We have heard it from the legend, Sir David Attenborough, Our planet is losing wild animals rapidly. More than half the planet’s wild animals have been lost over the last 40 years, a statistic predicted to increase to two-thirds by 2020. We couldn’t imagine a world without such incredible beasts as elephants, rhinos, or tigers, roaming the planet. Alongside threats such as poaching and habitat destruction affecting land animals, marine life is also being severely threatened by plastic pollution.
The ocean is predicted to hold more plastic than fish by 2050, and marine litter is known to harm more than 600 species, amid what some regard as the beginning of the sixth mass extinction of life on Earth. Plastic bottles play a major role in this pollution. Studies estimate that 1 million are purchased every minute across the world, with over 90% of these bottles not recycled. Well, not from me, Not since I got my Elephant Kudu Bottle.
Kudu has teamed up with two great wildlife photographers Ben McRae and Ashley Morgan to bring you the first bottle designs in the Wild Collection. I chose the Elephant design for myself for 2 reasons. the first is because I Love elephants, They are super intelligent and the way they move around is just extraordinary. The second reason is down to the charity this bottle supports, A minimum of 20% of the profits made from this bottle goes to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a charity super close to my heart. I was lucky enough to visit their sanctuary in 2017 and it was one that had a big impact on me to this day so I do everything I can to support this beautiful charity. Since having my Ellie bottle I haven’t bought a single bottle of water, I carry this with me everywhere I go, the gym, To work, In my car & on the plane too. Just look how CUTE it is though so how can I not! The bottle keeps liquid COLD 24hrs / HOT 12hrs, It is Leak-proof, condensation free exterior, Premium, BPA free, food-grade, 304 stainless steel, 100% recycled and recyclable packaging & holds 500ml of liquids. 500ml / 7.1cm X 25.8cm. I would LOVE it if you could purchase one of these bottles and better still, Tag Me & them in your sustainable selfies on Instagram
