The idea for Clean Bottle came as many of the best ideas do, on a bike ride. Earlier that day we’d gone to fill up a bottle only to find what looked like a science experiment gone wrong. Mold had grown all over the bottom, creating a stinky, funky mess. The bottle had to be recycled because it couldn’t even be cleaned out. That’s when the thought occurred: why not have a bottle that unscrews at the top AND the bottom? That way, it could easily be cleaned out if it got funky, and it would dry out quickly so it wouldn’t get stinky in the first place.

4 factories, 54 prototypes, 2 patent applications and 3 years later we present to you the Clean Bottle. It took a long time to get it right, but we think you’ll agree that it was worth it.

For us, Clean Bottle isn’t just a career, it’s a cause. We donate 10% of profits to eco and cycling friendly charities you can vote for here.

Send us photos you sporting the Clean Bottle and we’ll put ‘em up on the website and every month we’ll send a 4-pack of Clean Bottles to the most original submission. You can reach us at Thanks and Ride Clean!
