In 2008 our founders, Richard and Stephanie Smiedt, were developing product in Asia when they passed by an open field piled high with factory waste. The scale was massive, breathtaking (quite literally). The field was a graphic illustration of the often-invisible impact of production and consumption. Richard and Stephanie felt compelled to move in a different direction.
They turned their attention towards single-serve plastic water bottles. If those bottles were exacting a murderous toll on the environment, they would simply need to reinvent them. They had seen consumer willingness to replace plastic bags in the checkout line and felt confident consumers would do the same with water bottles. The invention of bobble’s portable filter was a signature milestone; the filter makes bobble possible, and distinguishes it from the cluttered field of water bottles. With bobble, consumers could have the experience of single-serve, minus its financial and environmental cost.
bobble is a stylish, reusable bottle that filters water as you drink, using an ingenious replaceable carbon filter. When water passes through the filter, the carbon removes chlorine and organic contaminants. bobble is intended for municipal tap water making water better, with every sip.
bobble is a beautiful, sleek alternative to single-serve plastic water bottles, which harm the earth (and your wallet). Every filter equates to 300 single-serve bottles. After a year, you’ve removed thousands of bottles from the environment, simply by filtering the water from your tap. bobble is free of BPA, Phthalates and PVC. And it is guilt-free as well. Enjoy!
Bobble products come in Small (13oz), Medium (18.5oz) and Large (34oz) Single Bottles, as well as in the following colors: pink, red, yellow, green, light blue, black, lilac, and dark blue. Filter refills are also available in the same colors.
bobble jug is a beautifully designed, highly functional everyday household product. It is a faster, smarter, sleeker reimagining of the squat, slow-filtering water jugs that have hogged space in refrigerators for generations. bobble jug is also unexpectedly slim. It holds more water than its appearance would suggest, and its sleek appearance allows it to double as a serving jug. its slim design frees up more real estate inside refrigerators; it can slip neatly into refrigerator doors. Currently only available to U.S. customers. Comes in the following colors: pink, red, blue, green, black and white.
The Newest Product - Lunchboxes
We recently launched two lunchboxes, both designed by renowned industrial designer Karim Rashid.
One is a soft-cooler pack made with insulated lining that will keep food chilled and has interior pockets to hold a small bobble and food in place. The other is inspired by a bento box, with a hard case that is partitioned to hold lunch items and a small bobble.
Our first product for kids, mini-bobble, was designed to help make drinking water fun in order to encourage kids to cut down on sugary beverage intake, and our lunch boxes are specifically designed in a size to encourage portion control. We at bobble are committed to encouraging a healthy and happy lifestyle.
bobble’s bento box inspired lunch box includes 13oz bobble. designed by Karim Rashid, the hard exterior ensures food stays intact when traveling to and from school. With a semi-clear lid, it allows you to easily see what is inside.
Dishwasher safe. BPA free. Not suitable for children under 4 yrs.
We are absolutely loving these fun-looking, environmentally friendly bottle and jugs in our house! Bobble bottles and jugs are very well made and I love that we can replace 300 single-serving water bottles buy using the Bobble bottles/filters. And the Jug is great too! The water is very nice tasting, and I really love the modern look of the jug itself. My only disappointment is that I cannot find it locally, but will definitely be purchasing filters, etc online as I need to until they come to Southern Alberta retailers.
If you are looking for a fun way to replace water bottles and be more conscious of your water bottle use, look no further than Bobble.
