5. Avocado Flask

It reduces the space between the seed and the water and, thanks to the narrowing, the water surface exposed to the air is minimal, reducing the risk of dust and small parasites infiltrating and the consequent development of mould, bacteria or harmful organisms but also promoting preservation and reduced evaporation of the water, allowing a minimum quantity to be used for topping up.
