IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 11, 2013 — By creating a reusable water bottle that filters up to 99% of contaminants from municipally supplied tap water, the team behind Evo Eau are poised to change the way that the world looks at water quality.
Engineered for everyday use, the Evo Eau bottle does more than many it’s mainstream competitors in terms of filtering out contaminants and harmful carcinogens like Chromium 6 in tap water. Many filtering water bottles only conform to NSF42 standards, which only asks for filters to remove 50% of chlorine from water. Some do not even conform to those miniscule standards and bottled water companies are held to even fewer. A recent study by the NRDC stated that there was no guarantee that bottled water is any cleaner than tap water and estimates that up to 25% of bottled water may just merely be “tap water in a bottle”.
Evo Eau (“Evo” representing evolution and change; “Eau” is French for water) came to life after founder, Scott Moore discovered during a bicycling trip (through the San Joaquin Valley of California) that there was a major problem with the safety of our tap water: “Residents were told to boil their tap water due to Chromium 6 contamination; that isn’t enough,” said Scott.
Scott started Evo Eau to create tools that turn contaminated water into safe drinkable water for everyone around the world: “I saw a need for a stylish and functional filtering water bottle that anyone can use. This bottle easily meets day-to-day hydration needs and allows the user access to any municipal water source: a sink, faucet, spigot, or fountain transforming it into great tasting, clean water instantly while you drink.”
Evo Eau is currently looking to raise funds for their initial product run via IndieGoGo. Anyone may pre-order limited edition bottles, multiple bottles and filter drop sponsorships starting as low as $25.
