this is not a style-related post, but in the spirit of consumerism, i’d like to promote my new favorite thing: the bobble, a recycled, self-filtering water bottle. i saw these on the shelf at central market while i was during my usual trip to replenish my ever-dwindling supply of cherry sours.
according to the website, the bobble was developed to combat the “costs bottled water imposes on our environment and ourselves.” (did you know americans spend $17 billion on portable water? and that 1.5 million barrels of oil are used annually to make plastic water bottles?)
bobbles are bpa-free and come in 3 different sizes (13 oz., 18.5 oz., and 34 oz.) and a wide array of colors. what’s fun is that the replacement filters (to be changed every 2 months) are also available in a wide array of colors, so you can always mix it up!
for someone who drinks a ton of water, this is a godsend. i really wish i had a bobble when i lived in arizona, where the tap water is absolutely disgusting.
