It’s giveaway time! I’ve teamed up with WAKEcup to offer one lucky winner the chance to get their hands on a Zero Waste Lunch Set, which consists of a vegan lunch bag, and a reusable water bottle, coffee cup and straw. To enter the giveaway, simply login to Rafflecopter below and follow the instructions.
Before then, let me tell you a bit more about WAKEup and the prize. Originally created to offer stylish alternatives to single use cups, WAKEcup now has a range of products – bags, wallets, cups, flasks, straws etc – which are made from sustainable products. With a big focus on reducing single use plastics and protecting the environment, WAKEcup also give an impressive 10% of profits directly to their eco-charity partners, The Marine Conservation Society.
The Zero Waste Lunch Set brings together four of WAKEcup’s best sellers into one handy bundle. As the set is sustainable, reusable and eco-friendly, it’s a brilliant option for those looking to cut down on single use plastics at lunchtime – plus, let’s be fair, I bet it’s a nicer looking alternative to whatever you’re eating and drinking out of right now!
So, what’s in it? Well, the Zero Waste Lunch Set consists of four practical, stylish and sustainably sourced items:
- Vegan lunch bag – Washable, lightweight and the perfect size for your lunch, the bag is also insulated and comes with a magnetic clasp and handle. It has a contemporary brown paper bag finish which gains a patina (like leather) with everyday use.
- Water bottle – A 450ml reusable water bottle made from organic bamboo. It has a no leak, screw top and a stainless steel double inner wall which keeps water ice cold for up to 8 hours or hot drinks warm for 4 hours and an infuser for loose leaf tea.
- Coffee cup – A 420ml reusable coffee cup made from sustainably farmed bamboo and stainless steel. It has a 100% recyclable polypropylene screw lid with a flip up catch and a thermal insulating double wall which keeps coffee and tea hot for an hour.
- Straw – An approx 20cm bamboo straw which is reusable, recyclable, compostable and unique in colour and size.
With so much more awareness about how we’re destroying the planet, I think it’s really important to consider our individual impacts. We’ve been trying to do our bit – although we could and should do more – to reduce our impact on the environment.
This has included the likes of walking instead of driving, using reusable wipes / nappies, recycling everything we can and buying LED bulbs instead of halogen. All very small changes, but ones that can have an impact – particularly when it is replicated in every other household. What’s that saying – ‘”It’s only one straw”, said 8 billion people.’
As such, I was really pleased when we received a WAKEcup Zero Waste Lunch Set in exchange for hosting this giveaway. They look great, are well made and, ultimately, are helping to change and improve our habits when it comes to reusing.
For instance, as the missus takes lunch into work each day, she’s been loving the lunch bag as it’s a handy place to store her food and is a marked upgrade on her Tesco bag for life! She’s also been taking the coffee cup for an early-morning brew on the drive into work, which not only fits into the cup holder properly (her old cup didn’t!), but it also doesn’t leak (her old cup did!).
But that’s not all. The WAKEcup water bottle now give us the perfect receptacles for a hot or cold drink when we’re on a family day out. It keeps our drink the temperature it should be, doesn’t leak and means we save money as we don’t have to buy the drinks ourselves. This works particularly well with hot chocolate when exploring the great outdoors in the current cold weather.
Finally, L is currently going through a habit of wanting to drink all of her drinks with a straw, so the bamboo straw keeps her (and therefore, us!) happy and means we’re not carelessly just throwing away plastic at the end of every day.
