The Most Sustainable Water Bottle In the World by Yuhme
Our family has been on such an amazing sustainable and zero waste journey and sharing what we have learned through first-hand experiences is one of my favorite things to do on this blog. Today I wanted to chat about one of the most basic beginnings of a zero waste journey: the water bottle. Not JUST the water bottle itself, but the water inside as well.
Do you ever stop and think about how lucky you are to have the privilege of one of the most important and basic necessities of life? Do you ever stop and think about how easy it is to turn on a faucet and have what some children consider to be gold?
How lucky the majority of us on social media are to have clean water flowing through our fountains, taps, and streams?
Do you ever stop, at all, to take this in?
Right now, 785 million people lack a basic drinking water service, including 144 million people who are dependent on surface water. Globally, at least 2 billion people use a drinking water source that is contaminated with feces. Contaminated water can transmit many diseases such as cholera, dysentery, typhoid, and polio. This contaminated water is accountable for over 485,000 deaths each year. By 2025, half of the World’s population will be living in water-stressed areas.
These problems almost seem too big….just too intense for most people.
How can we solve this problem? How can we help? Is there a way???
And that’s why, when I heard of this amazing sustainable and zero waste company who not only created the worlds most sustainable water bottle in the world but also gives 6 months of clean water for each one sold, I had to jump on board.
Yuhme is a company that has created waterbottles out of pure sugar cane. These bottles are just as light as plastic with the fantastic ability to biodegrade back to the Earth after their life has come to an end. Not only are they sustainable, but they provide 6 months of clean drinking water to folks in the Central African Republic.
We need more companies like this. The ones who step up.
We need to support those who are fighting the good fight against the denial of basic human rights to our fellow, and equal, human beings.
Each bottle provides at least 3 months of clean water to one person in the Central African Republic via Yuhme’s partner “Water for Good”.

Climate Change, by the time it takes effect, will rob us of nothing. We will likely be dead or very old waiting for that final nail in the proverbial coffin but this isn’t about us. It’s about what we leave behind, the only thing of any real worth that we leave, the next generation, our children.
