In the water industry the big bottled water companies have given people the perspective that tap water isn’t as good as bottled water as it contains bad chemicals that need to be filtered out to make it safer to drink. Tests have proven that more often than not the taste of tap water beats bottled water and the standard PET material used in everyday bottles flakes over time which reduces the quality of the water further. This combined with bottled water costing over 1000x more than tap water begs the question, why do we not drink tap water?
Cup and Carry helps people value the quality of their tap water by giving them a way to enjoy it both at home and on the go. It consists of a cup for drinking while at home as well as a ‘carry’ which can be placed on top of the cup to create a bottle for drinking while on the go. Both parts are made from borosilicate glass.
When the ‘carry’ is placed over the cup the silicone lining in the ring creates an airtight seal which prevents accidental spillage, to take it apart simply shake the bottle to make the silicone seal wet making it weak enough to take apart by twisting the ‘carry’.
