaned with a bottle brush by hand or in the dishwasher (this does not apply to the painted models). If a residue has formed in the bottle, just put a teaspoon of baking powder in the bottle, fill with cold water, shake, let it work in and rinse thoroughly: the residue will disappear.
- Sustainable: Quality and sustainability are a matter at the core of our ethos. The use of an ECOtanka™ water bottle actively avoids plastic waste. The nature of the packaging we use avoids useless packaging pollution. We only use as much as necessary and as little as possible!
