  • Always have your own reusable bottle with you. We use Chilly's water bottle, retailing around £25 and can contain your hot drinks as well as your cold!

The most used plastic in the world are plastic bottles - over 500 billion per year. 120 recycled plastic bottles are used to create our RIKR 24L backpack. These plastic bottles that create our backpack are gathered directly from our environment.

Majority of the 500 billion plastic bottles end up in our environment instead or recycling facilities. So, by always having your reusable bottle with you, you would avoid the need to buy water bottles and there fore reduce the use of plastic bottles in our environment.

  • Buy bulk products instead of packaged products


We all have seen these insane photos of packaged vegetables and fruits. As if nature hasn't invented its own clever packaging. More and more stores are proposing unpackaged products and even bulk products so that you can come with your own containers and fill them up. From food to beauty products, there are a lot of solutions emerging.

  • Always have your tote bag with you!
