About Narcis'sips

Sustainably Focused, Sustainably Priced

Facts:

  • Debris from single use plastics are leading to over 100 million fish, mammal and seabird deaths in our oceans each year

  • An estimated 100 million tons of plastic exist in oceans around the world ​

  • Scientists currently estimate that 8.8 million tonnes of plastic waste enters the oceans around the world annually

  • Plastics introduce a chemical warfare to the bodies of fish, ​killing reproductive health of many fish species

  • 11% of household waste is plastic, 40% of which is plastic bottles

  • The process of producing bottled water requires around 6 times as much water per bottle as there is in the container

 

Why we started!

In Ireland we have been blessed with such a vast range of natural landscapes and alluring countryside views. This has made the outdoors a huge part of growing up in Ireland. In recent years we have become increasingly aware of how our natural landscapes have been impacted negatively by single use plastics on our hikes, walks along the beaches and swims in our seas. Plastic debris can be found everywhere impeding the natural beauty of our landscapes causing havoc in our oceans regarding global warming and severely harming marine life.

 

As well as the environmental impact, there is also the health and economical factors that single use plastics causes on society. Plastic has several negative health implications associated with it due to the toxic nature of BPA and PET particles found within and also negatively impacts our pockets rather than choosing to go reusable. Buying one plastic water bottle a day is the equivalent of €550 per annum wasted.

Play your part!

We want to play our part in practicing what we preach. One thing we talk about a lot at Narcissips is "the ripple effect". They say a butterfly who flaps it's wings in New York can cause a hurricane in China. To us, this means that in the age of "influencers"  that we find ourselves in, we in fact are all influencers. We can all make change and all have the ability to impact others, be it our friends, our families or our work colleagues. 

 

To play our part, we are donating €1 from every bottle to several charities throughout the course of the year to help and inspire others less fortunate and to solve one small part of the plastic problem. 

 

So far we have donated to Clean Water and educational charities in Africa helping dozens of families get access to clean water whilst paying the school fees for several dozen kids who wouldn't of had the access to education otherwise! Over the next few months of our journey we hope to donate to to help plant trees across the globe as well as donating funds to help clean up our oceans.

Whether you are the Fitness fanatic or working Professional we have several designs and styles to suit your needs! Let's make change happen one step and one bottle at a time!

 

Our Journey!

Our journey began in 2018 when we realised the negative impacts that single use plastics were having on society as discussed above. Along with this, we felt that current brand prices were overpriced which we felt, acted as a deterrent to change. 

"People should be able to afford to make the healthy and sustainable choice".

 

To combat all these issues highlighted, we created the Narcis'sips brand to provide an economically viable solution to solve one small part of the plastic problem.

 

Our mission had two guiding principles which we felt epitomised our company and goals;  Firstly to provide sleek, sophisticated and sustainably priced stainless steel bottles to our Customers at a price that encouraged & enabled change.

 

Secondly, to limit our carbon footprint as a company and practice what we preach. 

It was then we realised both our goals intertwined. By reducing our waste as a company by cutting back on the usual "chic" packaging used to "woo" customers, which is inevitably discarded upon purchase, we were able to cut our costs dramatically. This in turn allowed us to ensure a low cost base for our Customers.

This intertwined with personalised delivery delivery methods via cycling and public transport also helped us not only meet and develop relationships with customers, but ensure people had a strong first impression from the heart of Narcis'sips.

Thank you!
