A couple of other features that you may enjoy. Your Cupanion is lightweight, and it's odor and taste resistant so there are no surprise smells or flavors.
Two flat sides allow the bottle to easily stack in your fridge or cooler.
Our unique cap design will keep your carbonated beverages bubbly.
Just kidding. You can't. Even if you hit it with a baseball bat...
Scan the Fill it forward tag (free with bottle) to give clean water and track your eco footprint.
Finally there is an app as generous as you are.
Simply stick the Fill it Forward tag to your Cupanion and scan when you refill to unlock a bunch of cool features, including:
Each time you refill your Cupanion you help turn the tap on for someone else.
Since 2012, we've partnered with charitable giving partners like WaterAid to fund projects around the world. From building a water tap in Mozambique to setting up a school health club in Nepal we've created hundreds of projects for our community to help fund.
Together with your help we can provide clean water for people around the world through the simple act of reuse.
Here's the deal, bottled water costs as much as 2000x more than your tap water. It's true, and the fact is that the average American is spending $100 a year on single use plastic water bottles. That means the average family of 4 spent over $400 last year. Why not treat your family with a Cupanion 4-pack and go buy something nice with the other $350?
The average case of 24 water bottles weighs nearly 30 lbs.
That's 30 lbs that you have to lift into your grocery cart, put onto the conveyor belt at a grocery store, put back in your cart, lift into the trunk of your car, and then carry into your home or office.
Oh and by the way...then you have to throw these bottles away and carry the empties to your curb each week.
When you have a Cupanion you simply walk to your tap or grab your filtered water, put your bottle under it, and pour it in.
Whoa, I think we may be on to something here.
Risks and challenges
We’re a small team with big goals. Since 2012, we have launched over a dozen products that are available at retailers, campuses, offices, and events around North America. Our latest product is our biggest challenge yet as we are manufacturing in the USA and at a price point that will truly make Cupanion accessible to all.
Although we’ve been working around the clock for the last year to ensure that everything is perfect…we can't plan for everything that could go wrong. That said, we are fully committed to delivering a product that we’re proud to use and share with our team, friends, family, and the Kickstarter community.
Here's where we're at:
- We have produced 200 pre-production samples that are currently being tested and improved.
- The Beta version of the Fill it Forward app launched in May. It is available for iOS and Android and performing really well. We still have some minor improvements…but we’re excited to share the experience with you.
- We are in constant contact with our manufacturing partners to ensure that your rewards will deliver on time.
