CanO WaterPlastic-free H2O — an ocean of reasons why you should drink only canned water…

ARIEL BOOKER, CO-FOUNDER of CanO Water has listed below the key reasons why you should drink canned water. First, and most importantly, with approximately 8 million tonnes of plastic ending up in our oceans each and every year, plastic pollution is one of the biggest problems affecting our environment today.

Some great reasons why you should only get your water from a can:

# Aluminium cans are the most recycled and recyclable beverage container on the planet

# Aluminium cans are infinitely recyclable and do not lose any quality during the recycling process

# Recycled cans can be repurposed and back on the shelves within as little as six weeks

# 75% of the aluminium ever made is still in productive use today — some of it first being mined in the 1800s!

# Aluminium cans contain more than three times the recycled content of glass and/or plastic — the average aluminium can contains a massive 68% recycled content

# Aluminium cans are a commodity which means recycling companies are incentivised to pick them up

# Cans stay cooler for longer; we might be biased but there is nothing nicer than a cool CanO Water on a baking summers day!

And get this recycling just one aluminium can saves enough energy to:

# Run a TV for three hours

# Boil a kettle four times

# Power a laptop for four hours

# Power your mobile phone for a day

# Power a hairdryer for one hour

# Power your shaver for a day

# Power a light bulb for a day

# Power your iPad for four hours

Citroen C5 Aircross SUV: disconnect in complete comfort…

L
ESS THAN A MONTH after its launch and with over 90,000 sales under its belt, Citroen's C5 Aircross SUV is coming back to TV with the film Citroen C5 Aircross SUV: disconnect in complete comfort.

Filmed in India — a land of great journeys and magnificent settings — it's the ideal destination to appreciate the comfort of Citroen's flagship C5 Aircross SUV.



The film follows a father who seems to be compulsively searching for a network to stay connected during his holidays on the other side of the world. An absurd journey begins as the man goes from one hotel to the next, his arms constantly reaching into the air and his eyes fixated on his phone, packing his bags in a disheartened mood each time they move on again tracking the ever-elusive signal. Finally, in the middle of the desert, a look of intense relief comes across his face when he sees 'No signal' displayed and we get that, in fact, the man was trying to completely disconnect…

Looking at the outright rejection of an ever-faster pace of living, the film is an ode to truly disconnecting and letting go. Citroen is reaching out to those who do not want an SUV just for the image, but who need a real 'comfort bubble' in order to get away from it all, to seriously disconnect and forget the daily hustle and bustle.

This is exactly what the C5 Aircross SUV offers, with its twenty safety and driving aid features, as well as its suspension with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions, its Advanced Comfort seats, its benchmark modularity and also its best-in-class boot, with up to 720 litres for luggage and loads.

Music-wise, Citroen is once again supporting French creativity by partnering with a well-known group: Outlines. Their track I Cannot Think accompanies the film. Made up of three old friends, Outlines records tracks located on the boundary between pop culture and contemporary art and their sounds have made them one of the pioneering groups in the European rock-soul scene.


Volvo puts UK customers first with new Test Drive+ service...

THE INTRODUCTION of Volvo's new Test Drive+ programme across its retailer network is designed to provide an authentically premium service, one that's tailored to meet customers' needs and preferences throughout the process from a convenient booking service to providing the car they are interested in at a location and for a length of time that suits them best.

Test Drive+ allows customers to choose to have a test drive at a retailer or a specific location, such as their home or place of work, lasting up to one hour to ensure a thorough introduction to the car. Alternatively, an extended test drive can be booked, offering flexibility of delivery and collection, for up to four days.

Volvo Test Drive+

The difference in the Test Drive+ experience begins right at the point of the initial car booking, with a convenient registration and reservation system that can be accessed online (via smartphone and laptop/desktop computer) or by calling Volvo's team of Test Drive+ agents.

Customers can view a real-time calendar to see what dates and times are available, and can use an online chat service if they need support or have immediate questions.

Once a reservation has been made, customers receive an email confirmation of the request. If the test drive is taking place at a retailer, the attention to detail includes providing specific, reserved parking for the customer when they arrive.

Volvo wants to ensure the test drive experience is relaxed and gives people the best possible introduction to a new car. The Test Drive+ hosts are product specialists whose aim is to ensure the customer understands everything they need to about the car, including its state-of-the-art technology and world-class safety credentials, in order to maximise their test drive.

Kristian Elvefors, Volvo Car UK Managing Director: "The test drive is a critical element when people are making the important decision about whether or not to buy a new car, so we want to make sure it's an experience that makes them feel at ease and valued as a customer, and which also reflects the premium quality of our brand. With Test Drive+ we have looked at every aspect from the customer's point of view to make it as flexible and informative as possible. We want people to enjoy an ideal introduction to our cars, one which is completely designed around them."

Test Drive+ is available nationwide, initially for the multi-award-winning Volvo XC40 compact SUV — one of Britain's most in-demand premium models. The programme is set to extend to further cars in the Volvo range, beginning with the newly-launched S60 saloon.

Participants in Test Drive+ must meet Volvo Car UK's eligibility requirements.

Chernobyl Sky Original drama Chernobyl explores the truth surrounding the disastrous nuclear power plant explosion in 1986 — a story of incredible heroism and sacrifice, but also shocking lies and conspiracy...

THE RESULT OF EXTENSIVE RESEARCH, Chernobyl seeks to tell the stories of those directly involved in causing the catastrophe, and those affected by the nuclear fallout felt across the world.

Jared Harris (Mad Men, The Crown) stars as Valery Legasov, a nuclear physicist who is one of the first people to grasp the scope of the nuclear disaster. Ulana Khomyuk (Emily Watson: Apple Tree Yard; The Theory of Everything) is a scientist committed to getting to the bottom of the cause, while Lyudmilla Ignatenko (Jessie Buckley: Wild Rose, Beast) is the wife of a firefighter who was first on the scene. Stellan Skarsgård (Mamma Mia, Thor) plays Soviet Deputy Prime Minister Boris Shchergina, leading the government commission from a safe distance.

Directed by The Walking Dead's Jonas Renck, the five-part series is committed to a realism that refuses to shy away from the horrors, both physical and psychological, inflicted upon the victims of this uniquely horrifying event.

A deeply moving story about how individuals act when faced with something inexplicable, this drama seeks to honour the spirit of those who helped stop the devastation from spreading even further.

The BBC calls it "TV that doesn't just get you thinking, it stops you sleeping" ***** and the Irish Independent says: "Devastatingly powerful — no piece of dramatised non-fiction has ever felt this authentic" *****

Investigating the lengths to which governments will go to cover up atrocities and suppress the spread of information, Chernobyl also acts as a timely warning that the truth will out.

"Riveting — and utterly horrifying… beautifully crafted… one of the best television dramas so far this year" *****The Telegraph

"Gripping, weighty drama is a triumph… timely, bleak, intelligent and compelling" *****The Independent

"A drama so powerful you can almost feel the radiation pumping out of the screen" *****The Times

"Compelling, vital television… a staggering, unmissable achievement which will haunt you for weeks… one of the most affecting and haunting shows to emerge this century" *****Metro
