A bit about team BugBear™

Every good idea starts with a problem.  Our problem was that as parents to 2 primary school age children, Dexter and Cassia we just couldn’t find the right drinks bottle.

We were searching for a bottle that ideally did several jobs all at the same time.  The water bottle needed to be reusable and plastic free, we were fed up with constantly replacing water bottles.  As a family we have made a real effort to cut down on our plastic use.  Both Dexter and Cassia have spent many hours cleaning up plastic at the beach and are as keen as we are to cut down on plastic.

We really wanted a bottle that was produced in the UK, the ‘Bear’ metal of the bottles comes from China as unfortunately this is the only option right now.  The rest of production, print and treatment are all carried out in the UK which is 70-80% of the production.

It needed to keep their drinks cool, be easy to clean, not get dented or split when dropped, the aluminium and plastic bottles did neither of these jobs, so it had to be made of high-grade stainless steel.

We wanted our drinkwear to be identifiably theirs so we would need creative stunning artwork…..and wouldn’t it also be great if each bottle and coffee cup could stay germ free!

Now there are many bottles that do some of these, but we just couldn’t find one that did every one of them and we didn’t want to become just another one of those water bottle companies…

So, with our joint extensive knowledge in the promotional merchandise industry we were able to properly investigate and search for the right product. Working closely with our UK factory we developed our brand BugBear(TM) Bottles and coffee cups which are all individually treated with a patent protected, fully certified AntiBug® treatment (clinically proven to kill 99.9% of harmful bacteria from 50 common organisms such as MRSA, E.coli and salmonella and will continue to fight for the lifetime of the product).  Our bottles are made from 18/8 Grade Stainless Steel, so they keep your drinks hot for 12 hours and cold for 24 hours.  Our bottles are all lead and BPA free.  Our packaging is plastic free and fully recyclable.

Our designed range of BugBear drinkware are the only bottles that you need this year whether it’s for the gym, school, beach, work or for your desk at home… we have a bottle for you.

We hope that you make BugBear part of your family as it is now has become part of ours.
