According to Food and Water Watch, that plastic requires up to 47 million gallons of oil per year to produce. Did you know that bottled water produces up to 1.5 million tons of plastic waste per year. Rather than being recycled, about 75 percent of the empty plastic bottles end up in our landfills, lakes, streams and oceans, where they may never fully decompose.
Not to mention how bulky they are, they never pack well in your backpack for hiking, biking or even traveling on a plane.
About the Anti-Bottle
Vapur Anti-Bottles are completely BPA-free and are constructed of three layers of ultra-durable plastic. The Anti-Bottle is designed to stand when full and can be rolled, folded or flattened when empty, making it easy to use and carry everywhere you go. Unlike rigid water bottles, that are bulky when empty, the Anti-Bottle can be easily tucked away, conveniently fitting into pockets, purses and packs. The Vapur Anti-Bottle is dishwasher safe and cleans easily on the top rack of most dishwashers. You can even freeze your Anti-Bottle for nice cold water or use it as an icepack. It comes with a convenient carabiner, making it easy to clip to your purse, belt-loop or pack.
Vapur has two sizes of the Anit-bottle available, the original .5L and the fun size .4L smaller version. They come in solid colors, fun designs, limited edition designs and now the new Artist series.
Dress your anti-bottle in a sweater. The Vapur® Sweater is a sweat-wicking, insulating bottle cover that protects your Anti-Bottle® from the elements and keeps beverages colder, longer.

Over Thirty Mommy's Thoughts
We have been enjoying our Vapur bottle. I never really liked plastic water bottled, they take up too much space and are terrible for the environment. We used the Vapur anti-bottle on a recent plane trip and it came in very handy. I rolled it up in my bag and after clearing security, I filled it up so that we would have water available to us for our 10 1/2 hour plane ride. The anti-bottle works great and it perfect for adults or even older children. I think that it is a bit too much for toddlers, my daughter had too much fun squeezing it do get the water to "jump" out.
Over all, I think the Vapur Anti-Bottle is a great idea, is perfect for hikers or anyone that wants to have water on the go and would make an excellent stocking stuffer for all types of people this Christmas season.
