Here at betacup HQ, we love design and we especially love coming across design ideas like this that address large scale environmental challenges.
We were told about Vapur via a good friend and advisor to the betacup, Ryan Fix and we absolutely love it.
According to their website Vapur is the most portable refillable water bottle on the planet. And by making tap water more portable, they hope to make bottled water obsolete.
What we like about their approach is that they have created a product that is both sexy and desirable, as well as functional and convenient.
From their website:
“Unlike rigid water bottles, Vapur is completely collapsible. This means it goes more places and fits in tighter spaces than any other bottle. Whether you are hiking the trails, passing through airport security or visiting the museum with your family, Vapur makes water infinitely portable.”
What do you think? What would the coffee carrying equivalent look like?
Hopefully when we enter into the design phase of the betacup, we’ll see ideas as innovative and exciting as Vapur.
