We designed it with you in mind. We believe that great design and a creative approach will drive positive change. 321 Water Bottles have been designed not only to look good but also to have the environment in mind.
The environmental impact of 321 Water has been carefully considered at every stage of its life cycle, from design, manufacturing, to the way you use it, as well as its disposal at the end of life.
Furthermore, this means that it follows all eco-design principles such as reduce reuse recycle. This is a design approach with special consideration for the product's environmental impacts during its whole life cycle.
Recycling, reusing, and making the most of a product is such an easy way to be sustainable.
Most water bottles can be recycled in some capacity; it can become quite overwhelming and confusing as to what different recycling codes mean and how different plastics, more specifically, can be surprisingly sustainable!
The 321 Water Bottle is fully recyclable.
Throughout our production and distribution of the 321 Water bottles, we make sure that all parts are as sustainable as possible.
What recycling codes will you see in our filtered water bottle:
You may see a number 7 recycling code on the bottom of your water bottle. But it is a common misconception that the number 7 recycling code denotes poor environmental practice and reusability.
The 321 Water bottle range is made from a relatively new plastic to the market known as Eastman Tritan. This polymer is thoroughly tested and certified with food-grade quality and long-lasting, reusable results. However, most important to us is the added environmental benefits in Tritan plastics' production and durable nature. Being relatively new to the plastic industry, the Tritan bottles are labeled with this "other" certification and code - 7, but what does this mean in the world of recycling?
(No. 7) Everything Else: The number, usually located in the center of the triangular recycle symbol, is called the "resin identification code" and is intended to facilitate the sorting of recycling materials.
Currently, resin identification code "7" is for "other" resins that are not defined by codes 1 through 6. Thus, some unrelated plastics can carry a code 7, including Eastman Tritan™ copolyester, polycarbonate, nylon, and even the newer bio-plastics.
Using a durable and reusable water bottle such as the 321 Water Filter bottle, your capability to reuse and recycle while still having a high-quality product and cost-effectiveness is genuinely possible.
Every part of your water bottle can be replaced and recycled, making this product the best water bottle on the market.
