WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA, USA (June, 2011)  — VAPUR® Inc., the company behind the original foldable, flexible, reusable water bottle — the “Anti-Bottle — introduced its signature .5L  single, as well as the Fun Size two-pack .4L version of Vapur Anti-Bottles at the Interior Lifestyle Tokyo Show, June 1-3, 2011. The original, authentic Vapur Anti-Bottles stand tall when full and can be rolled, folded or flattened when empty, easily fitting into pockets, purses and packs. “Vapur Anti-Bottles are a global hit with consumers who care about the environment and who recognize how much money they can save by drinking filtered tap water instead of bottled water,” said Brent Reinke, co-founder of Vapur. “Anti-bottles are the most convenient reusable option on the market, because consumers can take them anywhere.
