Product of the Week: WELLY Reusable Bottle

Did you know… Americans use more than 29 billion plastic water bottles each year and only 1 in 6 is recycled, (National Geographic)? Our planet is being polluted with water bottles that take hundreds of years to disintegrate and create a tremendous burden on the environment. Many of these plastic bottles end up in landfills, streams and oceans. When we make the conscious effort to stop purchasing single serve bottles and invest in reusable bottles, we can start to combat this environmental issue and make our world a better place.

Our featured “Product of the Week”, WELLY Bottle, is a sustainable, filtered and sleek reusable bottle. WELLY is designed to be “an easy-to-carry, reusable, BPA-free water bottle with a built-in filter made from activated and carbonized coconut shells that purifies your water as you drink it”. The thoughtful design of WELLY is what captured our attention. From the shape of the bottle to the design of the cap, each piece was carefully crafted to be convenient and functional. Below are just a few features that make the design of WELLY standout…

  • wellyA mouthpiece that is protected within the bottle’s cap, ensuring it stays clean, yet easily accessible by tapping the bottle’s trigger
  • Bamboo hand panels you can squeeze to accelerate water flow
  • A finger loop that makes carrying your bottle by hand or on a carabiner easy and secure
  • Feet on the bottle’s bottom for stability
  • An opening large enough to accommodate ice cubes
  • A slim profile to minimize the space required to carry the bottle in a bag or purse

The company goes one step further and places emphasis on creating not only a superior bottle but one rooted in sustainability. “WELLY considers all three pillars of sustainability (environmental, economic, social) in every decision that we make. From our materials that we source to our packaging used to ship WELLY to your doorstep, we aim to minimize our carbon footprint while reducing the demand for oil and plastic from our world.”

We know that staying hydrated is just one small step we can make to living a healthy lifestyle. Many of us try our best to stay hydrated throughout the day, but it can be quite a challenge if you are not reaching for a convenient disposable water bottle. HYDAWAY is a handy alternative to disposable plastic water bottles.

hydaway“HYDAWAY is an easy-to-use, reusable water bottle designed for people with active lifestyles who are searching for an alternative way to carry water that’s just as convenient as buying bottled water.” With 50 billion plastic water bottles being thrown away each year, and less than 25% being recycled, HYDAWAY is offering an environmentally friendly alternative. The compact design of HYDAWAY makes it truly innovative and an ideal companion for an active lifestyle.

“Whether you’re a frequent flier, a mile-a-minute mom, a weekend warrior or just someone who thirsts for thoughtful design, HYDAWAY fits the life you live. No more lugging around bulky ’empties’, no more disposables in landfills, no more hard to clean bottles. HYDAWAY is flat out ready to go, whenever and wherever.”

From a design perspective, we love seeing the stages of development on the HYDAWAY project timeline!
