You may be surprised to know that most people in the industrialized world don't have access to high-quality drinking water. For those affected, the simple solution is to buy plastic bottles of fresh, filtered water, but unfortunately these innocuous bottles come with a price you won't pay at the checkout. Every year, over 22 billion single-use water bottles end up in a landfill. This is a global environmental problem, and fortunately, designers Black + Blum have come up with a stylish and simple solution.
With a squeeze and a snap, 6 months of great tasting tap water is available at your fingertips. By providing a locking compartment for a tube of binchotan active charcoal in their cork-topped BPA-free bottle, designers Dan Black and Martin Blum have modernized this natural filter used by the Japanese since the 17th century. Binchotan reduces chlorine, mineralizes water, and balances the pH so no additional filtration is necessary for pure, refreshing tap water. Maintaining the charcoal is easy, just remove it from the bottle after three months and boil it for ten minutes. Once you've recharged it, your tube is ready to transform your tap water for another three months. Eau Good water bottle made in China; charcoal made in Taiwan.
