The biggest environmental impact of bottled water comes from transporting water all over the world. This also disturbs the natural cycle of water. Clean water runs directly from the tap, so refilling a Retap bottle is an easy step to support the environment. Once the bottle reaches its user, it can be cleaned and refilled with tap water endlessly. This makes sure that there is no useless shipping of water.
Retap was initially influenced by reading about plastic islands in the oceans consisting mainly of plastic bottles. With the UN climate meeting 2009 in Copenhagen (COP 15) closing in, the founders became more aware of the negative impact of bottled water on the environment. They felt that something had to be done, so set their minds on designing a bottle that is especially designed for drinking tap water. A year and many designs later in the summer of 2010, they released the Retap bottle, and we’re very proud of this eco-friendly and beautiful product.
