water bobble filtered bottlesby Karim Rashid
- the story
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!)
