For those of you who may not know, Shark Tank is a show on ABC that features business pitches from aspiring entrepreneurs to a panel of potential investors. A lot of cool and crazy inventions come through the episodes, so as you can imagine, I geeked out at picking my prize. I immediately went for the Gobie H20 filtered water bottle.
But really, I had no idea how cool it actually was.
The Gobie H20 is the brainchild of Ari Hoffman and Rusty Allen. Their main endeavor was to encourage sustainability in the form of reducing the use of plastic and providing our natural right to clean water.
The first week of using it I thought, “Okay, this is different.” Its design is one of a kind and was created with form, function and even sexiness in mind.
The body is made of a plastic material called Tritan which is currently the highest grade plastic on the market. What makes it so great? It’s BPA free, dishwasher safe and ridiculously strong. That’s why. But along with this sturdy material the design incorporates a FlexFlo grip to give you the squeezability that plastic bottles offer. It carries 22oz of liquid goods, has a comfortable ergo-mouthpiece, and my favorite part, a finger loop. This may seem like a small deal, but I like that this frees both hands allowing me to text and carry things while holding it.
Here’s the soul of what makes this product unreal – its active carbon filter. This bad baby lasts for three months, or up to 100 gallons of water – you guys, that’s 1,067 single-use water bottles! And it’s made out of coconut shells, which means that it’s biodegradable – my other favorite part!
Okay, I’m almost done, but I have one more thing to show you all! So, when you think of a filter for water you may think, “Right on, clean, safe water!” But do you really want to see how strong this filter is? Watch.
I know, I know. It’s pretty amazing; you don’t have to tell me. But now you know about all of the good that Gobie H20 does for you and your planet. Spread the word.
