The UK uses 7.7billion single use plastic water bottles every year with only a limited number being recycled.
Around 8million tons of plastic is leaking into the world’s oceans each year to be ingested by marine life, and by 2050 it’s been predicted the ocean will contain more plastic by weight than fish.
We are working with a number of organisations to help fight the issue of single use plastics. Find out more about our campaigns and how you can help by clicking here.
At BRITA we are passionate about taste. Using BRITA filtered water in your cooking and preparation of hot/cold drinks can make a real difference.

Water makes up 70% of our body weight. Keeping hydrated is essential to our health and well-being. It is recommended to drink up to 2 litres (about six large glasses) of fluid every day to prevent dehydration, especially important when exercising. The benefits range from improved concentration and protecting vital organs to a better looking skin – and can even help lose weight.
