Most of us have jumped on the BPA-free, no waste, reusable stainless steel water bottle band wagon. But, many of you may be wary of your tap water and don't always have access to filtered water. Well, EcoUsable has a solution, the Ech2o – a stainless steel water bottle with a built-in filter in the cap.According to EcoUsable, an “Ionic-Adsorption Micro-Filtration System” is built-in to the sports cap top. The Ech2o top removes up to 99.99% of pollutants for up to 50 gallons of filtered water - find out more details here.
We think this is a great concept, but 50 gallons isn’t really that much. The company should offer replacement filters/sports caps, which we didn’t see available on their website. The bottles are available in 25oz food grade stainless steel in several colors; each bottle is $44.99.
