Foldable Silicone Water Bottle
Description: This water bottle is made of food-grade silicone, and silicone is made of silica (sand). There is no plastic in this material; it is BPA free. When empty, it folds into a tiny roll that is easy to transport. Once filled, the bottle is skinny enough to fit into a narrow backpack pocket, yet it holds 500ml of water (almost 17 fl oz). It withstands both high and low temperatures which makes it suitable to pop this water-filled bottle into a freezer (just remember that water expands once frozen) or fill it with some soothing warm tea. Wide opening makes it easy to clean.
Why it's green: You will never need to buy another bottled water as long as you have access to water fountains or water refilling stations. We banned plastic water bottles in our homes.
Carry this bottle while folded through TSA. Fill up with water at a water fountain at the airport. Clip onto your backpack or a purse. No plastic bottles to discard. No need to ask flight attendants for water.
P.S. Silicone tends to absorb surrounding flavors. Here is a little secret to have your water taste better: before the first use, steep your favorite hot tea overnight, and discard it in the morning. Your water will have a hint of that flavor until your next brew :). My favorite tea is raspberry. My kids ask why their water taste like raspberry. And I say, that's because Mommy is magical.
