Item: GoPure Pod
Mission: The GoPure Pod is changing the way the world drinks water by continually purifying and enhancing your tap water on the go. Just drop this wine cork-sized pod into any water vessel — pitcher, bottle, glass, camelback, coffee maker and more — for clean, healthy and great-tasting water everywhere you go. You’ll not only have peace of mind that the water you’re drinking is safe, but you’re also helping save the environment by reducing the use of plastic water bottles. Each pod lasts up to 6 months, treats up to 264 gallons of water and replaces 2,000 plastic water bottles. That’s 2,000 single-use pieces of plastic that one person can keep out of our environment. It’s a simple, easy and affordable way to reduce your plastic footprint.
Description: The GoPure Pod is made from an all-natural ceramic, reusable for up to six months, and fully recyclable once it’s reached its lifespan. One pod also replaces 2,000 single-use plastic bottles, encouraging the use of eco-friendly alternatives, such as a reusable water bottle.
The pod filters lead, E.Coli, chromium, among many other impurities through the patented technology PuriBloc™. Each pod lasts up to 6 months, treats up to 264 gallons of water and replaces 2,000 plastic water bottles. That’s 2,000 single-use pieces of plastic that one person can keep out of our environment. It’s a simple, easy and affordable way to reduce your plastic footprint.
Country of Origin: Ireland
Materials: BPA-free plastic encasing and advanced, highly porous ceramic inside made from food grade minerals of biogenic origin. The Pod’s product design is the culmination of several years of research involving specialist areas within chemistry, microbiology, engineering and polymer sciences. The result is a highly efficient purification device effective in hot or cold conditions. The shell is made from the same material used in dentistry and is recyclable. GoPure products are continuously evolving to become the most valuable resource for purifying tap water. The outside shell is made of plastic to enhance its functionality. Stainless steel cannot be used since it will impede the ionization effect of the GoPure Pod, which is essential to removing impurities. GoPure is currently evaluating other non-plastic materials for its next generation product line.
Americans are said to use 2.5 million plastic bottles every year. Although the Pod does currently have a plastic component, it still keeps way more plastic out of our environment than it puts in (1 Pod replaces 2,000 plastic water bottles).
Care Instructions: For optimal performance, the GoPure product should be rinsed periodically to remove any accumulated impurities. If necessary, the pod can be cleaned gently under running water with a soft bristle toothbrush. GoPure is non-hazardous and can be disposed of in accordance with local recycling requirements.
