Are you a fan of filtered water? What are you drinking these days? We long-ago tried to give up the bottle habit (so much waste and expense) and carry a bottle with us or rely on good ol' tap water at home. But the results of our experiments weren't always the best.
The folks at Bobble took the idea of filtered water and scaled it down. They don't have a sink filter--instead they started with a slim cylinder that pops into a lightweight re-usable bottle. The basic bottles ($59.99 for a set of six) are all over Brooklyn, in schools, offices and at home. Light, effective and cute--a mom's dream.
Now Bobble is going big--well, slightly bigger at least with a filtered water jug ($29.99). We made it to the press party in NYC a few weeks ago to see the launch. A pretty sight.
The jug filters water quickly with a carbon filter. I set my sink on a low, steady stream over the filter and in a few moments the jug was full of filtered water. Each jug comes with a date dial so you know when to change the filter (about 2 months). The 64oz Jug is BPA-free and comes in 6 colors. Filters cost $9.99 per replacement.
Designed by Karim Rashid, the jug is sleek and table-worthy. Look for them at Target and also WaterBobble.com
Momtrends was not paid for this post. We did get a jug (glug, glug)
