Brief Analysis of the Product

  • As the name suggests, the collapsible water bottle is a compact vessel that holds your beverage and after you have finished it and need to free up space in your bag or hands, you can simply minimize its' volume by snapping it into a mini bottle size.
  • The silicone material that the bottle is made of is soft and flexible which allows for the easy movement of the bottle and the water inside.
  • When I go for a walk, it is very convenient to stow away the small bottle in my pocket or backpack when I'm more than halfway done with it.
  • The cap is very secure, and the silicone is strong and not flimsy, so the safety of your beverage is ensured.

Key Features that Promote Sustainability

  • Reusability & Minimal Waste: Unlike a flimsy plastic water bottle or a thin paper cup, the silicone collapsible bottle is sturdy and made of silicone that allows for the flexibility of whatever size you need. This ensures that the user can use this bottle infinitely instead of having to recycle it or dispose of it, and create an unnecessary waste. Silicone is reusable AND recyclable, so even if you do decide to buy a new silicone bottle, your old silicone bottle can be recycled.
  • Safe: Collapsible bottles are made of food-grade, 100% non-toxic silicone which ensures the safety of the user and doesn't alter the taste of the drink or add impurities in it.
  • Convenience: For users that go on long hikes and walks outdoors, holding extra baggage in hands is annoying and troublesome, so the bottle's ability to collapse is another reason why it can free up hands.

Features that Reduce Sustainability

  • Cleaning: Although the collapsible bottle is convenient and safe, it is quite high maintenance to clean. The exterior gets dirty fast, especially for individuals that go on hikes in the outdoors. The interior is hard to clean out, in the little crevices that cause the bottle to fold up.
  • Temperature of Beverages: Another con of this bottle is that it can't really hold hot beverages, and can only go up till warm drinks, but nothing hot. This can be a hinderance in the user's lifestyle, if they prefer hot drinks, causing them to avoid this bottle.
