Water To Go Bottle 50clWhat impact does drinking bottled water have on the environment?

  • Unless it has been incinerated, every piece of plastic ever made still exists; Reason? Plastic takes over 500 years to degrade!
  • Over 70 billion (seventy thousand million) single use plastic water bottles are consumed annually in the US and Europe alone; National Geographic estimate that a maximum of 20% are recycled. That means that over 50 billion bottles go into landfill or end up in our oceans every year.
  • Fill up your bottle with oil to a fifth of its capacity to witness how much oil is used in manufacturing the bottle and shipping it to you!
  • For every 1 litre of bottled water in your local supermarket, 3 litres have been used to make and ship it to you.
  • Bottled water is commonly more expensive than petrol or diesel, at £1 or €1 per 50 cl bottle, compared to petrol and Diesel at £1.40 or €1.40 per litre!
  • By consuming bottled water you are contributing to killing over 1 million sea birds and 100,000 mammals annually, who die by ingesting or becoming trapped in plastic waste.
  • Get the taste and convenience of bottled water at a fraction of the costs; get water where you are certain of the quality by filtering it yourself; help reduce plastic waste and preserve natural resources by using a Water-To-Go bottle.


The top-line

Each Water-to-Go filter cartridge lasts for 200 litres, or 3 months. Filters are manufactured from a non woven media that is also called a charged layer membrane. Our filters were developed at the behest of NASA and are constructed utilizing nano technology. Nano alumina along with 33 % carbon and other filtration ingredients are utilized to bring about this amazing new patented process. The nano alumina emits a positive charge when wet and attracts the negative charged contaminants of protozoa, bacteria and virus. This revolutionary new process will make every drop of water more safe and refreshing. Finally a filter that really does what its supposed to do. Unlike carbon block filters that lose as much as 70 percent of their area to the adhesives that hold the block together our carbon has zero adhesives holding it in place. The pore sizes of carbon block based filters are too big to stop any protozoa, bacteria or virus. Yes they filter chlorine and some heavy metals. They basically improve the taste of water without properly filtering out any of the more serious contaminants that can get into water supplies from time to time.

The bottom-line

We have tested the filters and the list of materials that Water-to-Go will ‘catch’ is a long one. Water-to-Go filters reduce the volume of contaminants in water by over 99.9%. Simply put they work! Here is a selection of the contaminants we have tested for: Metals & Chemicals
  • Chlorine, Fluoride

  • Lead, Gold, Silver
  • Aluminium
  • Volatile Organic Compounds including Formaldehyde* * In certain areas of the world natural Arsenic occurs, WTG filters cannot filter Arsenic to 99.9%.
  • Norwalk, Hepatitis A, Tota Virus, Adenoviruses, Enteroviruses,Reoviruses
Bacteria Oocysts- Protazoa
  • Giardia lamblia
Parasites and waterborne pathogens This list is abridged but includes some of the most recognizable and common problems.

  • Echinococcosis Ascariasis
  • Coenorosis Schistosomiasis
  • Cryptosporidium Tryonosoma (Sleeping Sickness)
  • Threadworm Guinea Worm
  • Hookworm Roundworm
  • Pinworm Onchiocerca
  • Fasciola Hepatica/Liver fluke
Water-to-Go filters are intended to remove contamination from water. Filters will become inefficient if used with additives such as isotonic powders, cordials, juices etc. Not recommended to filter urine for drinking purposes. Don’t forget, the majority of cross infection is caused by poor personal hygiene. Wash your hands.
