Vapur Review and Giveaway

Have you heard about the global water crisis? Hopefully your answer is a big fat "YES!" and you've already started doing your part to stop it. If you haven't, well, it's time to get on the bandwagon! Bottled water has become a huge industry in the United States and around the rest of the world. Every year 38 billion water bottles go into landfills...38 billion! I can't even wrap my head around all the wasted land and resources that could be used instead of having disgusting dumps! Only 23% of water bottles used are recycled! It's ridiculous. You know what I say? Stop using disposable water bottles all together! If you aren't worried about landfills, then worry about oil! It takes 17 million barrels of it to make the water bottles in the US market each year! Oil that could fuel 1.3 million cars for a year.

The solution: buy a reusable water bottle instead of buying cases of cheap plastic ones each week. Invest in a filter and you will save hundreds of dollars! My family did this a while ago and never looked back.

The people at Vapur were generous enough to send me one of their bottles to try out...and supply one for me to send to one of you as well!

I've tried quite a few water bottles in my life. What makes this one stand out is it's portability! You can fold it right up and put it in your purse, backpack, whatever- but when full it will stand up just like a regular water bottle! It comes with a matching carabiner so you can even clip it to things- I found this very handy when exercising! Another plus- you can put it in the freezer and the dishwasher.

My final words on this product: I love it, seriously. If you're a student this is especially perfect for you. Instead of carrying heavy books and a heavy water bottle across campus you can simply fold the Vapur up in your bag and then fill it once you arrive to your building. Another thing I really like about his is that if the cap breaks you don't have to buy a whole new one, Vapur sells replacement spouts (4 for $2.95). I'm still sort of shocked that you get 4 for that price, when I first saw the listing I assumed it was for one...

Alright, like I said before there's one for you too! Here it is:

It is actually purple but my camera kept making it blue. The small picture on the bottom of the package is more accurate. So, how do you get it? Here are the rules:

1) You must be a follower of my blog, I will check.

3) This giveaway is open internationally.

  1. Cool giveaway! :D
    That's a cool looking flat bottle :P
    Plastic bottles are lame, nobody wants to recycle so they just dump them on the side of the road. Losers.

  2. Your form keeps cutting out on me. Please let me know if you got my entry. And that is the coolest bottle ever. I've never heard of it before.

  3. Technopathetic- I know, it's awesome! And yeah, I hate seeing all the litter! More people need to start caring!

    Perrypie- Yup I got your entry!

  4. What an awesome bottle. I'm plotting some birthday presents looking at these now...

    Thank you :)

  13. Thanks for this post! I'm always grabbing last minute or forgetting my clunky aluminum water bottle on my way out the door. This will be so much easier to actually throw IN my bag (the alumies are too darn big) and be on my way.

    Never would have found them without you! Oh, okay, maybe not NEVER, but certainly would have been later.
