Bottled Water

Choosing plastic free bottles

Reuse and refill is our ultimate goal, but we need to be practical for our members who are finding it hard to remove single-use plastic water bottles completely from their businesses.

The water bottle has been particularly difficult to eliminate completely for many, even if they're willing to eliminate the other key priority plastic items. That's where we come in! We're here to help you ditch the singe-use plastic water bottles and find you a better alternative!

Below you can find information on local suppliers that offer good plastic free water alternatives, making the switch from plastic bottles easy, while at the same time making a big impact on the planet.

The Problem with Plastic

Plastic can only be recycled 1-2 times
This means that plastic water bottles will end up in landfill anyway (if not littered), and can take up to 1000 years to break down.

Why Aluminium Bottles?

Aluminium can be recycled INFINITELY. 70% of aluminium water bottles in Australia are recycled (compared to only 21% of plastic bottles), and it uses 11% less energy and 32% less energy than glass bottles to chill in the fridge, compared to plastic bottles.

Why Glass Bottles?

A good alternative to plastic! Glass is an inert material and is recyclable. More importantly, if littered, it generally doesn't harm the environment.

Just be aware that many water bottles, even glass, have hidden plastics.

Please note: The below information is simply to help you identify products and suppliers. We don't recommend one over the other and we don't benefit financially from any brands or products we showcase.

Bluesky Beverages

These bottles are made from 65% already recycled aluminium, are non toxic, lightweight, and dishwasher safe (reusable).

The bottles are Australian-made and produced by Australian-owned Bluesky Beverages.

They have recently partnered with Tourism Noosa to create a bespoke NOOSA bottle to replace single-use plastics. The collection is a stunning representation of Noosa, both in and out of the fridge. Through their partnership, they have successfully eliminated over 15,000 single-use plastic bottles from the Noosa Region in their first 2 months.
