My daughter Sara was talking at lunch about how to live a more minimalist life, use less trash and eat cleaner. All good goals. I was intrigued and there are so many products out there with the same idea in mind: Waste not, Want not.
BOBBLE is a stylish, reusable bottle that filters water as you drink, using a replaceable carbon filter. When water passes through the filter, the carbon removes chlorine and organic contaminants. Bobble is intended for municipal tap water making water better, with every sip. It comes in two different sizes (18.5oz/34oz) and a range of different filter colors to pick from.
Fashioned by leading industrial designer Karim Rashid, Bobble is a beautiful, sleek alternative to single-serve plastic water bottles, which harm the earth (and your wallet). Every filter equates to 300 single-serve bottles. After a year, you’ve removed thousands of bottles from the environment, simply by filtering the water from your tap. Bobble is BPA-free, and free of Phthalates and PVC.
TO-GO WARE: I noticed Sara had this cool packet of utensils and instead of using plastic, which is terrible for the environment and harmful to sea life, she showed me this cool bamboo set she bought to bring with her lunch everyday.
RePEaT Reusable Bamboo Utensil Set rounds out your toolkit for a waste-free life on the go. Enjoy eating with utensils made of bamboo, a highly durable and sustainable resource. Keep a set in your bag, glove compartment, lunch box or desk, and see how many disposable utensils you can pass by. Includes a knife, fork, spoon and chopsticks (which double nicely as coffee stirrers). A handy carabineer allows you to clip and go. These utensil sets not only save plastic waste from entering our landfills and oceans, they also have a holder made of RPET, a sturdy, washable material made of recycled plastic bottles. We like to call it “RePEaT” because it lets plastic waste reincarnate into something healthy, reusable and fun.
