LOS ANGELES, Oct. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, WaterBean (www.thewaterbean.com) announced the availability of the first alkaline water filter, now available starting at $12.95.
WaterBean is a portable water filter that transforms ordinary tap water into crisp, clean alkaline water. By shaking and swirling the water bottle, users can activate the WaterBean's coconut carbon filter, which removes the chemicals and impurities often found in tap water.
"After months of planning, we are now successfully launching WaterBean to the general public," said Graeme Glen, inventor and CEO of WaterBean. "This unique water filter was developed to eliminate 'water bottle fatigue,' or the need to purchase expensive bottle water. With just one WaterBean, we reduce waste of more than 120 12-ounce water bottles from ending up in landfills or polluting our highways, rivers and streets."
The U.S., as a whole, consumes more than 8.6 billion gallons of bottled water annually, with bottled water priced up to 10,000 times the cost of tap water. In addition, countless seabirds and marine mammals die everyday when they entangle themselves or ingest plastic pollution. WaterBean's unique and portable design makes it easy to have clean water anywhere you go and helps protect the environment.
Features of the WaterBean include:
- Clean Alkaline Water – WaterBean's compostable coconut carbon filter cleans tap water by removing impurities and adding magnesium, an essential mineral that 70% of the population has a deficiency in.
- Portable – Whether you are traveling, hiking, playing sports or just on the go, the WaterBean's portability makes it easy to take anywhere, providing you with access to clean drinking water.
- Reusable – WaterBean's filters are easily replaceable after two to three months of use by simply opening the WaterBean's cover plates, replacing the filter bags and snapping the cover plates back on.
- Fits in any size bottle – From plastic bottles to sports bottles to tumblers, WaterBean fits in any bottle 12 oz or bigger and pops open once inside to prevent it from sliding out.
A single WaterBean with the coconut carbon already included starts at $12.95, with the coconut carbon refills starting at $4.95. WaterBean is currently working towards donating $1 for each unit sold to a charity that helps bring clean water to people in developing nations.

WaterBean is a portable water purifier created by entrepreneur Graeme Glen. Glen's background is in product design and marketing of consumer goods. An advocate of the environment, Glen was inspired to create WaterBean while on a family fishing trip, where his boat's propellers became entangled in a small island of plastic bottles and seaborne garbage.
WaterBean is the world's best portable alkaline water filter, transforming any water bottle into a water purification system. Made from sustainable materials, WaterBean leverages coconut carbon materials. By shaking and swirling the water bottle, the coconut carbon filter adds vital minerals to tap water and removes impurities and chemicals that are responsible for bad taste and odors.
