Rashid's bobble, a reusable 100-percent recycled BPA- and phthalate-free plastic bottle with a colorful, changeable carbon filter, has been recognized with numerous design awards, including a 2010 Good Design Award, a 2011 Red Dot Award in the product design category, and a 2011 Edison Award in the consumer packaged goods category. The bottle is guaranteed to provide 40 gallons of impurity-free water, the equivalent of 300 single-serve bottles of water. Move Collective, LLC, the creators of bobble, enlisted world-renowned industrial designer Rashid to fashion bobble's beautiful iconic shape.
