“Anti-Bottle” Caters to the Eco-Savvy Consumer”
Jason Carignan, Dave Czerwinski and Brent Reinke wanted to start a hydration revolution. The trio combined their professional experience in marketing and branding with with their passions, which included environmentally sound solutions to everyday problems, and started Vapur, a Westlake Village-based company that produces environmentally friendly, collapsible, foldable water bottles.
Jason Carignan, Vapur: “The hydration category in general is still very strong. This past year, the industry saw a significant increase in hydration product sales while many other categories declined. People are still drinking water and people are more active than ever. However, we believe that there is bound to be some fall-out among the ‘me too’ players selling parody polycarbinate, stainless and aluminum bottles.”

Hydration Making a Big Splash
VAPUR: California-based Vapur, Inc. is on a mission to make hydration incomparably portable with their Anti-Bottles: reusable, handheld, collapsible hydration products. Vapur has taken their mission further with the new Explorer Series MicroFilter, MSPR $70.
Weighing 2.7-ounces, the filter and bottle set allows users to filter water in a one-liter Anti-Bottle directly from the stream or lake. The filter is a chemical-free, hollow fiber membrane system with an absolute pore size of 0.2 microns, said to safely remove 99.9999 percent of waterborne bacteria and 99.9 percent of protozoa. The system meets U.S. EPA standards and exceeds CDC recommendations for water purity. Each MicroFilter is capable of purifying hundreds of liters of water from lakes, rivers, streams and tap water over its lifespan. It includes a stop feature so users know it has maxed out its usage when water completely stops flowing through the spout. The Anti-Bottle is manufactured in the USA, is BPA-free, freezable and dishwasher safe.
DRINK UP! While summertime sweat is a good thing (it’s your body’s air-conditioning at work), all that fluid loss puts you at risk for dehydration, whether you’re working out or relaxing at the beach. To ensure you get enough water, tote your supply in one of these BPA-free bottles.
The Travel Buddy – Reminiscent of those Capri Sun fruit drink you used to beg for as a kid, the Vapur is an 18-ounce foldable flask that flattens completely when empty for compact storage. And you can toss it in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.
