One of the things I always worry about when I travel for swing dancing is hydration. Carrying a case of bottled water on an airplane is out of the question and buying bottled water every time you need it is not always convenient to your location or eco-friendly. Carrying my Pur water pitcher with me seems silly and would take up way too much space in my luggage. I could drink the tap water, but I really don’t want to. Wouldn’t it be great if someone made a water filter that fit in your water bottle? Then you’d only have to carry one small bottle with your luggage and simply find a tap at your destination.
I love when I can think of a simple solution to a problem and someone else has already created this solution. Pure Water 2Go offers three different sizes of their filtered water bottles and, of course replacement filters. My only disappointment is that you are not able to purchase the water bottles directly from the company. They provide a list of retailers in each state (none of which are near me!). Some of the bottles and filters are available for purchase online from various web retailers, such as Healing Water Filters. The scarcity of retail locations may have something to do with the company’s struggle to defend its patent.
I’m liking the company’s “Eco” model, which comes in a lot of different colors, and will probably pick up one of these very soon in green. 🙂
