How Acuva is helping to make Plastic Free July a reality around the world

Just as it is across the globe, Plastic Free July is a big deal for Acuva Technologies. 

Last year, more than 120 million people in 177 countries took part in the challenge to reduce plastic waste, with a global IPSOS survey revealing that nearly a third of respondents were aware of the campaign, and almost half of those chose to take part. At the same time, a recent Globe and Mail story reveals that 56 percent of Canadians surveyed support a total ban on single-use plastics.

One of Plastic Free July’s most popular and prominent tips involves using reusable water bottles to avoid single-use plastic. Across most of Canada, where clean drinking water flows freely and safely from public taps and drinking fountains, this is a perfectly viable option. But what about those countries where water isn’t always safe to drink? What about those parts of Canada where boil-water advisories are still in effect? What about the more than 2 billion people who, according to the World Health Organization, consume contaminated water?

That’s where Acuva comes in. Our Arrow and Eco systems have provided safe drinking water to many recreational Marine and RV customers, as well as remote and off-grid homes. They can trust the water from their taps, knowing that is has been safely treated with UV. It makes for a much more convenient and sustainable alternative to carrying single-use plastic water bottles during their travels. 

In addition, our Strike platform ensures health and safety by purifying drinking water with microbial disinfection rates as high as 99.9999 percent. Its slim and compact form-factor enables easy integration into a wide array of consumer and commercial OEM appliances, including water coolers, dispensers and fountains. 

In the Philippines, for instance, we are playing a leading role in the provision of safe drinking water and the reduction of plastic waste. In March, we partnered with the country’s largest manufacturer of drinking fountains and water dispensers, Kooler Industries, to help protect the health and safety of everyone who uses the thousands of Kooler units in schools, shopping malls, restaurants, factories and resorts. The initial order of 5,000 UV-LED water disinfection modules is helping Filipinos prevent an estimated 6 billion bottles from ending up in garbage dumps and landfills — and in the stomachs of whales and other wildlife — by turning to safe water fountains instead of single-use containers. 

Every step forward matters. Global consumption of bottled water is growing by as much as 10 percent each year, with an estimated 35 billion plastic bottles being landfilled, littered, or incinerated instead of recycled. This puts unnecessary stress on landfills and the environment while wasting upwards of $1 billion worth of reusable plastic, which take up to 700 years to decompose. 

With just one Acuva system capable of eliminating as many as 1.2 million plastic water bottles over its lifetime, we are proud to be making a difference in the war against plastic waste. At the same time, organizations like Ban the Bottle are committed to eliminating the production and circulation of plastic water bottles. Check out its website, which is full of facts, tools, and resources to help you take action. 

On that note, we encourage innovation-minded original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) operating in this industry in developing countries — or anywhere else for that matter — to connect with us by calling 1-800-980-8810 or emailing info@acuvatech.com.

Introducing the NEW Acuva Eco Purifier
Blog Hero - Eco Product Launch.jpg

At Acuva, we believe a well-designed product is one that offers a real solution to a real problem. Over the years, we’ve spent countless hours chatting to boat, RV, and cottage owners, learning more about their drinking water habits, likes, dislikes, and values.

These conversations inspired our suite of Arrow purifiers. Each system offers a complete water purification solution that is energy efficient, low maintenance, and environmentally friendly.

Today, we are proud to introduce you to the newest addition to our product line-up: the Acuva Eco Purifier.

Designed for Real Life

Success, for us, is about keeping our customers at the heart of our business. Your feedback helped us reimagine our 1L unit’s shape and size, resulting in a smarter, sleeker way to access clean drinking water.

You told us you value trust, and we listened.

We understand how important it is to have peace of mind that the water you serve your friends and family truly is safe to drink. You should never have to question or doubt its cleanliness or quality.

For years, we’ve delivered trusted water purification systems, and the Eco Purifier is no exception. By leveraging the latest in UV-LED technologies, we’ve raised the bar when it comes to safety standards, producing a unit to help you confidently enjoy the great outdoors.

You told us you value convenience, and we listened.

We’ve designed the Eco Purifier to be durable, low maintenance, and easy on the eye. The system installs alongside your existing tap, offering a seamless integration that won’t clutter your space.

Not sure when your water is ready to drink? The Eco Purifier’s intelligent light indicator makes it easy: a blue light means your system is up, running, and ready to serve clean, fresh-tasting water. 

You told us you value space, and we listened.

At only 9.9” x 3.6” x 1.6”, the Eco Purifier is our smallest form factor yet.

We understand space on board your boat and RV is limited. Designing our product with compactness in mind allows you to reclaim space previously reserved for bulky water storage tanks and flats of bottled water.

Purpose built to fit below your sink, the Eco Purifier eliminates the need for alternative water purification techniques and technologies.

You told us you value performance, and we listened.

The Eco Purifier has a flow rate of 1L (or 0.25 gallons) per minute. Put another way, that works out to two 16oz water bottles every 60 seconds.

We’ve been working behind the scenes with our LED supplier to build ultra-efficient water purification systems. Incorporating new, more powerful LEDs means our system achieves the same result with fewer lights. This not only reduces the unit’s size, but also its power requirements. Unlike UV lamps, our patented UV-LED technology does not require you to keep the system running at all times; instead, the system is only activated when you turn the faucet on, providing purified water on demand.

Our Eco Purifiers are now available--click here to bring one with you on your next adventure.
