Good quality drinking water is vital for people worldwide; however, in many parts of the world, it is not always readily available. Against this backdrop, LARQ represents an impressively innovative development, as this system is capable of automatically cleaning water anywhere. By means of proprietary LED technology, the bottle makes it possible to easily access clean water while on the move. The cleaning process is based on the emission of ultraviolet light in the UV-C range, which instantly destroys bacteria and viruses inside the water. In addition, this technology also prevents musty odours without the need for chemical treatment or otherwise onerous filtration processes. The design of the reusable LARQ Bottle is an answer not only to the problem of wasteful, single-use water bottles, but also to the fact that many people around the world lack access to clean water that is free of disease-causing waterborne microbes. Thus, this water bottle combines sophisticated functionality with clear lines and a stylish design vocabulary. Made of high-quality materials, its outer shell is made up of two sturdy layers that make it robust and highly durable. LARQ also impresses with an attractive colour scheme with a fresh appearance achieved through a two-tone powder-coated finish.
