Last year over 50 million single use water bottles were sold around the world. Imagine what one could do with all that plastic! Plus, bottled water is 1,400 times more expensive than tap water, and it takes a toll on both your wallet and the environment. Jesse Leeworthy, a product design engineer, and Jonathan Byrt, a financial consultant got thinking about how they could develop a one bottle movement with a product that is just as convenient to carry around as it is to reuse. As we’re sure you know, most conventional water bottles are bulky and take up a lot of space in your bag. So Leeworthy and Byrt used a little ingenuity and came up with the memobottle.
According to the pair, “The memobottle is the balance between environmental responsibility and improved life convenience.”
Now what, you may ask, makes it so convenient? It’s basically shaped like a piece of paper, so it doesn’t take up as much space as regular water bottles, and it can sit in your bag alongside your laptop, folders and other things. Also, it’s leak-proof, so you don’t have to worry about water spilling out all over your stuff. Plus, it’s made from durable and dishwasher safe BPA-free tritan. The memobottle also comes in three sizes: that correlate to the paper size they come in: A5 holds 750 ml, A4 holds 1.25 liters, and letter holds 1.25 liters. They can also stand on their own so you can have it conveniently sit on your desk.
Leeworthy and Byrt are well past their Kickstarter goal of raising $15,000, but if you want to be one of the first to get one, you better get on it and donate to the Kickstarter fund now!
