We’re all into being eco-friendly around here, and using reusable water bottles is a great way to save our planet. With their increased popularity, now you can find water bottles in a variety of designs and materials, all in an effort to cater to all demographics and pay grades of the conscious consumer. Recently, there’s yet another prefix that one manufacturer is capitalizing on – fear. But, some people might be wary of the quality of the water they’re drinking.
Water tragedies, like those that surfaced in Flint, Michigan, have many questioning the quality of drinking water in their homes, neighborhoods, schools and workplaces. Consequently, one company is positioned to make a fortune off of this fear.
The Ecomo Water Bottle, is technologically equipped to provide a digital readout of water quality and, subsequent filtering actions. The design raised more than $275,000 on Kicksarter, far surpassing its original funding goal of a mere $50,000.
How to use the device is simple. Consumers only need to fill the bottle with water, shake it, and read the digital light display, which reports either “bad,” “moderate” or “great.”
The bottle’s filtering system can remove contaminants, such as chlorine, pharmaceutical drugs, bacteria and more, according to Snapmunk. As an added bonus, consumers can remove the bottom band from the bottle and wear it as a bracelet. The bracelet has Bluetooth connectivity, and through an app, reports to users how much water they’ve consumed and notifies them when they need to drink more.
