Here are 3 interesting lifestyle products that could make a small difference in our daily lives:
1. bapa Collapsible Water Bottle
bapa designs makes multi-purpose soft pocket bottles that not only can store fluids, but also keep it warm at the same time.
The bottles are soft, which makes it convenient for users to pack-and-store, saving bag space.
2. Archon Mask
Archon Mask's idea is to protect people from pollution while allowing them to eat, drink, and talk clearly with style without the need to cover their mouths.
The product is also eco-friendly and can be reused after cleaning.
