Meet the foldable and reusable Origami Bottle
The plastic origami bottle invented by Petar Zaharinov at DiFOLD proposes a compact and reusable packaging solution.
This bottle has been designed to replace those made of single-use plastic. The incredible Origami Bottle created by DiFOLD tech can be supported for launch through indiegogo.com.
Its format allows to compress up to 80% of its volume and when unfolded it remains stable. In addition, with the aim of respecting the environment, Origami Bottle is made of TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) polymer free of odors and BPA. For each bottle refill, we save 3.5 ounces, or 100 grams of CO2 emissions.
Very resistant, the company still studies its durability in years before preparing mass production batches for the market. Available in different colors, pink, blue and green, the Origami Bottle is easy to wash and even dishwasher safe. Its stainless steel lid is leak-proof and contains a ring to hang the bottle wherever you want.
The Origami Bottle Concept
The concept of Origami Bottle emerged when Zaharinov was exploring transformable structures in 2016. His search in the accordion structures led to the idea that the geometrical principle of these unfolded structures has never been considered.
Radina Popova, co-founder of DiFold, developed the flat-fold design during the last two years. Popova confirms that it folds like an origami, fits in a pocket and saves 100 grams of carbon dioxide emissions every time we fill it.
“With the increased consumption caused by the COVID-19, this [reusable folding container] has never been more important.”
The bottle premiered successfully on June 16 at the Kickstarter venture platform for $30 and can be pre-ordered through Indiegogo. Popova said to PlasticsToday they had “an incredible launch of our fundraising campaign. It was fully funded in just four hours and now we are funded at 38%.”
