Bobble Water Bottles

My wife and I are trying to go green with most aspects of our lives. Composting, recycling, and gardening are just the beginning. Our next step is hope is to get rid of water bottles from our home and these water bottles are a great way to do it.

I give you Bobble Water Bottles and we begin with a quote from the company website.

Bottle water is costly.

 Americans alone spend 17 billion every year to slake their first for portable water.  The costs are not limited to our wallets, either: each year, nearly 1.5 million barrels of oil are used to make plastic water bottles. Most of these bottles are casually discarded. They end up in our landfills, in our oceans, littering our sidewalks.

We were intrigued by this challenged. We have decades of experience solving design and engineering concerns. And we like bottled water. We didn't think the solution was to stop drinking it. We saw this as engineering problem, a complex question that demanded a simple, intuitive answer.

We set out to satisfy our desire for fresh, clean, portable water while minimizing the considerable costs bottle water imposes on our environment and ourselves. We decided to reinvent the water bottle. We needed our bottle to be recyclable and resilient. We needed to hold costs down. We refused to sacrifice style in favor of function. In essence, we wanted it all, and we wanted it now.

Two years later, we proudly present: bobble. make water better.


Bobble Water Bottles have been making news and helping us lead greener lives. The idea is fairly simple and saves many water bottles in the process. Each water bottle runs about $10 each but pays for itself in no time at all. Fairly inexpensive, BPA free, water bottles that have its own filters and can save about 300 bottles from the landfill. The filters are also low cost at about $7 each and makes each water bottle about 2 cents. Could these bottles get any better? I think so...

Not only are they great great for the environment, they also come in 3 different sizes, filters in six different colors and even multi-colored for kids. There are different options for different needs. Just do some browsing on their website for these options.

I have given you the information, it is up to you to do something with it.

  1. These would eliminate so much waste. My husband insists on buying bottled water and I shudder to think how many of our plastic bottles are out there in landfills or in the oceans. Maybe some day I'll convince him to switch to something like this. Thanks for the heads up.

  2. My wife found these online via email. Once I read the online info, I just fell in love with them. We used them for our recent trip to Disney World and saved us from paying $3 a bottle.

    I was skeptical about the difference in taste but I was pleasantly surprised.
