Pokito was invented as a response to the terrible waste caused by single use disposable cups which can’t even be recycled as they contain plastic.
The practical, reusable Pokito is made from recyclable materials and is not reliant on tree plantations for production. The Pokito cup is environmentally sustainable after just 15 uses.
From design and manufacturing to shipping and distribution, right through to consumer use, the environment is considered throughout each step of the Vapur life cycle.
Vapur, Inc. started in 2009 with a mission to reduce the use of single-use plastic bottles by creating the most portable, reusable water bottle on the planet.
10 years later the mission is still the same and Vapur has won the hearts of millions with dozens of styles of collapsible, reusable BPA-FREE and freezable Anti-Bottles.
Russbe’s washable and reusable snack and sandwich bags provide a fun alternative to disposable plastic and paper sacks. Each RUSSBE bag has the potential to keep hundreds of disposable bags out of the world’s oceans, cities and landfills while keeping snacks and sandwiches fresh and ready to enjoy.
