OUR MOTIVATION

We drink water everyday. Some of us more than others. We get that. What we don't get is how the newer, fancier bottles are overcomplicating this ritual with apps and electronics. They're even demanding us to drink specific amounts of water at fixed timings. You might as well call us hydration robots.

Sure, many bottles out there are 'simple' and 'do the job' but how many are actually intuitive, fun, or simply satisfying?

That's what got us started on our mission. 

That's why we designed 8UP. 

MEET 8UP

The no-tech water bottle that makes tracking your hydration, straightforward.

MARKINGS THAT MAKE SENSE

We did away with the ml and ounces. There were too many lines gauging water at levels we didn’t use at all. What we have are just 3 clean and clear lines that denote water in glasses. Yes, glasses – finally something we're all familiar with. Doesn't it make you wonder why all bottles aren't made like this in the first place?

8UP COUNTS UP TO 8

All you have to do when you reach a marking is to twist the base, and *click* 8UP will help you remember how many glasses you've drunk. With our number dial, It's easy for anyone to check their daily intake at a glance. No tech, no fuss.

Magnified Numbers!
Magnified Numbers!

 8UP not only simplifies tracking; it supplies an obtainable single-digit goal. The way 8UP works makes it unobtrusive and intuitive such that hydration habits can be nurtured, instead of forced.

ALL YOUR FAVORITE COLORS

 8UP is available in Lake Blue, Mint, Coral and Charcoal.


8UP FOLLOWS YOU EVERYWHERE

Always by your side.
Always by your side.


WHAT WE'RE MADE OF

8UP is dishwasher safe
8UP is dishwasher safe

8UP's made of clear Eastman Tritan – a 100% BPA free plastic that is shock resistant. It's cap and dial are made of Polypropylene (PP) a similarly hard plastic.  This means that 8UP's perfect for kids and also safe to throw in the dishwasher. Through rain or shine 8UP will be there to assist your hydration needs.

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing the bottle
We have sought multiple factories and samples to secure a product that's responsibly sourced at an optimum quality. We are currently in the midst of finalising our manufacturers. Since our bottle is also no-tech, it removes many potential complications and makes manufacturing much more straightforward.

We will be constantly in contact with our manufacturer to mitigate any unexpected problems.

Shipping
We have factored in ample time for sample reviewing and final manufacturing to ensure everyone gets their 8UP bottle on time. We are confident in bringing 8UP to your doors by the specified deadline.
