The Hydros Bottle: A Mission to End All Other Plastic Bottles
I was contacted a few weeks ago by the Hydros Bottle company, who offered me a chance to test out their product, the Hydros Bottle. In a nutshell, this is a chance for all of us to do a favor for the environment, and ween ourselves off the bad habit of purchasing and throwing out all of those nasty plastic bottles. Hydros bottle is a dishwasher safe plastic, BPA-free plastic bottle that features a Hydros Fast Flow Filter right there in the lid. You can fill it with tap water, and drink hand-filtered water from anywhere you go.
If you’re like me, then this sounds like a goldmine. Whether it’s real or imagined, I believe I can taste things like subtle differences in drinking water, from city to city. Maybe I’m crazy, maybe it’s that obvious, but some tap water is literally undrinkable at this point. Hydros Bottle is a real lifesaver in this kind of situation — you don’t have to buy more plastic bottles than just this one, and it’s reusable, so you won’t be littering the planet with more plastic. Apparently, technology-wise, it’s the IonArmour technology inside the bottle filter that provides a natural, antimicrobial filtering job, killing odor causing bacteria and purifying your water. And it’ll taste and smell great, which is HUGE.
What Is Operation Hydros? And Why Cameroon?
Hydros Bottle has also made a stellar commitment to our inter-connected global environment, by essentially adopting Cameroon as a pilot project, and providing the people there with safe, clean drinking water using funds gained through sales from their products. According to Hydros Bottle, “nearly 1 billion people who do not have access to clean drinking water.”
The company has committed to reinvesting profits into developing new, advanced filter technologies in order to bring the power of the Hydros Bottle to communities in need around the world. For now, every time a bottle is purchase, Hydros takes a dollar and puts it towards the effort in Cameroon, where they are building and designing a clean water infrastructure project that is planned to be “socially, economically, and environmentally viable.”
For this project, Hydros Bottle partners with the Engineers Without Borders USA to deliver fresh water to the village of Gundom. When the project there is fully funded, they will move on to a second project, building out in a manageable way from there. Sounds like a great idea to me, and hey — the Hydros Bottle really works!
