Sip brilliantly with LARQ’s self-cleaning water bottle
Reusable bottles are great – not only are they better for the environment than single-use plastic ones but if you carry one, you’re ten times more likely to drink more water than if you weren’t carrying one and are one thousand times more attractive (okay, we made those last two up but the point remains that reusable bottles are pretty darn great). In fact, the only real downside to reusable bottles is having to remember to actually clean it from time to time. If you’ve been known to be a bit lax on the old maintenance regime, say hello to LARQ.
LARQ is the world’s first self-cleaning water bottle and to be honest, anything that cleans itself is talking our language. The bottle features innovative (and patented) UV-C LED technology that purifies water and inner surfaces of the bottle by eliminating harmful sources through a photochemical reaction. At the touch of a button, the LARQ bottle eradicates up to 99-percent of nasty, odour-causing bacteria and viruses. In fact, the bottle intelligently activates every two hours in a self-cleaning mode, basking the water and the inner surface in purifying UV light to keep your water and bottle free of germs, which makes it the perfect travel companion!
As you might expect, this kind of ground-breaking technology doesn’t come cheap but then again, can you really put a price on your health? The original LARQ bottle comes in an array of pretty colours and is available in 17 and 25-ounce varieties for $95 and $118 respectively or the lighter single-walled Movement bottle features the same innovative light technology and starts at $78.
