The team at TAPP Water, lead by co-founders Magnus Jern and Alex Schwarz, is driven by the mission to eliminate plastic water bottle waste, and they’ve turned to a surprising material to help.
Their faucet filters are made with coconut shell carbon block that's mostly biodegradable, along with non-toxic bioplastics. A filter removes over 80 contaminants from water and can work for up to three months—the equivalent of filtering 400 gallons of water. Installation is straightforward and you can switch the filter on and off.
And while a filter removes things like chlorine, lead, and pesticides from water, it leaves behind good-for-you minerals, like calcium, potassium, and iron. Want to get connected to what’s happening at the faucet? There’s a Bluetooth-connected filter that updates you via its app when it’s time to order replacement cartridges and tracks things like cost savings and plastic bottle waste saved.
