999Bottle whips out statistics about your green impact

Radhicka S Saxena:

An eco friendly water bottle that actually tells you how many plastic bottles you saved is truly an ingenious creation. Not only does this exploit inform you about the good turn you are doing, but it also goads you to take the same exemplary step in the future. The innovative concept will make all ecosavvy people more aware about their actions prodding them further to stick to their ethical life choices. The superb idea to quantify the number of plastic bottles one is saving is the brainchild of Fernd Van Engelen, an industrial designer from Artefact.

A Water Bottle That Tracks Its Own Eco Impact

This merchandise, actually known as 999Bottle, is a simple reusable bottle that retails for $29. The bottle looks quite dapper as it has a metallic top half and a rubber base. Its wide mouth supports cleaning while its cap has a lanyard. Moreover, the eco friendly propaganda it supports is truly endearing. Every time you refill this bottle, you just have to move the dial forward by one notch, and the unique mechanism attached to the bottle will churn out amazing facts for you.

Its rubberized base bears a three digit dial that lets you know how many plastic bottles you saved by using this green tagged water container instead. An app attached to this piece actually converts all your environment conscious actions into useful and easy to understand statistics. Quite savvy, what say? The message is conveyed using catchy graphics and fun messages. Take a look at this one for instance – “You’ve saved 1,063 bottles! That’s equivalent to the height of the Eiffel Tower. Oui, oui!”
