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.

Background: BU is a small team based in London whose shared passion for sustainable design has led to the creation of a minimal and unique water filter. Last year they turned their idea to reality after a successful Kickstarter campaign
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.
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.
