YUHME: A sustainable waterbottle

Water, water,water. We can´t live without it. In Iceland where the weather isn´t very warm we can surely get by without drinking many liters of it each day but oh boy, how many times I have found myself being super thirsty, dizzy and even tired because I ALWAYS FORGET to drink enough water.
So, drinking water is important and since I am trying to be a tree-hugger person I don´t want to be buying single-use plastic bottles every time I get thirsty when im out of the house, therefore I bought myself a pretty, pretty reusable water bottle.

This bottle is from a Swedish brand called YUHME. The name stands for You Us Humanity Me Enviroment (a bit of a mouthful but still a cool name). They make waterbottles from Green PE which is plastic made out of sugarcane and it is 100% BPA and toxin free. The sugarcane comes from Brazil and the bottle is then produced in Sweden. Another cool thing about this brand is that for every bottle sold, YUHME provide 6 months of clean water to someone in the Central African Republic through a small charity called Water for good.

I ordered the bottle from the website Yuhme.se and It came in a cute paper box (yay for plastic-free packaging!). The bottle I bought is called “the namaste” and it has this beautiful sugarcane pattern. I am loving it to bits and take it with me wherever I go!

YUHME is all about transparency and on their website you can find all the information you could possibly need. If not, Alex and Alex, the founders of YUHME are super friendly and helpful!

Until next time
-A happy Freydís and her pretty bottle!

  1. I've been looking for a replacement for using plastic bottles everyday, do you know if they deliver internationally?

  2. Love that this is made of sugar cane! It's a lovely design too :-)
