We chatted with the team at Kai Bottle about how their love of the outdoors evolved into a genuine mission of fighting against the use of disposable plastics, borne from which is their high-quality, reusable drinkware, and how, in order to do that, sustainability in every step of the way—in both product making and packaging—is the ultimate move.

Kai Bottle is a very mission-driven brand, tell us more about the change you’re driving toward?

Kai strives to be a fully sustainable brand that is represented by superior design, quality and environmental consciousness. This is at the core of what we do and influences every decision we make. We aim to make products that people genuinely love and can’t live without. This way people stop using single use plastic and don’t end up with a low quality bottle that just ends up in the cupboard. It was important that we made our products as sustainably as possible and this goes for our packaging too. Our products are made from recycled and long lasting materials and all of our packaging is recyclable or biodegradable. This is only the start of our environmental activism and as we grow, so will our ability to do more. We are constantly optimizing and evolving to better our environmental business practices.

We love the design of your noissue products, tell us more about how you’re using it!

We find that noissue’s range of packaging is incredibly versatile. This is important for a small business so that we can reduce waste and streamline our packaging processes. The compostable mailers and padded mailers fit our entire range in a number of configurations and keep all orders well protected without compromising on environmental integrity. Our favorite feature is the double seal strip so our customers can reuse them instead of binning them. The hang tags are perfect when displaying the Kai Bottles credentials in store. But they are equally perfect for handing out at events and industry fairs to double up as business cards. The A5 cards are perfect as packaging inserts but also double as POS cards that we attach a range of lids to in order to display them nearly in stores.

Simplicity is the key to why we use noissue. Products are easily customizable, lead times are short and it’s so easy to order and reorder when needed. This combined with unmatched quality makes noissue the clear choice over any other packaging suppliers.
