Cannondale debuts compostable water bottle b/c execs ditch 500k bottles per 12 months

In response to Cannondale, professional biking groups undergo greater than half one million plastic water bottles per 12 months, lots of them solely used as soon as earlier than getting solid to the facet of the street throughout a race. Whereas some turn into souvenirs, many head to the landfill for just about ever.

These new 100% compostable water bottles purpose to alleviate that by changing the normal plastic bidon with one which’ll eradicate roughly 630,000 bottles from going to the dump. They are saying 70,000 of these are used within the Grand Tour alone, and that 34,000 bottles are utilized in a season by EF Schooling – EasyPost/TIBCO males’s and ladies’s groups.

It’s derived from plant-based supplies, with all the bottle, cap, and chew valve all being fully compostable. And, it’s free from plasticizers, heavy metals, and BPAs, so it’s good for us people, too.

In response to Cannondale, it would “decompose in as shortly as 3 months, in an industrial compost system as soon as uncovered to micro-organisms, warmth and humidity. That is licensed by European Compost Requirements EN13242. At house, this can be roughly 10 – 12 months because of the variability in house compost methods.”

Initially the bottle can be utilized by their World Tour groups, then opened up for all the World Tour for the 2023 season and past. Whereas there aren’t any fast plans for promoting them to the general public, we’d definitely wish to see that possibility ahead of later.
