The new line of reusable personal water bottles, based on the popular CamelBak Better Bottleâ„¢, is now available with ten different graphic treatments, ready to match your customer's personal style with everything from argyle/animal prints to skull and crossbones. Bottles will be available to ship June 15-August 1, 2008 in time for Back To School merchandising. Orders are being taken through March 1.
Carrying your own bottle has become a statement in itself. Customers of all ages want to stay hydrated, but they know that Americans go through 50 billion throwaway water bottles a year and they don't want to be part of that waste stream. Carrying their own bottle shows they're ahead of the curve and CamelBak provides a nicely designed alternative to the traditional offerings.
The Better Bottle has a flip-up Big Biteâ„¢ Valve that enables spill-free sipping as an antidote to taking off a wide screw top and gulping. Its spillproof design makes it great for the car, gym, classroom, or next to a keyboard. The Better Bottle has a smooth, ergonomic shape and a handy grab handle that lets you clip it to the outside of a pack.
Need more? Well, you've probably been reading about consumer concern over chemical compounds, especially bisphenol-A (BPA) and phthalates. The Camelbak Better Bottle is made from a brand new material called TritanÂ®, that contains none of these compounds, so your customers (and your sales staff) can be confident as well as hydrated.
â€œThe timing is right for the Graphic Bottle line,â€ says Layne Rigney, CamelBak's VP of Global Sales. â€œOur Bottle business is growing fast and this line is designed to support our retail partners by appealing to a younger customer. The line will be supported by a heavy online publicity campaign that will concentrate on environmental, youth and parenting sites. We're finding that the BPA and phthalate-free issue is important to customers of all ages.â€
