I can’t say I’m a big fan of Karim Rashid, the person (which isn’t entirely fair because I don’t know him personally, only what I’ve heard of him), but it’s tough to front like he hasn’t created some effin cool shit over the course of the last two decades. So, I won’t front… and I’ll tell you that I think the Water Bobble is probably my favourite products he’s (ever) designed. From function to form, the Bobble has ‘Rebirth of Cool’ written all over it (mostly by plastic water bottle standards). Everyone should get one. Like now.

Order it online or find a store here.

“Why?” you ask, should I get a hokey looking fairy coloured bottle with a silly name? Well, you insolent little ignoramus…because our planet depends on us to take care of it, that’s why. Because the perpetuation of the human species living sustainably on Earth requires that we take our heads out of our asses now and start living like we care; like we want to be here for a while longer. The fact is, approximately 38 billion plastic bottles end up in landfills each year (I got that stat from the Water Bobble site). Yeah, 38 billion…and you thought Chinese people were growing in rapid numbers.

Enlighten yourself…spend a few minutes watching this video from storyofstuff.org. This is the story of bottled water. If that isn’t enough to convince you..ever heard of the North Pacific “Trash Vortex”?
