Tell us about your business.California-based Vapur, Inc. started in 2009 as a big idea with a simple solution. With unwelcome waste creeping into the social conscious and light shed on the ugly aftereffects of plastic, avid outdoorsmen, David Czerwinski, Brent Reinke and Jason Carignan set out to find an answer. This team, led by a commitment to design, innovation and eco-responsibility, was on a mission to make hydration incomparably portable and disposable bottles obsolete. September of that founding year, Vapur launched its game changing product: the Vapur Anti-Bottle. The Anti-Bottle is a reusable water bottle designed to stand when full and can be rolled, folded or flattened when empty, making it easy to use and carry on any adventure. Unlike bulky, rigid bottles, the portable Anti-Bottle can be easily tucked away, conveniently fitting into pockets, purses and packs.
