Water: It’s Kinda Essential
Clean water is essential when you’re exploring far from home. Fortunately, Seattle-based Grayl has created a 16oz water filtration cup that gives you peace of mind and a drink in one light-weight package.
Designed similar to a French Press, this revolutionary cup is made up of two vessels – press one cup into the other and out comes safe, portable drinking water, 99.9 percent free of viruses, bacteria, arsenic, lead, pesticides and protozoa. There’s no batteries, no UV lights, and you don’t have to suck or pump, just press for approximately 20 seconds and drink. There’s also no leakage, making Grayl an essential when you’re hitting the hiking trails or heading further abroad. The creation of entrepreneur Nancie Weston, Grayl uses advanced G3+ filtration technology and refillable cartridges, each good for up to 300 filtered portions, ensuring whatever resides in the local aqua doesn’t end up residing in you.
