Meet Yuhme: The Sustainable Water Bottle That Gives Back
When I was selecting products for Give a Damn Goods I wanted to be sure to include Yuhme. Yuhme is seriously my favorite water bottle and such a unique product! I took this bad boy to Europe with me because it's the perfect travel water bottle. Yuhme creates sustainable water bottles made from sugarcane. Yes, that's right sugarcane! It looks and feels like regular plastic and it's dishwasher safe!
Not only is this water bottle made from a renewable resource such as sugarcane, but it is also CO2 negative, BPA free & toxin free, 100% recyclable, and made in a no-waste facility in Sweden. I've had my Namaste Yuhme Water Bottle for about two years when I originally featured this innovative brand on The Honest Consumer. Since then I've traveled with it, put it through the dish washer many times, and it is incredibly durable. 10/10 recommend this product!
To add another element to this sustainable water bottle Yuhme has partnered with Water for Good. Water for Good works across the Central African Republic training locals in well maintenance. A big issue is when Western world communities build wells, locals lack the knowledge of well maintenance and care causing the African community to end up where they were before lacking access to clean water. Each Yuhme water bottle sold provides six months of clean water for communities in the Central African Republic. Through this partnership within the first three months Yuhme was on the market, Yuhme was able to donate enough funds to provide 300 years of clean water. So much good in this water bottle! And they make great gifts too!
