CHICAGO--()--Contigo, a leading producer of innovative travel mugs and water bottles, introduces the new Striker AUTOSPOUT™ Water Bottle, a back-to-school solution to combat the messiest beverage spills. Featuring the unique patent-pending AUTOSPOUT technology, Striker offers an easy-to-use, spill-proof drinking experience designed especially for kids.
“Through research, we have found that 81 percent of parents do not feel that their kids are drinking enough water during the school day, which can impact attention and productivity. Striker is the perfect size to be easily packed in school lunches and backpacks”
The Striker, ideal for children aged three and older, features an AUTOSPOUT lid which includes a flip-up drink spout. The lid has a kid-friendly push-to-drink button for easy one-handed drinking on the go. The Striker also has a specially designed spill-proof valve - the first AUTOSPOUT water bottle with this feature - which helps kids transition from sippy cups without the mess. And, when kids are done drinking, a spout shield helps protect the spout from dirt and debris.
“Through research, we have found that 81 percent of parents do not feel that their kids are drinking enough water during the school day, which can impact attention and productivity. Striker is the perfect size to be easily packed in school lunches and backpacks,” said Todd Starr, Vice President of Marketing and Product Development of Ignite USA, parent company of the Contigo brand. “With the innovative spill-proof technology, kids’ schoolwork and their parents’ cars are safe from potentially disastrous spills.”
