“Portobello Tents pledge never to buy or
use plastic water bottles”

Portobello Tents have teamed up with RAW Foundation to produce a cool, zero plastic, reusable, stainless steel water bottle.

RAW Foundation’s mission is to raise awareness about plastic pollution and free the world from pointless plastic and waste.

It’s not the only change we need to make in everyday life, but it’s a great place to start. Investing in a reusable bottle is a positive first step all of us can take to help tackle the problem. Let’s make reuse the new normal – one bottle at a time – for everyone, everywhere. Together, we can make a difference!

For every bottle sold, we will donate £4 to the RAW Mission.


Every bottle sold not only tackles single-use plastic, but also helps to fund RAW Foundation’s campaign work globally on this critical issue to eliminate single-use plastic by 2030. #plasticpledge #rawexpedition

"Every single one of us has to take
individual responsibility for the
single-use plastics we consume."

Mel Watson, Founder, RAW Foundation


Portobello Tents are proud to be a sponsor
of the 'RAW in South America' Expedition

    The mission of the expedition is to:

  • Identify and record plastic pollution data, including microfibres
  • Educate the public about the extent and dangers of plastic pollution
  • Inform about and promote alternative sustainable solutions
  • Assess waste disposal policies and attitudes
  • Support lawmakers to make educated decisions based on the data collected

A world’s first expedition to shine a spotlight on the scale and peril of plastic pollution, by circumnavigating South America from Brazil to Peru (clockwise) and into the Amazon.


The plastic pollution crisis has caught the attention of the general public. Sea salt has been reported to be contaminated by microscopic plastic particles [1]. plastic chunks have been found on Artic ice [2]. and it is predicted that by 2050 the oceans will contain more plastic (by weight) than fish [3] As a response to public concerns some companies have started rethinking their usage of plastic 1products by replacing plastic with more sustainable alternatives [4]. whereas others sail full steam ahead into an unsustainable future [5]. Raw Foundation is driving forward the uptake of clean, reusable, local and/or circular alternative materials in place of harmful single-use plastics. We will promote plastic-free products and sustainable materials, such as glass and metal (especially steel), as an alternative to plastic products and packaging to reduce pollution.
