In an effort to bring Australians back to the tap and away from fancy disposable bottled water brands, Kor has sexed up the humble refillable water bottle with a head turning design and cutting edge features sure to excite those in search of a “green” drinking accessory.

KOR-Bottle.jpgThe Kor One has a one-handed lid hatch system allowing easy opening and closing, a hinged cap that stays open while you drink and doesn’t leak even when laid flat. The bottle has an extra-wide mouth that is both easy to drink from and lets you drop in decent-sized ice cubes.

Culligan Water, Australia’s leading experts in residential and commercial water filter systems have partnered with Kor to provide a holistic alternative to buying bottled water. “We want Australians to think “refill, reuse, recycle” by combining a refillable water bottle with their home or office water filter. For only cents per litre of impurity-free drinking water, everyone can significantly reduce the use of water, oil, plastic and carbon emissions required to make bottled water by each person using just one bottle,” says Tim Gordon, general manager of Culligan Water.

“Our aim is to reduce plastic bottle waste into landfills by 100 million bottles per year. We can achieve this if people move from buying single use disposable bottles to re-useable bottles like the Kor bottle.”

The Kor One bottle is made from Eastman Tritan, which is free of bisphenol-A (BPA), a leaching toxin found in polycarbonate bottles.
