Design, Thinking / Market News By Editorial Staff,

Every BU Water bottle you buy will provide access to clean water to someone in need.

“The premium designed reusable water bottle that keeps you hydrated wherever you go, without damaging our planet”

There are more than 780 million people without access to clean water. BU‘s goal is helping to change this global crisis by partnering up with charity: water.

More people die each year from water related diseases than all forms of violence including wars. 43% of these deaths are children under the age of 5.

Sleek Design

The BU Water bottle has a unique design that is sure to grab people’s attention; from its elegant, glass-like appearance to its 100% natural charcoal filter which removes chemicals from tap water.

Sustainable Alternative

Over 50 billion disposable plastic water bottles are thrown away around the world every year.

BU Water aims to bring you an innovative alternative to single­ use bottles by encouraging people to conserve resources with a reusable bottle that filters water on the go.

Inspired by Nature

Using a traditional Japanese method the activated charcoal filter is made by simply cutting a piece of bamboo to size and placing it in a kiln.

The designers at BU have also made the lid from bamboo, the fastest growing plant on the planet, in order to limit the use of plastic and all unnecessary features.

The bottle has a 700ml capacity, made from BPA and BPS Free Tritan.

Tritan is a great alternative to glass ensuring it’s shatter resistant, lightweight and dishwasher safe. You can pre-order BU Water here.
