Bottled water is just plain mad. First there‘s the production. It takes about a quarter of litre of oil and seven litres of water to produce and transport one litre of bottled water. Then there’s the disposal. Globally, we throw away 150 billion water bottles every year. Line them up (nose to tail) and they’d stretch to the moon and back…50 times! Very few are recycled. Most bottles end up in landfills taking centuries to decay.
We believe that drinking water shouldn’t hurt the planet. That means more taps, more fountains and less bottled water. Aquatina makes drinking tap water easier. A full Aquatina holds 500ml of water. Empty it collapses to 1/3 of it’s original size to fit snugly in a pocket or handbag. So, like your keys or a mobile phone, it’s easy to always have with it you.
Aquatina is…environmentally-friendly Aquatina uses traditional, environmentally-sustainable methods of water transportation – they are called pipes! Refill your Aquatina just three times and it’s carbon neutral compared to buying bottles.
Convenient Aquatina is handier than bottled water. You can always have it in your pocket or handbag. Feeling thirsty? Simply type your location into Findafountain.org to find your nearest free water source.
Economical The average European spends over £100 per year on bottled water. Aquatina costs about £5 and then nothing to fill and re-fill.
Why We Love Them
Aquatina is smart. They don’t just provide an alterative to disposable water bottles; they figure out how to make the switch as easy as possible.
Their pocket bottle is dishwasher proof and has a wide neck for cleaning, making it easy to care for. Because it’s so small, it’s as easy to carry around as your keys or cell phone. And the bottle is PET- and BPA-free, so you can use it over and over without fear of contaminants.
As if that weren’t enough, Aquatina paired up with the not-for-profit organization Find-a-Fountain to make it even easier for people to quench their thirst without harming the planet. The companies offer an online map that identifies the closest spot to fill up on free water. So far, it’s mainly for London residents, but Aquatina has plans to expand as soon as they can. Let’s raise our reusable pocket bottles and toast to clean water and a clean planet for all!
