Carrying your own reusable water bottle cuts down on the number of plastic ones ending up in landfill but they’re bulky to keep with you all day. Tonic, a design agency in Thousand Oaks, California, has come up with a refreshing alternative. Vapur stands upright when full. When empty, you can fold or roll it up to stick it in a pocket or a handbag.
Made of ultra-durable three-ply, BPA-free polymer, Vapur bottles can be cleaned in a dishwasher’s top rack and frozen to keep water cool. Vapur’s eco-creds aren’t limited to their day-to-day use: since the bottles can be shipped flat, the journey from manufacturer to distributors and consumers is that much greener. All in all, it’s an innovative way to make it more convenient for people to drink and carry tap water.
