Waste of mineral water is a global issue and the design team wants to make an effort to change that. This design is a modular mineral water bottle, the body of which was designed into three parts. All parts are screwed together and each part can be used independently. The combined mineral water bottle has the same size and volume as the ordinary water bottle. It is convenient for consumers to enjoy various drinks with only one bottle and waste rate of mineral water can be greatly reduced by this ingenious design.
