Why two different bottle companies? Well did you know that 60 million plastic bottles end up in landfills and incinerators every day, yes EVERY DAY!! More than 8 million tons of plastic bottles in the sea each year and it is estimated that in the year 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the sea. We have picked these two companies as they bring something different to the table. Moon bottles are both ready for cold or warm, keeping your water cold for 24hrs and your coffee hot for 12hrs. One Green Bottle offer many different types of bottles to fit your needs. I love both these companies, keep an eye out for my full review on their bottles.
