Growing up as a girl, bottled water that you bought at a store was a thing of the future, instead we just drank straight from the tap. However, in 2014, drinking bottled water is more mainstream, and with that comes a whole host of environmental and health concerns that we may tend to overlook.
According to the website Ban The Bottle; Americans used about 50 billion single-use plastic water bottles last year. However, the U.S.’s recycling rate for plastic is only 23 percent, which means 38 billion water bottles – more than $1 billion worth of plastic – are wasted each year3.
- The recommended eight glasses of water a day, at U.S. tap rates equals about $.49 per year; that same amount of bottled water is about $1,400.
- Making bottles to meet America’s demand for bottled water uses more than 17 million barrels of oil annually, enough to fuel 1.3 million cars for a year1. And that’s not even including the oil used for transportation.
And, what about chlorine?
Chlorine was originally used in our water to combat water-borne illnesses, however we must remember it is a chemical, and absorbing it may not be such a good idea. Not to mention, consuming too much chlorine has been linked to a variety of health concerns like asthma, cancer, heart disease and a higher miscarriage and birth defect rates – scary stuff.
So What Can We Do ?
Using reusable water bottles is a HUGE step in the right direction. Fill up your bottle with water from a tap, and if you do not like the taste of your water or you are worried about impurities, try it with a filter; no matter what, this is going to be a better option than participating in the single-use plastic water bottle epidemic, which also contributes to littering and damaging our planet, but that is a whole other article.
Or, better yet, use a bottle that has a filter built-in….
Introducing the bobble SPORT
The new bobble SPORT bottle is a hydrated water filtration system which uses a replaceable carbon filter, in effect removing chlorine and impurities from standard tap water. Each filter astoundingly equates to drinking 300 single-serve bottles of water!
As the name suggests, the bobble SPORT is perfect for a busy on-the-go Mummy lifestyle, use it at the gym, or fit it perfectly into your stroller cup holder. We never stop!
It has a molded in-grip feature, comes in seven pretty colors, is made in the USA, is dishwasher safe, and has a carry cap lid so you do not lose it, which personally is really handy for me as I always lose lids. It is also free of BPA, phthalates and PVC.
By drinking just under four, 22 ounce water filled bobble SPORT a day, you will easily hit the suggested 8 cup a day minimum of water – easy peasy!
Everything helps, do what you can. Thanks for stopping by Willy B Mum.
This is perfect for my son! He loves tap water and hates bottled water, so the built in filter feature would be perfect!

Me too! Something for everybody.
The best part of the bottle is convenience for healthy water! Love being able to take it anywhere!
To me, it’s made in the USA, free of BPA, phthalates and PVC are the most appealing features of the Bobble!
Thank You for the chance

First off, I love all the colors of the Bobbles. Second off, I really love that they have a grip so the bottle is easy to hold.
I love that it has a replaceable carbon filter. I use LifeFactory bottles but since I don’t drink tap water I can’t refill when I’m on the go but the Bobble would solve this problem!
The most appealing feature is the replaceable carbon filter.
