90, 000 plastic bottles are thrown away every minute, but you can be part of the solution by using a reusable container. This is what motivated Niki Singlaub to create the Hydaway collapsible bottle. This container can store up to 600 ml (21oz) in its food-grade silicone, but collapses to just over 3.2 cm (1.25in) in height when not in use.

Singlaub’s Hydaway will appeal to travelers as well. While on a business trip, Singlaub realized the convenience of being able to finish your bottle before going through security, collapse it, and put it in your pocket.

Hydaway began as an idea in June of 2012, and after its development, the Kickstarter was launched in April, 2015.
