The product’s packaging is made from recycled paperboard and is printed with soy ink, using wind power for the printing process.
“We’ve found that our consumers not only care deeply about the environment, they also recognise how much money they can save by drinking filtered tap water instead of bottled water,” added Reinke.
Vapur Anti-Bottles come in two convenient sizes for greater options – the signature 500ml version and a handy 400ml version, the latter which is sold in pairs.
