Quand nos bouteilles en plastique visent le ciel !

When our plastic bottles reach for the sky!

Introduction

Once upon a time, there was a mountain that was a bit peculiar, since it was made entirely of plastic and never stopped growing. No servant knight, no fairy could stop this one from growing, minute after minute!

As you can see, this is no children's tale, but a reality that concerns us all.

The impact of plastic

Plastic is everywhere. It envelops our food, preserves our drinks and is even in our clothes.

Every minute, nearly one million plastic bottles are sold worldwide. If we put them end to end, we could surround the Earth 4 times. Every year.

Comparing our bottle towers with our monuments and world summits

Have you ever marveled at the grandeur of the Eiffel Tower, the Statue of Liberty or the Burj Khalifa Tower in Dubai?

How long do you think it would take to reach the same height using one person's consumption of plastic bottles?

Reducing our footprint: the ÖKO EUROPE alternative

We must opt for reusable containers like our ÖKO EUROPE ultra-filtering water bottle, which is additionally equipped with a patented nano-filtration system, developed in concert with the NASA. This removes all traces of pesticides, drugs, metals, viruses or bacteria...

More information on the following page: Technologies & laboratory analysis.

Our €29 filter has a lifespan of 400 liters (that's 0.0725 cents per liter).

Summary table

The table below highlights the impact of plastic water bottle consumption over several decades. Using two hypotheses - that of a single person and that of a couple - the table illustrates not only the total number of bottles consumed over different periods, but also the cumulative height they represent, the total weight in plastic, and the cost generated. These heights are compared to emblematic monuments, putting into perspective the impressive amount of waste we can produce by consuming these bottles on a daily basis.

This table also raises financial awareness...

Do you really want to spend €20,000 on polluting plastic bottles in your lifetime?
