Thermos Saves the Day!
I am actually ashamed to admit this, I haven’t thought about or said the word thermos in years! Immediately saying the word takes me right back to the good ol’ days of elementary school when my mom would give me a thermos full of juice in my lunch box…not a bottle of water. And then when the juice was gone, I would fill it up with (gasp) water from the drinking fountain …you know that drinking fountain that is full of free water! When did that stop for everyone?
Thermoses are amazing and have been around for years but for some reason (massive amounts of advertising from the bottled water industry) they have been put on the back burner. Until now, Thermos has created a super practical iPhone App that will guide users to drinking fountains! How awesome is that? The FREE Oasis Places app will guide users to the closest drinking fountain and allow them to rank and post photos. It’s like Yelp for drinking fountains. Just one more way to further remove bottled water from everyday life. I love that this app tackles two major points – bringing your own multi-use bottle and bringing back the tap.
Rick Dias, President at Thermos said “Thermos has been making products that help people lead healthier lifestyles for over a century….we want to make it easier than ever to enjoy a refreshing and healthy drink of cold water.” Awesome job!
