Eco-Message in a Bottle: New Vapur Anti-Bottle Unfolds and Unrolls in Canada
February 22, 2010
Anti-Bottle meets increasing consumer demand for affordable, convenient and eco-friendly options to disposable plastic bottles.
February 22, 2010(Toronto, ON) - The water bottle is back with an environmental-vengeance with the launch of Vapur's revolutionary Anti-Bottle in Canada. With nearly 200 billion plastic bottles used globally, Vapur addresses a growing issue and helps eliminate the tremendous amount of plastic bottle waste headed to landfills every year. Unlike traditional rigid bottles, Vapur's Anti Bottle is flexible, stands upright when full and can be rolled, folded or flattened when empty, easily fitting into purses, briefcases and even pockets. Distributed exclusively in Canada by The Tate Group, the innovative design of the Vapur Anti-Bottle maximizes space when empty and can hold up to 16 ounces of liquid when full. The highly durable bottle is freezable, dishwasher safe and BPA-free (Bisphenol A), which means it can be safely reused again and again. From design and manufacturing, to shipping and distribution, right through to consumer use, the environment is considered throughout each step of the Vapur life cycle. The packaging is made from recycled paperboard and is printed with soy ink, using wind power for the printing process. Manufactured in the United States, Vapur is lightweight and ships flat, providing dual environmental benefits - up to 5 times more bottles per shipment container means fewer trucks on the road, lower fuel consumption and reduced carbon emissions.
