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. 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. Using traditional Japanese methods, 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. + BU Water on Kickstarter
