We infuse our super tasty waters with real, wonky fruit. That’s bent, crushed, curved, knobbly, misshapen fruit which others say no to. By accepting the misfits we are helping to reduce food waste.
But at the moment that’s exactly what’s happening, with up to 40% of fruits and veg grown in the UK going to waste, It’s a seriously frightening statistic for a serious problem that needs to be at the forefront of our minds when we choose what we eat and drink.
At Dash we judge our ingredients on taste alone - looks never come into it. So while we are fussy about flavour we don’t care if it’s bumped, curved, broken or squashed. We want to do our bit to cut food waste so by saying yes to produce that others say no to, we make drinks that taste delicious and in a small way help raise awareness about the big issue of waste. One bashed up berry, curly cucumber and lopsided lemon at a time.
Our cans and bottles have been around the block a few times. And that’s the way we like them. Aluminium and glass are some of the stars of the recycling world. Making our cans from recycled aluminium uses a tiny 8% of the energy of producing new materials. It’s also super light to transport and it’s the most recycled material out there - alu-mazing!
Our glass bottles can be recycled and reused again and again... and again... without ever losing their quality. So if it’s recycled (like these bottles) it’s brilliant. In fact, you’d be hard pushed to find two better materials that can be remade to look as good as new, but that actually might be older than you…
