$1.1 million and counting. That’s what the Quartz self-purifying water bottle has raised on Kickstarter, and its crowdfunding campaign isn’t even over yet. With several days remaining, it’s not unusual to see a massive push from last-minute backers. Whatever amount is raised, it’s impressive when you consider the funding goal was a humble $30,000.
So what makes Quartz so special? Well, it’s a reusable, rechargeable, insulated water bottle that cleans itself and the water you put inside it. Plus it’s great for the environment – no wasted plastics.
QUARTZ 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.
Then there are the environmental benefits. Every minute, more than a million bottles are being added to landfills around the world. That’s over 480 billion annually. Think of the difference a reusable bottle in every hand could make.
There’s 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.
