A shift towards more sustainable living was becoming the norm prior to the coronavirus pandemic, and now there are growing fears that many organisations have turned their back on the movement.
But all is not lost. On a personal level, many of us can make small changes to continue our fight against the climate emergency. One way to do this is by reducing our single-use plastic consumption.
If you’re partial to a fizzy drink but are concerned about the waste you’re creating, allow us to introduce you to Eighties favourite, SodaStream – the go-to soda making machine that means you can create your own flavoured sparkling water at home and you can fill, refill and reuse bottles multiple times over, meaning you save money and avoid single use plastic bottles.
The brand recently announced a partnership with Sainsbury’s, making it even easier for you to make and enjoy eco-friendly sparkling water at home since you can buy and exchange the gas cylinders with ease as part of your weekly shop in-store.
The SodaStream jet sparkling water maker is currently on offer for £45 in Sainsbury’s stores, meaning you will make a massive £30 saving. The offer is available until Tuesday 6 October.
Each gas cylinder makes up to 60l of sparkling water and costs only £13 when you exchange your empty cylinder for a full one – costing £10 less than if you were to buy a new one. A great way to make save money, but also make sure you’re living a more circular lifestyle.
If you’re looking to invest in a soda making machine, allow our round-up to give you some inspiration into the machines that can help you be more eco-friendly. While you’ll be reducing single-use plastic, investing in one of these machines will also mean you will save money in the long run.
