“Delivered:” is a series in which we look at crowdfunded ideas that have successfully shipped to their supporters. We dive into the final product, after its long journey from concept to fulfillment”

The HYDAWAY was previously released on Kickstarter. After listening to feedback from the previous customers it is back and it is new and improved. New features that have been added to the original are a new grip system at the base of the bottle so that it can be expanded more easily, a slimmer profile on the bottle so that it is easier to store. And now new larger sizes so that it can store more water. It also includes a new traveling carry case to store the water bottle when it is not in use.

The HYDAWAY is solving a ecological problem that has been caused by plastic water bottles. Single use plastics are digging us into a bigger waste problem every single day. Plastic lasts for  thousands of years and turns into micro particles that have been found in the most remote corners of our beautiful planet. Globally humans buy a million plastic bottles per minute. Plastic in the ocean will outweigh the fish by 2050. In the middle of the pacific ocean is a patch of 1.6 million square kilometers of garbage that is just floating in the ocean. Since 2015 HYDAWAY has prevented over 1,100 metric tons of plastic waste from reaching our oceans streets and landfills.

The HYDAWAY was created to try to solve the problem of single use plastics. The collapsible water bottle is easy to take with me on the go. It is easy to clean, being dishwasher safe and  it has a wide- open mouth for hand washing. The silicone that it is made from is non toxic and made from BPA- free plastic. The water bottle is thirst quenching and expands to hold 18 or 28 ounces of water. The silicone bottle is completely leak proof and water does not seep out of the cap. The HYDAWAY is extremely portable because I can collapse it to fit into my purse, or even in my cup holder in the car.

There is a handle on the top of the water bottle that makes it easy to hang from a carabiner, from backpacks, or from hiking packs. The water bottle has a new carbon filter to remove taste and odors from the water for a more refreshing hydration experience. So that I am not left with strange tastes from different water sources. It also has a new improved ergonomic expansion grip that helps the bottle unfold with ease. When your HYDAWAY is purchased you can choose from two different options, the sip friendly, or spout lid, both of these designs feature an innovative flip-up and carry handle.
