The other feature that really sold us on the thinksport bottle? It’s light. We’re not talking feather-light – this is after all, a metal bottle. But it’s definitely surprisingly light when you pick it up and easy enough to carry with you in your bag.
Now, we know it’s not easy to make a product that is high quality, beautiful, easy to use and sustainable but we do have to point out a few things that we are hoping thinksport incorporates into their design process. First off, in terms of packaging, we noticed that the bottle itself comes in a plastic bag within a cardboard box. It’s very probably that the outer box is to protect the bottle – since it is very glossy and it would be a shame to mar – but in the future, if there was a way to sell the bottle without the excess packaging, that would elevate its green factor even more.
The other thing to note is that thinksport bottles do not appear to be made from recycled metal (we are following up to find out). It’s important to point out that materials aren’t everything – the mere fact that this is a reusable bottle makes it eco-friendly in its own right – but if future iterations of thinksport bottles could be made of partially reclaimed metal or even if they had a “send it back for recycling” program, that would also make them all the more appealing to the savvy green consumer.
