LAMBESC, FRANCE – Jan. 24, 2018 – Solable, a leading provider of water and energy solutions, today announced the official launch of its second product, LaVie, on Kickstarter. With a funding goal of $30,000, Solable will begin shipping products in June 2018.
“LaVie was inspired by nature and was created to help consumers enjoy pure mineral water in everyday life, without any filter or add-on products, doing away with the need for plastic bottles,” stated Pascal Nuti, co-founder, Solable. “This is an advancement in technology we are confident all consumers will appreciate in incorporating into their everyday life.”
LaVie turns tap water into pure mineral water via a glass bottle, which is placed in a natural bamboo case for 20 minutes. Its patented technology removes chlorine, chloramine, pesticides, chemicals, odors and tastes, but leaves all minerals and trace elements untouched. This process works due to electromagnetic radiation contained in the invisible solar spectrum, the UV-A. For each treatment cycle, the bottle, as well as the liter of water it contains, are completely sterilized, meaning no bacteria or virus can survive. The quality is comparable to commercial natural mineral waters.
Noteworthy facts about plastic bottles include the following:
- Every year, 100 billion bottles are not recycled and are dispersed in the environment
o If this persists, in 2050, there could be more plastic bottles in the ocean than fish
- A one liter mineral water bottle “costs” 23 centiliters of petroleum
- Durability of a plastic waste into nature is between 100 and 1,000 years
Early supporters of LaVie can purchase the product at an early bird price of $129, half off of the expected MSRP.
