About Us

Hydrapak creates unique hydration solutions for performance-driven people and brands.  For nearly two decades, we’ve been pushing the boundaries of hydration to create rugged, safe, and more reliable products designed to go with you anywhere.


  • Helping people avoid toxic chemicals by creating drinkware cleaning products that contain exclusively natural ingredients.
  • Reducing landfill waste by producing packaging that maximizes recycled, recyclable, and biodegradable materials.
  • Reducing bottled water waste by offering a convenient cleaning method for reusable drinking containers.
  • Helping solve water sanitation issues in developing countries through hygiene education and the donation of Bottle Bright.
  • Promoting domestic jobs and manufacturing by producing products that are made in the USA.


The Bottle Bright journey began appropriately  – at a trailhead. Justin and Seth, the creators of Bottle Bright, were fresh off a mountain bike ride that was endured with noticeably less than fresh tasting water.  They were fed up with the grime that plagued their hydration packs and water bottles, and the lack of suitable methods to clean them.  After years of choosing between stains and odors or toxic chemicals, Justin and Seth set out to create the safest and most effective product for maintaining hard-to-clean drinking containers.  After countless hours spent researching and testing, their unique all natural formula was born.

Recognizing that the problem of dirty water containers carries more serious risks to people in developing countries, our added purpose became to leverage our sales to give Bottle Bright to the people that need it most.



With your purchase, Hydrapak gives the same amount of Bottle Bright to people in vital need of clean water containers.

Lack of clean water and sanitation in developing countries is a serious problem.  Nearly 80% of illnesses in these areas are linked to poor water quality and sanitation.  These illnesses are often serious and life threatening; one out of every five deaths of children worldwide under the age of 5 are attributed to water related disease.

There are a number of great organizations working to create new sources of clean water.  However, there remains a missing link to keeping that water clean; the dirty containers used to transport and store drinking water.  Many of these jerry cans, jugs, and bottles are unhygienic and there is no available method for cleaning them.  Building a new well or water purification system becomes less beneficial when people carry and store clean water in contaminated containers.

We aim to help fill this missing piece of the puzzle with hygiene education and the donation of Bottle Bright.  Our unique product is safe to handle, easily transported, and ecologically suitable for discharge on the ground.  With your purchase, Hydrapak gives the same amount of Bottle Bright to people in vital need of clean water containers.

Buy clean, give clean – Clean in Kind.

A dream come true! Kristi P.

The Bottle Bright tablets are very convenient. Just fill your bottle or water bladder with warm water and plop in a tablet. Let it fizz for five minutes to dissolve. Then mix it up and let it soak for ten minutes. Then rinse. Your water vessel is now clean and odor-free. No chlorine smell or flavor.


These tablets work as advertised. I cleaned my water bottles, hydration bladder, travel mugs and coffee mugs that couldn’t go in the dishwasher. All were left sparkling and odor-free. This is a product I will be using in the future.

I’ve been known to drink out of some funky water bottles. I always figured that black film at the bottom was just more calories. Not anymore. Bottle Bright is so effective and easy to use all of my bottles sparkle.

It‘s a small tablet you drop in your bottle, hydration pack, or any water vessel for that matter, and in 10 minutes it’s clean as a whistle. Just rinse and go. That’s the magic of activated oxygen and organic surfactants. Indispensable.

Water is a necessity, no matter who you are or what you’re doing. But many of us don’t clean our containers until they contain a noticeable biohazard. For me, the difference between safe hydration and total intestinal failure is Bottle Bright by Clean Ethics.

Bottle Bright effervescent tablets are biodegradable, non-toxic and bubble away biohazards by breaking them down to inert natural substances. It’s like a 2000 Flushes for your water bottle or hydration pack.

We’ve all been there – you’re trying to clean your old, favorite water bottle, but you just can’t fit your hand all the way inside. There are tricks, sure, like wrapping an sponge around a fork to get to those hard-to-reach-places, but it can be a pain to remove. What to do? Get yourself or your loved one some Bottle Bright. According to the company, Clean Ethics, Bottle Bright is a safe, effective, and convenient product for cleaning difficult to wash containers.

Bottle Bright are tablets that dissolve in warm water. You simply put one into your bottle, fill it up, and loosely screw on the cap. Let it sit for a bit, shake it up, and viola, the inside of the bottle is just like the day you bought it. The tablets are made from ingredients that are non-toxic, biodegradable, and chlorine-free. It’s another good stocking stuffer for the outdoor recreation fan in your life.

Why use Bottle Bright? It’s made with non-toxic ingredients that are not harmful to the environment. Even the package is environmentally friendly. It cleans those hard-to-clean drinking vessels and coffee stains. Best of all, with every purchase of Bottle Bright, Clean Ethics gives the same amount as purchased, to people in developing nations who need clean water containers.

Does it work? We were a bit skeptical. Andrew’s water bottles have been filled with coffee and left under seats in his car for months and his Nalgene left in his backpack for days. Even after a good soap and water scrub, they were stained and smelly. Bottle Bright surpassed our expectations and cleaned every challenge we threw at it.

Any list of the most irritating things in life has to include trying to wash out your favorite water bottle when it starts to get stinky – and they all do, sooner or later.

My favorite trick has been to add a drop or two of dish-soap directly to the interior of the bottle and then fill it about half-full and shake. It’s a technique that works very well on cleaning them but less well when it comes to rinsing them. It can be – ahem – a bugger to get the soap residue out. And then there’s still the tops to contend with, and depending on the design, that’s a beast of a different stripe to complete your exasperation.

That’s where a product like Bottle Bright effervescent tablets can be a godsend. Bye-bye, soapy after taste! Nice knowing you.

Gumption Gear

Whether your battle is against that coffee stained travel mug, or a hydration reservoir that refuses to relinquish the taste of that sugary sweet sports drink, the cleaning process can be a drag. Bottle Bright effervescent tablets eliminate the hassle by cleaning in a quick, simple and effective manner with non-toxic, biodegradable, and chlorine-free ingredients.


Over the course of testing the product, our gear guru’s used Bottle Bright on every reusable bottle, coffee pot and reservoir in our gear closet. From stainless steel insulated, to glass and plastic, the Bottle Bright product not only cleaned the bottle(s), mugs and pots, but removed stains we assumed had become immutable fixtures on the vessel.

You love your reusuable bottle but the small opening makes it hard to clean, which is especially problematic after it’s been sitting in your car all day with remnants of your morning smoothie. Instead of hoping the dishwasher will thoroughly clean and disinfect your bottle, use Bottle Bright instead.

Bottle Bright’s unique formula cleans and removes stubborn stains and odors without the use of harsh chemicals. Made in the U.S.A., the tablets are non-toxic, biodegradable and chlorine-free. They are also packaged with recycled, recyclable and biodegradable materials.

I decided to put Bottle Bright to the test on two of my most used drinking vessels- one of my travel coffee mugs and my ice climbing thermos. My ice climbing thermos was in the worst shape, as I have been using it every day throughout the past five winters. As the thermos is not that easy to clean, the smell and stain of Good Earth Tea lingered no matter how many times I washed it.


After ten minutes of soaking, I was delightfully surprised that the Good Earth Tea smell was completely gone. The inside of the thermos and the plastic top were also devoid of years of tea stain.

Tim Miner: Trail Sherpa

I tested the Bottle Bright tablets with each of my 6 containers producing the same results each time. There were no legacy stains or odors from the heavy usage that each vessel had accumulated over the last few months. And even more impressive is that the tablets made cleaning threaded bottles, the backcountry flask, and the hydration bladders a breeze.


Bottle Bright works great for your everyday trail needs. It works very well on stains and that funky smell that reusable water bottles and hydration bladders seem to develop over time even with hand washing. It’s very affordable for occasional use and the impact that your purchase has on the lives of others around the world is a fantastic bonus.

I love when a product actually does what it says it will do!

Bottle Bright by Clean Ethics is a tablet form cleanser for your drinking vessels and beverage containers. With its simple use and clear instructions, I had a foaming cleansing solution in my favorite travel mug in no time.


The draw to this type of product is simply the need for a quality product that actually provides a safe liquid container to use. How many times have you thought, “I hope that green stuff in my hydration bladder is good?” or “man, that coffee mug is gross!” With Bottle Bright, you now have a solution.

Healthy Holistic Living

I was thrilled, so thrilled that I pulled down all my travel mugs and various water bottles (yes, about twenty plus of them), dropped in Bottle Bright and bam! clean bottles. Yup, this stuff works, and quite well I might add. Now I can rest easy that I am not only providing my family with clean healthy water but I am no longer contaminating them with my home grown Petri dish!


5 Stars. What’s not to love about this product it works great, it’s non-toxic and the product is made by a company with a heart.
