Super Sparrow bottles
We are on the move all the time these days as our thirst to explore is bigger than ever. So, keeping rehydrated is a must and portable bottles are a great way of making sure you always have a drink handy.
Designers at Super Sparrow have gone one step further though and come up with trendy sleek bottles which allow people to enjoy both hot and cold drinks.
The range of stylish bottles, To Go, Tritan Sports Bottle, Ultra-Light and Enjoy series are made from eco friendly materials which are combined with high performance technology, meaning top drawer products.
The To Go bottles are made from 18/8 stainless steel which makes sure flavours are not retained or transferred to ensure a pure taste and they are BPA and toxin free too. Insulated and in smart bright colours, they come with a neat carry case for people on the go. There is also a natty straw and bottle cleaner to keep everyone healthy.
Sports enthusiasts will like the Tritan bottle which is clear and sustainable, leak free and spill proof and designed for one handed opening for people on the move.
The Ultra-Light series are made form 18/10 professional grade stainless steel, making them 30% lighter than standard water bottles and guarantees a drink will stay cold for 24 hours and hot for 12 hours. Each has a sleek powder coat which ensures an easy and sweat free grip.
The Enjoy bottles also benefit from the same technologies and have an easy to use flip open lid. Like all the different styles, they come in bright trendy colours, are re useable, eco friendly and easily recyclable.
Super Sparrow, which was formed in 2015, aims to cater for any adventure people are on and the firm’s mission is to reinvent the way everyday products are used and cultivate a community that genuinely wants to make a difference to the planet. By creating Super Sparro , sustainability is accessible to everyone.
The bottles retail from £13 upwards, depending on the collection and accessories are available too. For more information, please visit: www.supersparrow.com.
