Americans spend $15 billion a year on our obsession with portable, filtered water. That’s a hit to the purse, but an even larger hit to our environment. Each year, nearly 1.5 million barrels of oil are used to make plastic water bottles for your convenience. You buy them by the case, chug them at the gym, in the car, and even at home, out of just pure laziness. These discarded water bottles flood not only our landfills, but our oceans, and gorgeous landscapes. In fact, 223,392 plastic bottles were removed from US beaches on a single day last September. Litter bugs across the world are quickly ruining the view, and wildlife habitats.
For years I have tried my best to minimize my footprint I leave on this beautiful planet. Water has seemed like one of the easier fixes. With my filtered taps at home and filter pitchers in the fridge, I thought I had figured it all out. I can use my own tap water supply and filter it myself, pouring it constantly into reusable sports bottles. Well sometimes you are out and you need water. I live in the desert where it is now in the 100′s everyday, already reaching 110 in June. So for us, water is an hourly essential that must be accessible at all times. How many water bottles can one person carry? So here and there, I’m forced to buy a plastic bottle of water to refuel myself or daughter. My dehydration clouds my judgment… and then the guilt sets in. But what other choice do I have?
Bobble has invented a ground-breaking, earth-shattering water bottle that will undoubtedly change the way we drink water. The Bobble comes with its own filtration device built right inside the bottle. So no matter where you are, if you have access to water, be it fountain or spigot, you can have fresh filtered water. Bobble is made from recycled plastic. I carry this bottle around empty as my spare water bottle. I know my huge KOR ONE hydration vessel will eventually run dry while out on daily errands and trips. This is where Bobble comes in to play. I immediately put the Bobble into action this weekend while out at the pool. Instead of getting plastic cups filled with water, I simply asked for the water to be put straight into my Bobble. The newly filtered water tasted pure as the driven snow. The bottle was super easy to use, no leakage, and came with a clear cap to pop on top, keeping the spout clean.
Each Bobble replaces 300 plastic water bottles. THREE HUNDRED PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES. When the carbon filter runs out, you simply buy a replacement and you’re set for another 2 months (or 40 gallons). You can switch up your filter color every time you buy a new one, at only $6.95 a filter. Order your Bobble today for only $9.95 a pop.
Poolside hydration… perfect.
