So just how disgusting are our water bottles?

Even the in the world’s most regulated countries, municipal tap water isn’t bacteria-free, and even when it’s been chlorinated and treated, the levels of bacteria present grow into alarming levels even at room temperature. Using a filter could make it worse, and water bottles are great at harbouring germs at alarming levels thanks to the added nutrients and bacteria from our backwash. Single use plastic bottles are a solution but it’s terrible for the environment and it’s costly. It seems like a war we can’t win. That’s why we created Nuvoe.

Bacterial concentrations in tap water.

That’s okay, I use a filter.

Water bottles, the perfect incubator?

I’ll just drink bottled water.

Enter Nuvoe.
