Did you know that each year 1.5 million tons of plastic waste is attributed to bottled water? The number is extremely alarming as this figure continues to rise globally. Many of us are unaware that this figure translates to a consumption of 47 million gallons of oil per year just to produce the bottles alone. With a finite amount of natural resources available, we all need to do our part to alleviate the strain we’re placing on the environment. In fact, in most developed countries, water systems are so well regulated that there is no discernible health differences between tap water and bottled water. One company, which is trying to change the way we approach bottled water is Move Collective. Their Bobble water bottles, aim to reduce our carbon footprint and at the same time filter contaminants and impurities out of the water we drink.
What’s so great about their design is that the water itself is filtered as you drink. There’s no need to sit and wait for the water to be filtered as with traditional filtration methods. This allows you to refill the Bobble as you please, saving you time, money and the environment in the long run. So for you bottled water addicts out there, you can still enjoy the same great taste of bottled water, but at only a fraction of the cost.
