constructed out of three layers of polyethylene, american company vapur has expanded on their BPA-free antibacterial flat-pack bottles to filter and remove up-to 99.99% of bacteria, protozoa and microbial disease from drinking water. introducing ‘microfilter’, the technology cleanses up to 1000 liters throughout its lifecycle using sureaqua straws. the bottle is designed to stand up/right when filled up and can be rolled, folded or flattened when empty, making it easy to use and carried almost everywhere users desire to go.

  • I love how the hook comes down to stop the bottle from unfolding.
    Simple but a great solution.
