Reduce™, a series of eco-friendly products invented by BaseBrands, can help you minimize your carbon footprint on the environment every day – without compromising convenience or cost. Whether you want to reduce bottles, reduce trips to the dumpster or reduce non-biodegradable waste, our solutions make it easier – and more eco-friendly – to do the things you do every day.

What a great company! I love that people are taking notice of our environment and taking steps to make it better. I was recently sent the Water Week product from Reduce to review and I love what this does and doesn’t do, add garbage to our Earth.

Water Week

I am a big water drinker and constantly drink from plastic water bottles when I am on the go or plastic cups while I am at home. I no longer need to do that with the Water Week system. You can take WaterWeek™ with you wherever go. You just fill them up, place them in your refrigerator (they don’t take up a lot of room) and then take one to go, or even if you just want to stay at home. It is the perfect way to reduce plastic water bottles.

Why reduce the plastic use? Because more than 25 million plastic bottles are thrown away everyday. EVERYDAY! That will take about 1,000 year to biodegreade in landfills.

So using this set of five reusable water bottles makes sense. You can have water AND you help our environment by reducing all the plastic waste.

Water Week in Fridge

I love this system and have been using it for the past few weeks and I won’t be going back to plastic bottles again. It is convenient, and eco-friendly and that is my favorite thing about the Water Week by Reduce. And I am excited to say that I have been given the chance to host a giveaway of one of the Water Week Systems to one lucky Dirty Shirt reader. See rules below to win one today! And don’t forget to check out some of the other great products Reduce has on their website.

    I recycle and I try to re-use as many items as possible to avoid waste. I turn off the water while brushing my teeth, turn off lights as I leave a room, don’t leave my cellphone charger plugged in unless I’m charging. I hate buying bottled water because of all the plastic bottles and would love this idea. That way, one is always on hand – they are cute and so great for our environment.

  175. Betty says:

    I’ve been using tote bags as reuseable grocery bags since 1988. We were US Army stationed in England and their grocery stores would charge you 2 pence (4 cents) for every plastic bag you needed. I quickly adopted the British custom of bringing tote bags and never stopped. For a family of 4 over 2 decades, that’s a huge mountain of plastic/paper bags not required. If Americans had to pay for every bag needed, habits would really change here.
