Reusable bottles are definitely a hot trend. We own a few and I prefer using them over purchasing bottled water. Reusable bottles save you money and are eco-conscious. But I have to admit that I’m not crazy about drinking tap water. Fortunately there’s a new bottle called bobble that filters the water as you drink it.
The bobble arrived in a recycled cardboard box. The design of the bottle is an hourglass shape and the filters come in bright colors. bobble is made of clear recycled plastics, are FDA approved and free from nasty chemicals (BPA, Phthalates and PVC.).
How does bobble work? I took this passage from their site:
bobble has an activated carbon filter which has a slight electro-positive charge, making it attractive to chemicals and impurities. As the water passes over the positively charged carbon surface, the negative ions of the contaminants are drawn to the surface of the carbon granules.
Got it? Good. I did a taste test and I’m not sure if it’s psychosomatic but the water did taste “cleaner” and didn’t have that “tap water” taste. The bobble is a little hard to squeeze when drinking. My husband didn’t particularly care for having to squeeze it since he likes “guzzling” water. Plus, the plastic is lightweight and he was afraid of breaking the bobble.
The cost of the bobble is $10 and the filter should be changed every 2 months. The filer costs $7 and in the long run is cheaper than buying bottled water. Saving money is key! My husband isn’t sold on this product but I’ll keep using it to see how the bottle lasts up over continued use. The bottles come in four different sizes. 34 oz, 18.5 oz, 13 oz and the latest addition is their baby 13 oz bottle. Looks like bobble is available at various stores including Bed Bath & Beyond, JCPenny and Macy’s. You can also purchase bobble on their site: www.waterbobble.com.
That’s IT Mommy friend, Heather, suggested adding stickers to the bottle to give it some more character. My daughter liked that idea!
