The Quenchers are our first series of do-it-yourself Anti-Bottles designed for kids and kids at heart. In a consumer-driven world, we felt that kids were the answer to finally dumping the disposable water bottle habit. The Quenchers became a kid-focused extension of the Vapur mission to make drinking good ole fashioned water easy, sustainable and fun! But in order to create the Quenchers, we had to get in touch with our inner child.
The goal was to ultimately develop a product that kids would love and that would help keep them hydrated while encouraging the use of reusable water bottles. With the Vapur Creative Team (Jason Carignan, Frez Ferrino, Grant England & Jenny Guy), coupled with the unique stylings of Mike Kunkel, a cartoonist with 20+ years of experience at studios like Warner Bros, Nickelodeon and Disney, the work began to bring the Quenchers to life.
After about a year of designing, prototyping, character development and kid-input, Bo, Lolli, Fuse and Splash (the Quenchers) arrived in the form of Vapur’s first customizable Anti-Bottles.
Now, these four lovable characters are on a mission to keep kids everywhere happy, healthy and hydrated while giving waste the boot! True to all Anti-Bottles, they’re proudly made in the United States, dishwasher safe, BPA-free and reusable. Each Quencher Anti-Bottle comes with three sticker sheets of facial features and add-ons, so little ones can create a hydration companion that’s uniquely their own.

“Four lovable characters on a mission to keep kids happy, healthy and hydrated.”
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Aug. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Vapur announces its first series of do-it-yourself Anti-Bottles, the Quenchers, designed specifically for kids. The Quenchers – Bo, Lolli, Fuse and Splash – are four lovable characters on a mission to keep kids happy, healthy and hydrated while giving waste the boot!

“Since its launch, Vapur has always been a brand guided by innovation, design and fun,” says Vapur Marketing Manager, Jenny Guy. “We wanted to develop a product that kids would absolutely love and that would not only help keep them healthy and hydrated, but also would educate them on the importance of using a reusable bottle.”
With type two diabetes and childhood obesity on the rise, it is more critical than ever for kids to establish healthy habits like drinking water. According to NaturalNews.com, drinking water instead of sugary drinks can eliminate an average of 235 excess calories per day among children and adolescents. By helping to cut out the empty, sugary calories and by replacing them with water, Vapur aims to curb these epidemics. The Quenchers were created to reach out to kids in a way that makes staying healthy in a sustainable way, trendy.
Accompanying the Quencher Anti-Bottle launch is also the release of Vapur’s online Quencher game. Kids (and kids at heart) can visit www.VapurQuenchers.com, create a Quencher and share their designs with friends. This website also includes a gallery of designs, character bios, wallpapers and coloring pages available for download.
