Garbage pollution is a serious problem that no one really wants to talk about. In fact, there is a swath of garbage permeating around the sea known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, and has been said to be the size of the state of Texas, though its density is up for debate. Much of this trash behemoth is comprised of plastic, a very useful material that I’m sure we’re all thankful for but can agree, it’s getting a little out of hand.
Two guys who grew up in a small coastal city near Melbourne, Australia noticed this trend of plastic water bottles polluting their beaches and parks. These two guys decided they wanted to do something about it, so they created the memobottle. A BPA and BPS free, reusable water bottle made of Tritan plastic that is not only environmentally friendly but elegantly designed and fashionable.
Three years ago, they brought you the A5 and A6 which were a huge success. Since the last campaign, an estimated 1.9 million plastic bottles have not gone into a landfill or ocean. Now they bring you the A7 and the Slim.
The A7 is small bottle holding about 6 oz of liquid that fits conveniently in a back pocket or clutch. The Slim is only 6mm wider but nearly twice the length, and able to contain 15 oz of liquid. Their whole collection combines modern aesthetics with modern sensibilities.
In addition to the A7 and the Slim, memobottle is offering slew of accessories for the bottles that look great and compliment their products. Among them are their leather sleeves which fit snuggly around their bottles and comes with a little pocket. The premium leather lanyard matches the sleeve nicely, and is perfect for going on a hike.
If you’re feeling particularly fancy, spring for the copper plated stand and plant your memobottle onto it like a boss. Look at is a beacon of inspiration, an artefact of human ingenuity, and as a compass for what’s possible when you put your mind to a problem and aim to solve it.
Approximately 480 million single-use water bottles were used in 2016, memobottle’s goal is to cut that number in half by 2020. Help them get there by cutting down the needless waste of single-use plastic water bottles by pledging towards their campaign.
