IS IT TIME TO GET NKD AND BAN THE PLASTIC BOTTLE?

Amid heated discussions on whether plastic bottles should stay or be banned for good – and with businesses such as Borough Market and Pret-A-Manger leading the way in ditching them – British startup nkdshakes up the global bottled water market with the pod+. This may look like a beautifully designed reusable water bottle, but its inbuilt, replaceable filter, which uses technology from the NASA space programme, naturally recreates the qualities found in mountain mineral water. What’s more, the pod+ can deep clean water from contaminated sources such as dirty rivers and lakes, filtering up to 99.9% of contaminants while you drink.
