Designer Water Bottle Hits it Out of the Park on Kickstarter, Reaching 300% of Fundraising Goal in Just Two Weeks
(San Diego, CA – September 25, 2012) Clean Bottle, the company that revolutionized the water bottle with a screw off bottom for easy cleaning, announces the launch of the SQUARE. The SQUARE has quickly gained popularity as the hottest new designer water bottle on the crowd funding website, Kickstarter, where Clean Bottle first unveiled the new stainless steel water bottle, netting over $20,000 in donations in the first 2 days and reaching 300% of their funding
goal in two weeks.
The SQUARE is the product of a 3-year design collaboration between Clean Bottle founder David Mayer and a team of former Apple product engineers and Frog designers. Sleek in design, the SQUARE is designed from 16 different parts and requires 65 separate steps to manufacture. Loaded with one-of-a-kind details, Clean Bottle did not cut any costs (nor corners!) to create the best look and feel possible.
Featuring Clean Bottle’s patent pending Double Lid System™ with Quick Click™ quarter turn locking technology, the SQUARE is incredibly easy to clean and guaranteed not to leak. Its bold, square profile with wide ergonomic handle fits in a vehicle cup holder and allows you to take the SQUARE virtually anywhere comfortably, without having to worry about it rolling away. Water tastes perfect out of the Fresh Taste™ plastic lip. Most important, the iconic SQUARE is guaranteed for life.
Offered in multiple color options, the SQUARE will be available for purchase on Clean Bottle’s website starting mid October. Pre orders are available now until October 11th, 2012 through the Kickstarter donation website where laser etched custom engraving is offered exclusively for pre orders. Watch the SQUARE in action in the video that inspired Kickstarter visitors to donate 300% of the initial funding goal. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2065462213/the-square

About Clean Bottle
After constantly struggling to clean out the gunk and mold from the bottom of his water bottle, David Mayer, an Ironman triathlete and Stanford graduate from Silicon Valley, had the idea for Clean Bottle. In 2010, Mayer designed a water bottle with a screw-off bottom for easy cleaning and debuted “Bottle Boy”, donning a giant water bottle costume to chase riders in the Tour de France. Throughout those two weeks of chasing the best cyclists in the world to compete for TV air-time and fan attention, Clean Bottle sold over $70,000 in bottles. Today, Clean Bottle can now be found in over 4,000 retail stores and major distributors throughout the US and Europe including REI, Performance Bicycle, Dicks, 24 Hour Fitness, Sports Chalet, GNC and local bike shops nationwide.
On January 20th Clean Bottle was featured on ABC’s Shark Tank, where Mayer was offered a $60,000 investment from billionaire Mark Cuban to help expand the Clean Bottle line. Just this past Monday, September 23rd, Clean Bottle and Mayer had a cameo on the Emmy Award Show as the show re-aired a clip of the Shark Tank episode.
