Whether you’re cruising the Arctic on an expedition ship or exploring the forests on foot, it’s always important to have clean water at hand, and that’s where Grayl comes in.
Safe drinking water is essential when you’re exploring far from home. We’ve all become accustomed to taking water with us – from the office to that next vacation – and many of us use reusable bottles to help limit plastic. However, when you’re far from civilization, water quality can vary. Fortunately, Seattle-based Grayl has created a 16oz water filtration cup that gives you peace of mind and clean water in one light-weight package.
Designed similar to a French Press, this revolutionary cup is made up of two vessels – simply fill with water from the tap, the stream, or the river, press one cup into the other, and hey presto, out comes safe, portable drinking water, 99.9 percent free of viruses, bacteria, arsenic, lead, pesticides, and protozoa. There are no batteries, no UV lights, and you don’t have to suck or pump, just press for approximately 20 seconds and enjoy a well-earned 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 – which comes in four eye-catching colors – 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.
