Corn-based water bottle and filter introduced

Englewood, CO— New Wave Enviro Products® introduced a new Better Water Bottle Filter™ and corn-based bottle. The Better Water Bottle Filter™ provides pure, clean drinking water and can be reused up to 90 times. The corn-based bottle takes merely 80 days to decompose.

A recent report by the Earth Policy Institute found that bottled water requires over 2.7 million tons of plastic annually, taking between 400 and 1,000 years to decompose. New Wave Enviro Products’® Corn Bottle is made of the most renewable polymer available — NatureWorks’® PLA — through a fermentation process using corn, making it completely recyclable and compostable.

In addition to environmental effects of water bottles going to landfills, concerns are also mounting about the health effect of chlorine in public water supplies.

At under $9 for the combination Corn Bottle and Better Water Bottle Filter, the cost for filtered water is less than $.05 cents per 8 ounce glass, making this product wallet-friendly as well as Earth-friendly. The compact 4” x 1 1/4” filter also fits any standard water bottle.

New Wave Enviro Products will contribute 3% of the gross profits from the sale of the bottles to Organic Farming Organizations to promote environmentally-friendly farming practices.
