LOLIWARE EDIBLE BIOPLASTICS commented on BubbleCap - more bubbles, less waste!

@KateRushton Thanks for thinking of us!

BubbleCap - more bubbles, less waste! This is such an exciting product! Even in-home carbonators still take up a huge amount of resources in manufacture and maintenance, so kudos for coming up with such an elegant solution. For the purposes of the competition, I'm curious if you can come up with a figure for how many bottles this will replace over the lifetime of the product, if it's used correctly. I understand that the plastic water bottle is a low barrier to entry, but I think that offering a more "permanent" solution with Bubble Cap would be a wise move. Could you consider what the "full kit" of Bubble Cap with cartridge, cap, and bottle would look like? Replacing PET bottles is a great way to reduce waste, but eliminating their use altogether would be most ideal!
By the way, since you're launching in Kickstarter US--when I lived in Europe, I know sparkling water was everywhere, but here it's only just beginning to catch on. It's commonly said that Americans don't like to drink still water because it's "boring", so I'd play on that in your upcoming campaign a bit!
