It seems that everyone is concerned with going ‘green’ these days. Lack of planning and foresight has caused so much unnecessary waste and use of precious resources. Vapur has created another way to conserve.
Vapur puts a new spin on the reusable water bottle, or ‘anti-bottle’ rather. We received ours in green and pink. The other colors available are cyan blue, green, and smoke. My first impression was favorable but it was hard to actually bring myself to use them. Why? Because I am so used to using regular bottled water. When I did though, I felt silly for not doing so earlier!
My daughter thinks they are fabulous. I filled up a pitcher with tap water and put it in the refrigerator. The directions say you should rinse the bottles with hot water before use. I did so and then filled them will the cooled water. My daughter’s reaction was so silly. Here’s the gist of our conversation:
“Yum, I LOVE these!”
“They are so fun. These are perfect for kids.”
“Why do you say that?”
“Regular water bottles are, yeah. But these are fun. Kids will love them. They can stand up, you don’t have to squeeze them, and they are so fun!”
You get the picture. She really liked them, so much that her vocabulary strangely shrunk . . . When your child describes a water bottle as ‘fun’ then you know you’re onto something. If I can make drinking water an exciting thing for my daughter, I’m all for it.
When full, they stand in the side holder on our car door. When empty, they just fold flat or you can even roll up. And they make storage so much easier! When you’re done you don’t have to worry about finding a recycle bin or lugging around an empty, awkward bottle. Vapur bottles are also totally ‘green’ and extremely useful.
- Capacity: 16 oz (473 ml)
- Ultra-durable BPA-Free polymer
- Stands when full – rolls, folds or flattens when empty
- Carabiner attached for easy carry
- Writable text area for personalization
- Dishwasher safe (top rack)
- Freeze it, use it as an ice pack, and drink it as it thaws
- Soy ink, wind power, and all-recycled material used
The best part is that they are dishwasher-safe. I threw them on the top rack and it seemed to wash well. I have to see how it stands up to repeated usage. If I need to replace them, Vapur bottles sell for as low as $8.95.
I plan on keeping one in the car and one in the house. I think these anti-bottles are a very clever idea and help us do our part in practicing the three R’s – reduce, recycle, reuse.
Disclosure: I was provided with two Vapur bottles at no cost in order to test the product. The review presented here is 100% my honest opinion.
