3 Small Sustainable Accessories that make a BIG Impact!

by Rebecca Veksler on June 06, 2022

If you know SoL, you probably know us best for our 100% plastic free Cups and Bottles. Made from the highest quality hand blown glass, snuggled in our Signature Silicon Sleeve. But aside from our signature cups and bottles we have a range of sustainable accessories that are good for you and even better for the planet. At SoL we stand up for sustainability, our mission is to end single-use plastics and decrease the need for plastic production all together! We believe that if everyone makes a small shift in their daily habits, the planet will be a cleaner place to enjoy now and for generations to come. 

In honour of World Environment Day our Marketing Manager Jess has curated a list of her 3 favourite SoL accessories that help her live a sustainable lifestyle!

1. Pure Binchotan Active Charcoal Water Filter Sticks

My absolute favourite SoL accessory has to be our Charcoal Water Filter Sticks. These two black logs are small but incredibly powerful. My favourite way to describe them is that they are almost too good to be true. Charcoal is a centuries old superpower that has proven to lower cholesterol levels, improve kidney function and whiten your teeth! Our SoL charcoal sticks are multi-purpose but I like to pop mine in my water bottle and let it work its natural magic. Its porous nature means it absorbs all the toxins and nasties found in tap water and releases healthy minerals - leaving water tasting clear and pure.

2. SoL Pouches

SoL pouches have so many uses, you won't go a day without using it! Made from Hemp and silicon it is the perfect pouch and always comes in handy. Hemp is a natural fibre that requires no chemicals and far less water to create than other materials, and is of course biodegradable. Because of its silicon interior it holds shape perfectly and withstands time! So once you’ve finished using your SoL Cup simply pop it in the pouch and avoid any nasty spills or breakages in your bag! Most importantly, unlike plastic ziplock bags, these pouches can be reused again and again and won’t take hundreds of years to start decomposing. I like to use mine to keep my veggies fresh and crispy in the fridge and also pop my phone in it to protect it at the beach! 

3. SoL Straw Kit

The SoL Straw Kit is the most simple and convenient way to make a sustainable swap in your life.  Australians alone use about 10 million straws every day, and most are used just once - for around 15 minutes, after which they are thrown away. Plastic straws are one of the most common types of litter found on beaches and overtime break into ever-smaller particles, releasing chemicals into the soil, air, and water that are harmful to animals, plants, people, and the environment. Our straw kit won’t leave you sucking on plastic and makes enjoying your drink taste and feel good. The Kit comes with a sleek Rose Gold and Silver straw plus a bigger Gold Straw that's perfect for smoothies! They also come with our signature hemp mini bag and straw cleaner! Simply pop your straw kit in your bag and take it wherever you go. 

These small shifts can be as simple as making an effort to remember your reusable cup each morning, instead of purchasing a disposable plastic cup that is used for ten minutes and gets thrown into landfill for hundreds of years. We’re experienced in understanding the impact single-use plastic has on people’s health and on the environment. We strive to make this information accessible to people regardless of their journey. Because a lot of people doing a little bit, goes a long way for the planet.

And remember… If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito!
