I had a post all planned in my head around my obsession with my bobble carbon-filtered-on-the-go water bottle. Feeling very ahead-of-the-curve, I shared my idea with Mr Bondville who kindly informed me that "everyone at work has one of those". OK then.
But I wanted to talk about reusablewater bottles anyway, as they are such a big step forward toward cutting out the enormous waste from disposable plastic water bottles (22 billion are disposed every year!). How great are the new carbon-filter bottles. They filter chlorine and contaminents from your water as you drink, and you can refill your bottle from any safe water source.
eau good bottle by Black + Blum. I adore the design of this bottle, with
the cork seal, colour tag and exposed Binchotan charcoal. BPA-free of course. Just gorgeous. In Australia you can find them at top 3 by design and until.
US-based bobble (above) has done a fantastic job creating an everyday bottle that also looks great (and sits proudly on my desk all day begging me to drink it - which I most certainly need). Thanks Karim Rashid for your design genius. And thank you bobble for making this product so accessible; you can find it at stockists all over the world and here in Australia at your local grocery store.
Be-gone disposable water bottles!
What do you think of these designs?
