An eco-friendly self charging water bottle that purifies contaminants using ultraviolet technology. The Canadian company is ready to manufacture the product and has launched a Kickstarter to raise the necessary funds.
Every Neatjug water bottle is compliant with class A NSF standards and can purify up to 20,000 liters of contaminated water. Turning the handle for 180 seconds will charge up purification device for discharging UVC light, which lasts around 90 seconds. Each of these cycles can purify a maximum of 750 millimeters of water, which is about the size of a bottle of wine.
“Every detail of Neat Jug has been intricately designed with efficiency in mind,” says Neat Jug founder David Lee. “We wanted to offer a better way for adventurers to purify water while out in nature – without having to locate a power source or lug around unnecessary equipment.”
Neat Jug will work towards collaboration with Aid for Africa and ARDSO charity organizations for distribution of their new product to the more dehydrated parts of the world.
“We believe that clean drinking water should be a right to all, not a privilege,” Lee states. “Neat Jug will help make a difference by providing people with easier access to safe water – while also reducing each enthusiast’s carbon footprint. It’s an eco-friendly alternative to packing countless bottles of water, all of which aren’t biodegradable, and can leave you without water if you hike too far and didn’t pack enough to last. We want to eliminate that stress while making a positive impact on the environment.”
Water purification has been covering a lot of ground recently. A little while ago a new system for extracting pure drinking water out of thin air using clean energy was revealed.
