$1.1 million and counting. That\u2019s what the Quartz self-purifying water bottle has raised on Kickstarter, and its crowdfunding campaign isn\u2019t even over yet. With several days remaining, it\u2019s not unusual to see a massive push from last-minute backers. Whatever amount is raised, it\u2019s impressive when you consider the funding goal was a humble $30,000.\r\n\r\nSo what makes Quartz so special? Well, it\u2019s a reusable, rechargeable, insulated water bottle that cleans itself and the water you put inside it. Plus it\u2019s great for the environment \u2013 no wasted plastics.\r\nQUARTZ utilises a digital purification process and UV light to purify and clean when you press the button on the lid. This process eradicates up to 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, plus eliminates odours. Beyond purifying, Quartz is double insulated for keeping water cold for 24 hours or hot for 12.\r\n\r\n\r\nWill & Bear's Upcycled Hats are Stylish, Great for the Environment Too\r\nThen there are the environmental benefits. Every minute, more than a million bottles are being added to landfills around the world. That\u2019s over 480 billion annually. Think of the difference a reusable bottle in every hand could make.\r\n\r\nThere\u2019s still time for you to secure a Quartz bottle via Kickstarter for 20% off the planned retail price. If you missed out fear not, the bottle is expected to go on sale to the general public early 2018. Quartz is available in 5 different colours.\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many? You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
