HaloSource, Inc. (“HaloSource” or the “Company”), the global clean water technology company that has brought clean water to millions of people around the world, today announced that it expects to launch its first consumer product under the astrea™ brand in the U.S., via a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo in March 2018. The astrea bottle is designed to be the world’s most effective daily-use filtering water bottle, tested to remove lead to the highest National Sanitation Foundation standard – NSF 53.
As the lead crisis in the U.S. water system continues to grow, HaloSource felt compelled to address the problem. The Company’s team of world class scientists and engineers has designed an on-the-go water bottle with the filtration power to remove lead and other heavy metals.
“Safe drinking water has long been a developing world problem, but as Americans, we are now experiencing our own increasing concerns over water quality,” said James Thompson, CEO of HaloSource. “For the last 20 years the Company has been focused on solving clean water problems in the developing world, and now aging infrastructure has left our water systems at home exposed to lead, with few products offering real, portable solutions. Americans, everywhere, are worried about their drinking water—at home, at their kids’ schools and in their communities. This new bottle is a portable and innovative solution that will help our communities solve the lead problem.”
The astrea bottle’s proprietary filtering technology ensures that users will have water without questions. The bottle will be made from food-grade stainless steel, is double-walled and vacuum insulated. The sleek bottle is also designed with a nested straw for anti-spill security and an easy-fill lid so there is no need to remove the filter to fill the bottle, two key pain points consumers experience using filtering water bottles. In addition, replacement filters are expected to be available for purchase via subscription at http://www.astreawater.com, as well as other retail channels.
