Make a Splash

Designer Karim Rashid has a problem with bottled water: it may be convenient and taste great, but it generates countless tons of plastic waste.

He tackles the problem in style, with this curvaceous, recycled plastic water bottle with a built-in filter. Just fill it up with regular tap water, and enjoy pure filtered water straight from the snap-open spout. The replaceable carbon filter is built right in, and is good for 300 uses (40 gallons). BPA-free. Made in USA.

Filters available in red, blue, green and black. If you don't like the color of your water bobble, you can change the color by buying a new filter!

How to use your Waterbobble:
1) Fill entire bobble up with water.
2) Gently squeeze all the water out through the filter. Black dust will appear in the first rinse. Don't worry, it's only carbon.
3) Refill your waterbobble over and over again.
4) Replace filter after two months (that's 300 bottles of water!)

    Comments about WATER BOBBLE FILTERED BOTTLES:

    If you have to run around alot you know you can refill the bottle and have filtered drinking water no matter where you are. It's great for trips away from home or at home if your filter runs out. Each family memeber has one and we have extra filters in our go bags incase of emergencies. Fema suggest everyone has a go bag ready with water. Having the filters will cut down hopefully on the amount of water one would need to carry with them in cases of emergencies.

          Comments about WATER BOBBLE FILTERED BOTTLES:

          This was a perfect buy since my office doesn't supply filtered water and bringing in cases of water isn't environmentally friendly or friendly on my wallet. I like the style and color choices. There is a small sound that emits when I squeeze the bottle but it's faint and cute and I don't mind.

            Comments about WATER BOBBLE FILTERED BOTTLES:

            This product was easy to set up and use. We homeschool and co-op so it can travel easily for both uses. It keeps us drinking water at home when the chlorine taste kept us from drinking at home before. Much better than buying bottled water. If I was to suggest anything different, possibly a thicker plastic for the bottle, but so far we are very pleased with the product.

                  Comments about WATER BOBBLE FILTERED BOTTLES:

                  The office water fountain is chilled but not filtered, so the Bobble lets me have cold, filtered water at work whenever I want it! So much easier than bringing a water bottle from home. I should note that the spout on my first Bobble was slightly loose, which made it a bit difficult to drink from—but still worth it. I'm on my 2nd Bobble now, and the lid/spout is perfect—so I think that the first one was just a fluke.

                    The Waterbobble is awesome. It cuts out on tons of waste plus water from it tastes delicious!! The filter does a wonderful job and the cost is very price-effective if you factor in how often you buy water. I use it a lot in class and I wish it did not make that "sucking" noise when I use it but other than that I absolutely love it!
