London Zoo swaps plastic water bottles for aluminium cans designed by Christopher Raeburn


Canowater has revealed the latest addition to its range of environmentally friendly water cans – a special-edition container created by fashion designer Christopher Raeburn for London Zoo.

A UK-based company, Canowater was established in 2015 with the aim of creating a “sustainable alternative to single-use plastic bottles”. It instead packages drinking water inside aluminium cans.

“Aluminium has the highest recycling rate of any drink out there,” said company co-founder Josh White. “Recycle a can and it could be back on the shelf in as little as six weeks”.

For this latest project, the company worked alongside Zoological Society of London (ZSL) to design a replacement for the plastic water bottles sold at both London Zoo and Whipsnade Zoo.

Canowater cans feature a resealable lid

As of tomorrow, 22 March 2018, ZSL will only sell water inside the Canowater containers.

These special-edition cans will be adorned with a shark motif designed by Raeburn – a sustainability champion who has previously launched clothing made from waste fabrics.

Each can also features a resealable lid, so it can be kept in a bag just like a water bottle.

According to Canowater, the aluminium protects the water from elements that may make it unsafe to drink.
