Personal water bottles help preserve the environment. They reduce the number of plastic bottles that litter the earth. In fact, reusable water bottles have become so popular that by the end of 2018, the reusable bottle industry garnered more than $8 billion and is currently on the rise.
Here’s a more gruesome fact: Reusable water bottles hold 40,000 more bacteria than a toilet seat. The reality that scrubbing down a water bottle every day can be tedious only helps this statistic thrive.
What if your water bottle could help save the environment, and clean itself in the process?
Noerden, a French brand, used Shanghai technology, along with a chic, Parisian design, to create and launch LIZ in 2019. LIZ is a water bottle in its own caliber that effectively self-cleans.
If you’re a germaphobe or just downright intrigued, you may be wondering how the process goes down. The LIZ water bottle uses UV sterilization to destroy 99.9% of viruses and bacteria, making sure that the contents of the bottle are fresh and safe to drink, leaving no odor behind.
It gets even better. To activate the sterilization function, all you need to do is tap the lid twice. If the water bottle contains a liquid, the UV system will sterilize it. If the water bottle is empty, the UV will clean the interior instead.
The LIZ doesn’t stop short at sterilization.
It can also tell you the temperature of the water you’re consuming. If you tap the bottle once, it will show the temperature range of the water bottle. The bottle is also easy to hold on to for those long walks in the park or jogging days. The silicone makes for an anti-slip grip, and the lightweight design of the bottle makes it convenient to carry. You don’t have to worry about making a mess with your drink of choice, as the bottle also features a built-in detector that lets you know when your lid isn’t secured.
You can get your bottle in the 350ml or 480ml size. Pick the color white or black if you’re feeling classic, or a fun baby pink or blue. A vibrant red is not out of the question either. For under $100 you can have everything that the LIZ water bottle offers.
The LIZ water bottle essentially does it all, but we haven’t even gotten to the best part. If you’re looking to seriously increase your water consumption, this water bottle can help you along your journey. The bottle has a blinking light that goes off every two hours, conveniently reminding users to stay hydrated.
If you’re still not convinced, take a look at what these verified buyers had to say:
“I bought the Noerden Liz as part of the crowdfunding campaign and I must say I have absolutely no regrets. I really struggled to find a bottle that I found aesthetically pleasing and even though Liz is quite expensive I think the extra versatility compensates for this. As someone who travels frequently the ability to sterilise water from public sources is a great advantage. Saves money on bottled water and keeps you safe in a pinch…”
– Jon A.
“I’ve read so much about the Cleansing potential of UV and now this power has been harnessed in a bottle!”
“Does exactly what is advertised. Keeps drinks cool for a long time and will keep drinks warm for a period. Probably best to stick with water though as that’s really what the uv filter seems designed for.”
– Chris R.
Don’t stress over the cleanliness of your water bottle ever again, and invest in one that will help keep you on track with your goals and last for quite some time as well. The LIZ water bottle offers all of this and more without compromising its beautiful, sleek, compact aesthetic.
