Travelling around the world and experiencing different cultures is one of life’s glorious gifts. These adventures, unfortunately, do come at a cost to the planet. In an aim to return the favour, and to thank the planet for giving us natural wonders like the Grand Canyon, The Great Barrier Reef and the Amazon Rain Forest, we have partnered with Traveleyes.
It is not often we get approached by a company as unique as Traveleyes. So when Traveleyes got in touch and asked about working together to help make an environmental impact for the good, we were definitely intrigued.
Traveleyes are a world unique travel company. They pair sighted and visually impaired travellers together on amazing adventures all over the world. The sighted travellers share their sight, guide and describe the world for those with visual impairments. With over 15 years’ experience and travelling to over 60 destinations, Traveleyes offer a chance to see the world differently.
The company have taken blind and sighted travellers across Mongolia, sailed yachts around the Greek islands, hiked the Camino De Santiago and tandem-cycled the length of Holland – all in the name of sharing the adventure!
Water-to-Go have partnered with Traveleyes to encourage more people who travel to not purchase single-use plastic water bottles and to provide a sustainable solution. Our 3-in-1 filter system can eliminate all microbiological contaminants to well in excess of 99.9%. This means you are never far away from drinkable water and by refilling one of our bottles you are making a huge environmental impact.
Only 1 in 5 plastic bottles are recycled and bottled water cost over 1000 times more than tap water. When Travelling we think it’s convenient to buy bottled water from the shop but that one bottle took 3 times the amount water to produce than it does to fill it.
Water-to-Go is committed to reducing the damage to the environment caused by the amount of single-use plastic bottles. Plastic water bottles can take between 400 and 1000 years to decompose and many end up polluting our rivers and oceans. It is essential we all do our bit to protect the planet and cut down on our plastic usage. A very easy way is to use a Water-to-Go bottle; just one of our 75cl filters is the equivalent of 400 single-use plastic bottles. Just think of the difference that could make.
Through our partnership with Traveleyes, we are offering 15% off Water-to-Go bottles and from each bottle sold, a percentage will be donated to Sightsavers, a charity which Traveleyes have supported for many years. Sightsavers work with organisations in third world countries to help reduce preventable blindness.
