1. Floss Your Bike

Bike Floss is Purple Harry’s launch product; its design is revolutionary and it's unlike anything else available. It's dental floss for your bike!

When it comes to cleaning the freewheel, chain, derailleurs and more intricate components, rags and old toothbrushes either get caught or simply shift the dirt around rather than remove it. Furthermore, these areas are also expensive to replace if they aren’t maintained properly. The Bike Floss, which comes in three grades, gets into these tricky areas and keeps your bike running smoothly. What's more, it can be cleaned itself and reused.

Price: £3.99

2. Steel & Bamboo Water Bottle

A sustainably-produced reusable water bottle, free of BPA and other toxins. This is the ultimate bottle for life, designed to change the way people think and drink. It’s crafted using just three materials - sustainably harvested bamboo, food-grade silicone and mirror finish stainless steel, no paint, no plastic and no toxins. Etched with a simple SAS logo.

In 2011 nearly 34 litres of bottled water were consumed per person. So, by using one of these reusable bottles instead, that’'s several plastic bottles saved per year, many of which would otherwise end up on our beaches!
