About


   

The QUARTZ bottle is a reusable, rechargeable, insulated water bottle that cleans itself and the water you put inside it. With digital purification from UVC light, your water and bottle is purified at the touch of a button.
 
  

 

We all want to drink more water and use less plastic, but existing reusable bottles do not make it easy. We surveyed 200+ people and found these common issues: 

The results are appalling with more than a million bottles every minute being added to landfills around the world. That’s over 480 billion annually and climbing - enough plastic to wrap around the earth’s equator more than twice. Every. Year.

That’s a statistic you don’t want to be a part of. Bottom line is that the existing reusable bottles are failing to curb the use of plastic bottles.

That’s why we started QUARTZ with a simple idea: Pure water from a self-cleaning bottle.

The QUARTZ Bottle is designed to solve the biggest consumer pain points so there are no more excuses to reach for that one-use plastic bottle.
  
  

 

   
   

 

 

 

 

Whether you’re on the trail, at the gym, or in the office, you know that staying hydrated helps you feel and perform your best. So don’t think twice about whether you want to grab a refill.

 

Explore new trails and new countries with confidence. Even when you’re not sure about your water source, you can count on QUARTZ to eliminate bacterial and viral contaminants.

When your body needs water the most, make sure it’s getting the best. The inside of your water bottle should be a whole lot cleaner than the inside of your gym bag.

Clean water isn’t a privilege, it’s a right. The QUARTZ Bottle gives you the power to take pure water with you everywhere you go, sanitizing enough water for your whole family with a single charge.

QUARTZ combines the power of the sun with the advances of the digital age. The UVC LED chips in QUARTZ are smaller, more energy efficient, less toxic (mercury free), and more economical compared to traditional Mercury based UV technology.

663 million people in the world live without safe drinking water. We believe technology and design has the ability to transform lives. That is why we are continually exploring innovative ways of working with nonprofit organizations to bring our core technology to the millions in need of access to clean water.

When you support the QUARTZ Bottle - we will donate 1% of all proceeds to our charity partner charity: water
  
  

 
  

  
We are QUARTZ. QUARTZ was started with a simple vision where innovative technology can be combined with inspirational design to help people access pristine drinking water easily and sustainably. We harness the power of the sun to bring that stinky water bottle to the digital age.

No chemicals, no scrubbing, no compromises.

Our products look as good as they make you feel. We are confident that these are the most beautiful hydration products in the world that make it easy to make the healthier and sustainable choice, anytime and anywhere.

You are what you drink. So drink brilliantly.
  

  


      

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

The core UV-C LED technology has been tested and commercialized. Our supply chain is also ready and proven for this key portion of the product.
We will begin the manufacturing and production process based on the current design of the bottle as soon as we meet our target. With your support, we can quickly scale and expedite the manufacturing and production process so that we can get the QUARTZ Bottle into hands of thousands, and you can be proud to know that you made it happen. While we have budgeted sufficient resources and time, we know that there might be things outside of our control and current visibility:

Shipping in Spring 2018 - We plan to place the manufacturing order by the Dec. 2017 / Jan. 2018. We'll iterate, review samples and do quality control in January and February. March 2018 / April 2018 is our shipping estimate when we account for both making revisions and getting the first shipment in from the factory. Just in time for summer! We don't anticipate any issues currently with this timeline. However, if by chance anything unexpected happens, we promise to keep you informed, both during the campaign and afterward.

Battery Life - our initial testing shows our battery life will last around 2-3 months in a combination of normal usage (2-3 fills a day) and in Self Cleaning mode. We are doing further testing to validate this but will ensure battery life will not be something our consumers will ever worry about.
