These Water Bottles Solve A Huge Problem

While a lot of products come across our desks that we can
only tilt our heads at and laugh about, this innovation is actually really useful. Hydaway is a collapsible
water bottle that you can simply squish down and stick in your pocket after you
finish drinking.

We try to bring our own eco-friendly water bottles with us
whenever possible, but unfortunately we still end up buying our fair share
of the disposable, plastic ones. Part of the problem is forgetfulness; the other part, admittedly, has to do with not wanting to lug around a big, reusable water
bottle forever.

Thanks to a fully funded Kickstarter campaign that is now
taking preorders, we’ll never be encumbered by a giant water bottle's weight — or tempted to buy a disposable one because it’s more
convenient. Hydaway’s creator, Niki Singlaub, wanted a product that would truly kick up the convenience factor while he
traveled as a freelance product developer.

His clever invention is already
a hit. In only a month, he raised $263,086 on Kickstarter, which means he exceeded his original goal of $20,000 by 1315%. Individual Hydaway bottles cost $20 each,
which may sound a little steep, but it's not if you’re regularly buying plastic
bottles. And, the Earth will thank you. Now, you just have to remember to actually put the bottle in your purse before leaving the house. (Foodbeast)
