water bobble. water bottle. the future of water.

17 billion dollars are spent in america each year alone on bottled water.  convenient yes. killing the planet yes. other ways to use $17 billions dollars? yes! as you can probably guess, i’m a huge advocate for bringing my recyclable h20 bottle wherever i go. other than the fact that i probably drink 3 britas a day, i’m obsessed.  and if i really need water and feel like i’m going do die from dehydration, i will use a plastic water bottle, but not without my insides turning outsides and feeling this horrendous amount of guilt. extreme, i know.  however, i just read about this cool new product called the water bobble. now i know what you’re thinking.  another pre-meditated “need” that marketers are messaging to their consumers. i thought that too, until i read more about this cool water bottle. introducing the water bobble.

now i do have an issue with just buying products based on the design and cool factor. i mean, how many sigg bottles does one need?  thinking green has really challenged me on my purchasing habits, not just in the h20 bottle world. clothes, shoes, car, etc. is it a necessity or is it cool?  however, if you are one of those folks who must have filtered water, then this product is for you and i recommend checking it out.  there is a carbon filter in the water bobble that lasts 2 months or 40 gallons later, which ever comes first. the filter is replaceable for $6.95. and it’s BPA free, made from recycled materials (which is hard to find, you’d think!) and is also recyclable. how cool is that? oh, did i mention it was made in the great US of A? well, there you go kids, check it out. tap is where it’s at.

  1. I love this. You are seriously my coolest and most product savvy friend :). What would I do without you to do all the reasearch into green products? We may need to invest in some of these . . . Meeka

  3. nice find twin. tho i wonder how many people really think about sustainability. i must admit green is the big buzz word these days, along w/ the words ‘natural and organic’. unfortunately green does not equal sustainable. and yet i dont know if many of us pause to compare what green products we consume or use and realize the energy it takes into making them or recycling them. there’s always a give and take. not to say we shouldnt go green. to the contrary i think its stellar the folks in the PNW are paving the way for our country. someone has to do it. walk the talk is better than just talk and statistics. definitely do whats right for the environment and support of local economies (shopping local).

    anyway, fyi i’m starting a blog on green versus sustainable topics….so much ‘talk’ these days is on green products but a majority of them or the concepts are not sustainable to society or the environment. and i guess because everyone is using this damn thing called the internet and posting stuff (cool or not-btw, yours is cool. meeka, yours is cool too. probably under the category of super cool.) i figured i’d share my 2cents with all the other ‘hippies’ as the fam calls us. try to enlighten those who feel so inclined to read my crap, and maybe, just maybe they’ll be somewhat more educated than if they went to foxnews. besides it seems like its the only way to get your voice heard. and NO, i am not going to use twitter or buzz. nice thought tho.

    ok i’m off my soapbox…

    I love your passion about this subject. It’s inspiring to see the research and effort you put into this. keep posting. As I said I have the lunch tote you recommended and love it! I always feel guilty about the plastic I use but try to recycle as much as possible. What I really need is reusable sandwich bags or snack bags for Kaio. If you have any ideas let me know (Tupperware doesn’t work that great because he needs to be able to open it himself). Thanks again for the inspiration- Lisa
