How Water-to-Go Was Invaluable To The Global Convoy

The project began in early 2016 with the idea to travel around the world as cheaply as possible through overlanding. The group; Max, Becca, Joel and Rich, created the concept of attempting to complete a full loop of the globe with no planning and with a tiny budget. We knew this would entail many challenging situations that would require serious team work. Shortly after sharing this idea on Facebook a number of people got involved and the team began to grow. We looked for the cheapest cars available on Gumtree, the first being a Skoda Felica for £75 and the second being a Nissan Micra for just £150. After purchasing these and getting more people involved this created a solid team for the convoy. We then started approaching sponsors asking for help through donating kit or support us and as a result, Water-to-Go were one of first product sponsors. 

Then we set off East. Travelling across 4 continents and a total of 46 countries, we found ourselves in all sorts of situations both good and bad. Being an optimistic and a slightly crazy team from the start, we were ready to face all challenges ahead of us and only hope for the best of situations. Our first continent, Europe showed us the possibilities of collecting hitchhikers and at one point we had a total of 5 cars with 26 people. We were lucky enough to have our Water-to-Go bottles for the entire journey but even within Europe, we found ourselves cutting our costs by filling up from waterfalls, lakes and rivers.

Entering Russia and Central Asia on the other hand, was another story. Things became a lot more serious and challenging. Due to the roads in this part of the world being in some cases ‘non-existent’ we had some of our biggest breakdowns on the trip. The first, being in Kazakhstan, when we hit the oil sump on the diesel Skoda and were stranded in the desert. A twelve hour journey turned into 3 days, but we were rescued by the amazing workers at a nearby oil refinery. During this time as we weren’t prepared to be stranded in the desert, Water-to-Go was literally a life saver. We were given water from a passer-by and we didn’t even question using our bottles as we knew that although we had no idea where the water had come from we could drink without having to worry about illness or dehydration.

After our final sprint to Vladivostok just in time for our visas expiring, we flew to Japan. This was the first time the Convoy as a whole were without the cars and to embrace Japans hospitality and quirky culture we decided to hitchhike our way to Korea where we would later fly on to Canada to collect the cars. Japan gave us some of the most in-depth cultural experiences from to drifting down Mountain ranges near Mount Fuji and Samurai sword making, but this was our first experience backpacking with Water-to-Go. It allowed us to carry all our gear and not have to worry about lugging around litres of water. This convenience allowed us to focus our time on absorbing the culture rather than worrying about when we would next find drinking water.

Pacaya Volcano, Guatemala

Canada was the first of our shipping nightmares! We were faced with a month-long delay but on the positive side this allowed us to venture out into British Columbia and explore the beautiful nature that Canada has to offer. We were lucky enough to experience the beautiful landscapes of North America by visiting an array of national parks, including Yosemite. As hikers we used our bottles frequently in Yosemite, filling up from some of the most famous waterfalls! Being able to drink such untreated water and not getting sick felt literally so refreshing.

As we headed south through both Central and South America we continued to be accepted into communities across Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. This part of the world was very much new territory for the majority of us and we found ourselves captivated by its temples and Mayan history. Unfortunately, some of these areas are heavily covered in rubbish. We were horrified to see piles burning on roadsides continuously through Central and South America and beaches swamped with plastic. It was saddening to see beaches in Utilla, Honduras covered in plastic that had washed up from other places, destroying the environment. For the team it was a time of realisation that Water-to-Go bottles help prevent this. We calculated that if the team were to drink an average of 2 litres of water a day, for the duration of the trip, we would have used around 2,760, 1 litre plastic bottles.

We wanted to create a project where everyone and anyone could be involved and we would work with what people had to offer. Not only were we optimistic for ourselves, but by creating a project for all to be involved, created optimism in others and gave opportunities to likeminded people. The project specifically demonstrates how little equipment or modification to your car you need in order to survive. At times we wished we were more prepared but our teamwork and optimism got us through the journey and from this we have created some strong friendships with people all over the world. Sponsors like Water-to-Go really helped us achieve this goal and have been hugely influential on our journey and survival. Upon our return we have been taking our Water-to-Go bottle with us across Europe to an array of Outdoor and Adventure shows where we were able to share this amazing product.

Becca has also featured Water-to-Go in her top 10 Essentials to Travelling. These include the things that she has taken with her everywhere around the world.

Chaz Powell becomes new Water-to-Go ambassador

Water-to-Go is delighted to announce that Chaz Powell has become a new ambassador for the brand. This a fantastic opportunity for the business and for Chaz so we are excited to see what the future holds.

We caught up with our new ambassador – “It is a huge honour to announce that I have now been made an ambassador for the life-saving water filtration system Water-to-Go.

Water-to-Go is a product that has breathed new life into my expeditions over the past few years and is now one of the most crucial pieces of kit that I carry whilst out on my many remote and wild journeys.
It has changed the way I look at adventure, allowing me to venture further into more and more inaccessible regions, but yet still obtain safe clean drinking water without the worry of becoming sick or seriously dehydrated. With my plans for more wild African based trekking adventures in motion, I look forward to continuing to be supported and using such an incredible piece of equipment.”

Chaz recently completed his Zambezi Hike – walking the length of the Zambezi River and eventually reaching the Indian Ocean completely unaided. It was an incredible achievement which lasted 137 days, 3000km & 4 million steps! We were pleased that Water-to-Go was an important part of this expedition and that Chaz wants to continue his journey in partnership with Water-to-Go.

It is great to see that our values align as Chaz is also an advocate of sustainable and responsible travel. Using the Water-to-Go bottles is a great way of reducing your carbon footprint and plastic waste when travelling. It is the perfect alternative to single-use plastic bottles and is the solution to the huge plastic pollution problem in our oceans. Chaz will be helping us to spread the word so it is great to have someone onboard who is going to be amplifying these values to the wider public.

Chaz is always looking for his next challenge and we want to make sure that Water-to-Go is with him every step of the way. He is currently looking to do a couple of big treks over the next couple of months. He is also planning some bigger expeditions which we can’t wait to tell everyone about. You can be sure that Chaz has a lot in store in the next few years and we are looking forward to what we can achieve together.

Dave Cornthwaite gives a TEDx talk in Brussels

Adventurer, Dave Cornthwaite is the latest star of the famous Tedx Events giving a talk on ‘How to Create a Life You Don’t Need a Holiday From’.

Having attained everything he’d always been told would define a successful adulthood, Dave Cornthwaite shares how he swapped comfort for a life of adventure, accidentally started a community and realised that ultimately, the bravest thing we can do is accept that we’re different from everybody else.

Since quitting a job as a really bad graphic designer in 2005, Dave Cornthwaite has developed a successful career based around his passions.

At the core, he is a record-breaking adventurer who has travelled over 19,000 miles in eleven journeys as part of his groundbreaking Expedition1000 project: 25 journeys of 1000 miles or more, each using a different form of non-motorised transport.

Dave has written three books: the bestselling Life in the Slow Lane, a hapless search for love in Date, and BoardFree, the story of how he left his job to skateboard further than anyone ever had.

His uniquely entertaining and motivational keynote presentations have been enjoyed on six continents and his passionate advocacy of the word YES has contributed to the sprouting of countless adventures worldwide, big and small.

In between adventures Dave is committed to enabling others to reach their own potential and a life fully realised through social journeys, workshops, group expeditions and mindset-shaping projects. He runs a social enterprise called SayYesMore and a community of doers called The YesTribe, as well as annual Exploring Mindset paddles down the Mississippi.

If his enthusiasm for simple living, the power of adventure for good and the glorious pursuit of enjoying Mondays isn’t enough to get you ready for a new challenge, nothing will.

Dave is no stranger to the benefits of Water-to-Go on an adventure. During his ‘Walk the Masar‘ expedition, Dave and fellow adventurer, Leon walked 1,000 miles across the Middle East armed with their trusty filter bottles.

Watch Dave’s Tedx talk below:

2,500 plastic bottles pulled out of the Thames in 1 DAY

We’re always trying to highlight the devastating impact that single-use plastics have on our planet.

It’s easy for it to go over our heads when we hear overwhelming stats and figures about the issue on a larger scale, but it’s only when we look closer to home that we start realising the horrifying reality.

Recently litter pickers in London found 2,500 plastic bottles in just ONE DAY on the Thames. Just one day!

Volunteers from London based charity, Thames 21, collected the huge amount of rubbish from 11 different sites on the river. The event has given an eye-opening indication on how many plastic bottles are in the Thames at a particular time. The charity plans to repeat the study 4 times a year which will help determine how long it takes to build up and what times of year it’s at its worse.

The charity decided to use the ‘cleaner’ river as a test to see how quickly new bottles were junked. Monitoring the sites for 8 days after the litter pick yielded some interesting results. On just one of the eleven sites, they recorded 10 bottles wash up on the Friday and a staggering 117 bottles on the Saturday! (Site: Battersea). These figures show how consistently plastic bottles polluting our rivers and ultimately (if it wasn’t for the amazing work of charities like Thames 21) our oceans.

AJ McConville, who conducted the study has said:

“It’s sad that mineral water is the most common plastic bottle we’re finding, when bottled water is no better for us than water from the tap.”

 “We urge Londoners– use reusable water bottles, and demand more water fountains around the capital.”

Each filter in one Water-to-Go bottle can treat 200 litres of water anywhere in the world. That’s 400 single-use plastic water bottles. That means just 6 of Water-to-Go filters would be equivalent to nearly the same amount of plastic bottles that were pulled out of the Thames in just one day (6 filters = 2,400 50cl water bottles).

‘Deposit Return Systems’ (DRS) have been suggested as a good way of encouraging those who do use plastic bottles to recycle. DRS is where a tax is added to plastic bottles and can be redeemed when returned. Such systems are used across Europe, America and Canada. The idea to introduce a similar scheme in the England has recently been rejected by the Government. 

The recent levy on plastic bags has seen a dramatic 80% reduction.

Water Purification Methods…

Whether you’re getting close with nature in the great outdoors or drinking from questionable taps on your gap year, holiday, backpacking or hiking adventure you’re going to need safe access to water.

Coming down with the dreaded ‘Delhi Belly’ or ‘Travellers Diarrhoea’ can wipe out an entire trip or holiday, not to mention the more serious contamination that can be lurking in untreated water.

Travelling outside of the UK, you are exposed to a number of different water contaminants that often force us to rely on bottled water (which is extremely bad for the environment, not to mention the vast expense).

Hepatitis A, E.Coli, Cholera, Weils’s Disease, Giardia, Legionnaires Disease and Cryptosporidium to name a few!

The only way to make sure what is in our water when we’re away from home is to treat it ourselves. But, what is the best method for purifying water?

Let’s take a look at the some of the different methods for treating water:

Boiling

pot-883036_1920Boiling water to remove unwanted germs is the oldest trick in the book. It’s extremely effective in eliminating microbiological contaminants from the water. It’s recommended to bring the water to a rolling boil for a minimum of 1 minute to purify it. At an altitude above 2,000 metres you should increase this to 3 minutes.

What does boiling water remove: Microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses and protozoa.

What doesn’t boiling water remove: heavy metals such as lead, debris, nitrates and pesticides.

Advantages of boiling water: Very effective for removing harmful organisms, no cost involved.

Disadvantages of boiling water: Time consuming; access to heating method required E.g. fire, stove or kettle, not effective against potentially harmful chemicals or metals that may be in the water. Smell and taste are not improved.

Purification Tablets/Halogens

Purification tablets/halogens, have always been pill-in-water-1529109-639x1052a popular choice for outdoor trekkers and travellers to treat water. For a time, they were the only alternative to boiling water. Essentially they use chemicals to kill off microbiological contaminants from the water. Iodine was traditionally used to purify water. However, in 2009, The European Union (EU) banned the sale of Iodine for use in disinfecting drinking water due to it’s associated health risks. The most common tablets or drops used are made from chlorine, silver or chlorine dioxide.

What do purification tablets kill: Microorganisms such as Bactria, viruses, cysts (depending on type).

What don’t purification tablets remove: Chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, sediment.

Advantages of purification tablets: Small and Lightweight, cheap and cost effective.

Disadvantages of purification tablets: Usually a minimum wait-time of 30 minutes. Some require a wait-time of up to 4 hours to kill contaminants such as cryptosporidium. After the water has been treated, you then still drink the chemicals and additives. Usually have a foul taste.

Ultraviolet Light (UV)

uvwaterfilterUsing UV light to purify water is great for neutralising microbiological contaminants such as bacteria, viruses and cysts. They are operated using batteries and are usually small (often in a pen form) and lightweight. There are also versions of the technology in water bottles as well. The process is very quick, usually taking 60-90 seconds.

What does UV light kill: Microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses and protozoa.

What doesn’t UV light remove: Chemicals, heavy metals sediments and debris.

Advantages of UV light: Small and lightweight (depending on type).

Disadvantages of UV light: Relies on batteries (restricted access to batteries when travelling). Won’t remove any sediment or debris, taste or odours.

Water Filters

poresize copyWater filters are fantastic for dealing with all types of different water contaminants (depending on which one you go for). They traditionally involve drawing water through a microscopic hole (pore) by pumping or sucking. Most water filters for outdoor use or travel will be able to deal with bacteria and protozoa (Cryptosporidium and Giardia lamblia for example). Very few are equipped to deal with viruses.

Water filters for gap years, outdoor use and travel, come in a variety of formats including straws, pump units and water bottles.

Some water filters use a simple ‘carbon block’ technology. These are known as charcoal filters or activated carbon filters. Whilst these types of filters are excellent to reduce chemicals, and odours in domestic tap water they are not recommended to be used with untreated water such as rivers, streams or suspect tap water abroad.

Some water filters will combine a number of different filtering methods that will also remove viruses from the water as well as a large number of chemicals, heavy metals and pesticides.

What do water filters remove: Most should eliminate bacteria and cysts. Some will filter viruses if they have a combination of technologies or a small enough pore size. Some will even eliminate chemicals, heavy metals and pesticides.

What don’t water filters remove: Depends on type.

Advantages of water filters: Usually light, portable, quick and cost effective (depending on type).

Disadvantages of water filters: Filters will eventually need to be replaced. Flow rate may be slow (depending on type).

Traditionally when choosing a water filter, the most important question was ‘what is the pore size’. When you’re dealing with microbiological contaminants there are 3 key groups that need to be considered.

  • Protozoan cysts E.g. Cryptosporidium and Giardia lamblia. These range from 1 to 300 microns in size.
  • Bacteria E.g. Escherichia coli (E. coli), Leptospira. These range from 0.1 to 10 microns.
  • Viruses E.g. Hepatitis A, Polio, tota virus, rotavirus, enterovirus, norovirus, Norwalk virus. These are extremely small and range from 0.005 to 0.1 micron.

Unless the filter has a small enough pore size to deal with all of the above, or has a combination of technologies then it will be restricted in what it removes. Wanderlust Magazine, recently compared and reviewed a number of different water filters currently available.

When talking about the pore size, we refer back to standard technology. The mechanical restriction of the size of the pores has been the traditional 
measure of what a filter will eliminate. This is not the case with all filters. For example, Water-to-Go uses a unique combination of three technologies, each performs individually but it is the combination that makes it unique. Water-to-Go use a combination of two nano technologies, which not only reduce the pore size to 0.7 microns, but also create a positive hydrostatic charge in the membrane which attract and traps even the smallest of viruses!

watertogopurificationbottleIn addition to the nano technology used in Water-to-Go filter water bottles, activated carbon is used. However, instead of glueing them into a block (which loses 60% of its efficiency), it is incorporated into the membrane so it works at maximise the benefits.

What does Water-to-Go remove: All microbiological contaminants including Bacteria, Viruses, Protozoa, Cysts, Chemicals like chlorine and fluoride, heavy metals like copper and lead as well as pesticides. See full list.

What doesn’t Water-to-Go remove: The positively charged minerals, E.g. calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium.

Advantages of Water-to-Go: Small and lightweight. Cost effective. Fast Flow rate (10-12ml per second) Works instantly, doesn’t require batteries, eliminates bad taste and odours.

Disadvantages of Water-to-Go: Replaceable filter (however, these are low cost and last up to 200 litres).

The 3 technologies in Water-to-Go water bottles far exceeds the EPA requirements for microbiological filtration. Water-to-Go achieves the following reduction:

  • 6 log10 (99.9999%) for Bacteria
  • 5-6 log10 (99.999-99.9999%) for Viruses
  • 4 log10 (99.99%) Microorganisms
  • 3 log10 (99.9%) Chemicals (Chlorine, Fluoride),  Heavy Metals (lead, copper) and Pesticides.
