From saving the environment to saving you cash, the benefits of carrying around a reusable water bottle are well-known. But the products currently on the market can be big and bulky, making it tempting to leave them at home and buy bottled water instead. With memobottle, creators Jesse Leeworthy and Jonathan Byrt hope to turn consumers on to a water bottle that's both earth-friendly and convenient.
The bottles, as City Lab recently reported, hold 180, 375, or 750 milliliters of water (6 ounces, 12 ounces, or 25 ounces) in a package that's less than 2 inches thick. Memobottle's stylish clear-flask design is built for maximum portability. The medium A6 model fits easily in a pant pocket while the A5 can be tucked into messenger bags like a book or laptop. The 6-ounce A7, the smallest bottle, is petit enough for kids or to carry in small clutches.
The product was awarded the gold title for Fashion and Travel Accessories by the A'Design Awards earlier this year. And considering that water bottles can take as long as 1000 years to decompose in a landfill, this is one stylish purchase you can feel good about making.
The A7 ($22), A6 ($28), and the A5 ($36) bottles are all available to order on Amazon.
