Bobble Filter Review- Eco Friendly Water Filter Bottle
Bobble Water Filter Bottle Review
If I was stranded on an island and only allowed to have a few items, I want my Bobble water filter bottle.
I was introduced to this interesting invention by my sister, a new yoga-loving-gal. She said everyone in her studio was drinking out of this bottle. ‘So if everyone jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge, you would happily follow?’ She replied, ‘Yes, with the Bobble in my hand!’
The idea of having a filter built in a water bottle was intriguing. I borrowed her bottle to test it out. That night, I went on Amazon and ordered one immediately, in my favorite color.
A few days later the package arrived and I thanked my UPS guy as I rushed to bring the package in my house. I opened it, excited to hold in my hands…the Bobble! I can just fill it up with regular tap water and off I go!
Cool Features of the Bobble Water Bottle

- The activated carbon filter has a similar function to the filter jug that you already have at home.
- The filter is easy to replace, just need to unscrew one part and change it for a new filter.
- You only need to change the filter over 200 uses, which probably average to about 4-6 months.
- It is made in the USA, from recyclables.
- You can choose from 13 oz, 18.5oz, 34oz in red, yellow, green, black, magenta, lavender and blue.
- It's light and portable
How Does the Small Water Filtration System Work?
The carbon water filter eliminates harmful chemicals such as chlorine, as well as toxins from tap water. As you sip from the cap, water passes through the filter where negative ions are captured by carbon granules.
It meets the NSF International Standard 42 for filtered water, which is very strict and some water bottles don’t even cut it.
The Eco-Friendly Filtered Water Bottle
By drinking with this bottle you are taking one step towards saving the environment. Americans spend over 15 billion dollars on water bottles every year.
Disposable water bottles create high piles of trash that hurt the environment and pose health risks for everyone. Every water bottle will end up in a landfill, and will take approximately 2000 years to decompose.
If you are trying to go green and reduce your carbon footprint, you can start using the Bobble water as an alternative to buying plastic bottles.
The bobble water bottle may be a steep investment at first, but it is a great way to save money in the long run. If you are spending hundreds of money on bottled water each year, you might want to consider investing in this cool eco-friendly gadget.
The bottom line is, buying water bottles can add up quickly. Buying a bobble water bottle could also mean you don’t have to buy an expensive water filter system, at least not yet.

What Do I Think of the Bobble?
The size was perfect for me, at 24 oz. Although the bottle holds 24 oz, you have to account for displacement from the water filter. I appreciate the light narrow design in the center of the bottle that makes it easier to grip.
I thought the Bobble water bottle looked really chic, and is actually quite the conversation starter. Each Bottle came with a filter attached in its lid. It reminds me of a sports-style model where you flip the top and sip though it. The water goes through the filter as it flows through your mouth.
What I like most about this bottle is that I can fill it up anywhere I go. I hike very often with my dog Oakley, and don’t prefer to carry more than 2 bottles in my backpack. I can fill it up anywhere at the gym, on the trail, even at the office.
Although I already have an advanced water filter system in my home, sometimes I forget to bring a bottle of water to the gym. That problem is now solved since I can just refill my Bobble at the water fountain.
Does it taste better than tap water? Obviously yes. Does it taste better than the expensive home filtered systems? No, not quite. You are using tap water and a portable device which can only do so much for municipal waters. The Bobble can definitely replace the 24-cases of plastic bottled water that everyone has been buying!
I have been using this bottle for all my water needs. If you’re in the market for a product like this—go for it.
