Two Australian designers are seeking funding for their flat water bottle Called the Memobottle

A company has designed a water bottle that’s ideal for the office worker’s bag – because it’s completely flat.

The same shape as a piece of paper, the Memobottle is a slimline, reusable water bottle that slides into your bag to lie next to books and laptops.

The reusable bottle, which can also be washed in a dishwasher, is designed to help reduce the number of plastic bottles in landfills.  

Leeworthy and Byrt from the Monington Peninsula near Melbourne, Australia say more then 600 billion single-use bottles were sold globally last year.

In America alone, studies show that around 1,500 single-use water bottles are consumed every second – and only 20 per cent of these are recycled.

And the cost of buying more and more plastic bottles adds up – the pair say that bottled water costs approximately 1,400 times more than tap water.

‘We’ve always been passionate about the environment,’ said Leeworthy.

COULD THE END OF THE PLASTIC WATER BOTTLE BE NIGH?

Earlier this year a trio of designers created an alternative to the plastic water bottle – a container made from an edible algae balloon.

Called Ooho, the spheres can be produced in different sizes, hygienically protect the liquid inside, and cost just 2 cents (less than a penny) each.

The design was crowned one of 12 winners of the second annual Lexus Design Award and is due to go on sale in Boston later this year.
