Water filter with an eye on environmental problems

Whalter is a water filter system that purifies tap water in order to reduce the use of disposable plastic bottles. Through its symbolic aesthetic it raises the awareness towards the terrible consequences on marine fauna deriving from plastic pollution in our oceans. It's realized through the selection of recycled materials and a strong reduction in the amount of material used compared to traditional filter jugs. The interaction is practical: using the stick shaped in the characteristic sprinkle of water, the user is free to put the product hygienically in any jug or glass already at disposal.
