If you have to buy a plastic bottle of water, the best thing to do with it is re-use it. It’s the reason we love the bottle shower – a rose attachment that simply twists into place on all narrow neck plastic bottles. When the bottle is upturned the device delivers a constant flow without any need for squeezing. A two-litre bottle holds enough water for a shower lasting almost two-and-a-half minutes and a water left in a plastic bottle for an hour or so can become surprisingly warm.
The list of uses for the bottle shower is long. As well as a camp shower, we think it would be great for rinsing hands and feet on the beach or washing dog paws after a muddy walk.

Why it’s important to reduce, reuse and recycle
If you include power plant cooling water, it takes seven litres of water simply to manufacture a one-litre bottle. To that environmental cost you can add the 162g of oil required to make the plastic, all the associated CO2 emissions and the millions of tons of land fill or ocean waste to which the bottled water industry contributes.
