A fourteen-year-old girl, Dia Sheth from Mumbai, India, has designed a unique hydrating water bottle for pets. Slurrp-y is a portable water bottle for your pooch and kitten to quench their thirst and keep their bellies full even while traveling or when out on a walk.
The bottle is completely leakproof and has a carbon filter to remove odors and impurities. The bottle also contains a storage space for food which adds to its multifunctionality. Slurrp-y comes equipped with a lock that makes it different from other bottles.
The whole idea to launch the product initially came to her mind in 2019 while taking her puppy out for a walk. Dia noticed that her pooch felt tired, thirsty and hungry and that’s where the idea hit her. Slurrp-y comes with a wide mouth cup which makes it easy for pets to drink water.
A student of DY Patil International School, Mumbai, Dia also attends the Young Entrepreneurship Academy (YEA) that pushes students to think creatively and make the most of their ideas.
The Slurrp-y bottle comes in two variations – Slurrp-y, which provides only water, while the more modified Slurrp-y Plus that also has a compartment for food. Slurrp-y is currently priced at Rs 849 (roughly $11) and Slurrp-y Plus comes for Rs 899 ($12). The Slurrp-y bottle can hold 400ml of water while the latter Plus variant can hold 150ml of water and 150ml of food.
Battling all odds, from finding a manufacturer to getting a patent registered, it has been a heck of a journey for the fourteen-year-old from Mumbai. Dia Sheth has sold almost 400 bottles so far and her quest to sell more continues. If you are looking to buy Slurrp-y, visit Dia’s Instagram page to place your order now.
