“I guess most people are attracted by the design of the Dopper water bottle, besides the fact that it is BPA-free. The 2-part lid is innovative and allows the lid to be used as a cup, which can be very useful when you don’t wish to use disposable cups at events.
Also like Dopper’s mission of supporting water projects in developing countries.”
