Australian EcoDesigned Reusable Water Bottle Has Built-in Filter

The Victorian company Half a Teaspoon is in the process of commercialising a new upmarket reusable drink bottle. The bottle called the 321, and designed by Charlwood Design, integrates a plunger-style carbon filter. The product has received financial support from Design Victoria to help it through the design phase.

The product name 321 refers to the ratio of three litres water used to process one litre of bottled water. The company name Half a Teaspoon refers to the ratio of fresh potable water available on the planet. (If the earth's total water supply is equal to one litre, only half a teaspoon is accessible drinking quality water.)
