Betty commented on Replacing Plastic Bottles

Thanks Lauren Ito for your response I appreciate.
My idea is at ideation stage and building on it by putting down the research have done together which includes information about the dispensers,location,costs involved and availability of hydro flask bottles.I am also getting people feedback on what they think about it.

My target community is as follows:
1). Students in schools, because they spend most of their time in school so the probability of buying bottled water or juice is very high.

2). People going to the beaches ,Most people go around beaches for picnic and outings.Often times due to swimming dehydration and desire to eat something is very high so grabbing a plastic bottled water or a small snack wrapped in polythene almost comes naturally.

3). Professionals-Most people working spend 8 hours or more away from their homes if the organization do not provide water for them the only option they have is to buy the plastic bottled water to quench the thirst considering the hours they spend away from home.

4). Around the hospitals.Most people visiting the hospital do not have a planned time they intent to stay there because it depends on how many patients are waiting to be attended.The only option they have is to grab a bottle of water or juice from the hospital canteen as they wait.

5). Market place-Most markets do not have an arranged provision of meals and drinks so people working and visiting the markets can only buy a plastic bottled water for themselves as they buy or sell.
