Summer has just started and already I am gulping down bottle upon bottle of water like its the only thing sustaining me..oh wait. It is. But for all the chat about whats good and whats bad about bottled water during the summer months..there is a new contender on the block. Sure, we all have our BPA free bottles by now (c’mon people, even Walgreens sell them for $3), and we’ve stopped drinking from bottles left in the hot car..but what about carting around your own personal water filter?
Put that Brita down..it’s not what I mean. Karim Rashid, designer of many a thing beautiful has come up with a new offering – the Bobble Bottle. BPA free, the bobble bottle has a unique feature – a built in carbon filter, to get rid of the chlorine, organic contaminents and any other nasties floating around your local tap water. The price isn’t too bad – just $9.95 and $7 for each new filter – in a choice of 5 colours. Just think of all the money you will save on bottled water – not to mention your contribution to keeping the worlds landfills a little lighter…You can buy these bottles either online or at your local container store.
