We know, the last thing you need is another re-usable water bottle. The noble crusade against plastic bottles and the great BPA scare have left us with enough re-usable canteens to bottle the Pacific much less any idea what’s eco-friendly and what’s cancer-inducing.
First things first, the Vapur Anti-Bottle ($9) is not going to fix either of those problems, but it solves just about everything else wrong with bottles. The premise is deceptively simple but brilliantly executed: an ultra-portable 16 oz water bottle that stands upright when full, but rolls up for easy packing. Why did it take so long to figure this out? Vapur has thought out most everything else too – the bottle is freezable, dishwasher-safe, BPA free, manufactured in the USA using wind power and recycled materials, the Vapur Anti-Bottle comes in 5 colors, and can safely transport hot beverages or (ahem) alcohol. Perfect for air travel, backpacking, lunches, school lunches, or anywhere you don’t want to be dragging around a useless, empty bottle. Stand out from the plebeian Nalgene carriers. Vapur also commits 1% of their profits to the 1% For The Planet program and works locally with third-world communities to provide reliable clean water access.
