The Atlas Bottle
Proving How The Little Things in Life do Add Up...
According to Greek mythology, Atlas is the God who holds the world on his shoulders, which is exactly what your Atlas bottle is designed to do as well. As you travel the world, whether you are flying half-way around the world to a foreign country or traveling to next town over for a soccer match, you can then pick up a small piece of the earth, whether that be a grain sand or dirt, a blade of grass or even just a small pebble, and put it into your bottle.
Imagine this, you and your friends have been dreaming of the day that you all travel to the golden beaches of Hawaii. Then, one day, you see that cheap flight, share it with your friends and you all say, "F*** it, let's go!" And, two weeks later, you made it. There you are with a cold beer in your hand with your best friends watching the sunset over the pacific. This is the moment we recommend you take your Atlas Bottle out of your kit, scoop up a few grains of sand to save that beach, that sunset, that moment forever in your bottle. These are the stories of your life. The Atlas Bottle is just a way to carry it as each pebble or grain of sand you collect is yet another page to your story.
And, as it is your story, we do believe that your first page should be where it all began- home. So, we suggest the first pebble you collect be from your backyard or hometown. That way no matter how far you travel, home will always be there with you.
Finally, as you continue to travel the world and add more pages to your story, you are slowly beginning to hold more and more of the world in your hand. And, ultimately, if you manage to travel every country and continent and collect a small piece from each, you have reached a height previously reserved only for the God Atlas as you too are now holding the whole world in your hand.
So, yes! We know that our Atlas Bottle is nothing more than just a 10 ml glass vial, but as a book with empty pages, it is up to you to decide what story it will hold.
