The Hydaway – a water bottle that can fit in your pocket

 

Hydaway useHow many times have you realized you’ve forgotten your water bottle at home, and ended up buying a plastic bottled water?

We like the idea of bringing a reusable water bottle with us everywhere we go, but they’re often rather bulky, and it’s easy to leave them behind.

Thanks to climate change – for whichever reason, that yellow thing in the Sky has some responsibility too – there have been knock on effects. Cleaner, greener alternatives and materials which are fast turning us away from fossil fuelled power on a national level.

You get to pick out all the scrumptious things you’ll be feeding yourself for the coming week, but you also have to maneuver everything from the store into your home.
