Sustainable BU Water bottle


This simple glass water bottle has a charcoal filter, which is the sole filtration component.  The BU Water bottle is currently being crowdfunded and has been designed in response to the “50 billion plastic bottles which are thrown away every year,” its designers say.

The charcoal filter is made by cutting a piece of bamboo to size and placing it in a kiln. The lid has also been made from bamboo, chosen for its fast growing sustainable properties.
