Faucet Face

50% off set of 2 Faucet Face bottles!
For over a decade, bottled water companies have spent millions of dollars to try and persuade us that their product is better than tap water. They served up ads with pristine mountainscapes, snow-fed rivers, and we drank 
it up. 

All the while the implication was that tap water was inferior. Heck, sometimes they just came out and 
said as much. 

What has been tap's response? Unfortunately it has never a marketing budget to help it stand up for itself. Until recently most of tap's defenders have put forth somewhat crude campaigns made by local utility companies and non-profits. While their intentions are good, their work pales in comparison to the sophisticated marketing tactics of private bottlers. 

We want to bring back tap water's dignity. It just needs a little makeover to help change people's minds and Faucet Face is here to lead the charge.

'Hummingbird Feeder' Glass Bottle

Discarded empty water bottles impact birds and other wildlife. For example on Midway island in the North Pacific, albatross are attracted to small pieces of plastic such as bottled water lids that they think are food. 

The consequences of their mistake are heartbreaking.

Help us spread the word about the environmental damage bottled water causes and lets curb needless bottled water waste.

'Hose Water' Glass Bottle

Remember when you drank hose water as a kid? You had no shame in taking a sip from that spigot.
But then somewhere along the way, bottled water companies convinced us that tap water wasn't safe, and that the only alternative was what they were selling.
But we can reverse the trend! Let other people know you prefer 'hose water' and let's make tap water fun to drink again.

'Tap Is Terrific' Glass Bottle

‘Terrific’ is an understatement! Tap water comes from thousands of miles away, down rivers and over mountains, underground and up through copper pipes right to your faucet. It’s magic, really.
Whether you fill up straight from the faucet or use a filter, let people know you're drinking tap!

Why Glass?
Everything tastes better in glass! It's also dishwasher safe unlike some other reusable water bottles. And as a bonus, dishwashers use less water than cleaning by hand, so you know, win-win.

How big are the bottles?
They hold 425ml or about 14.4 oz.

Is this a good "on-the-go" bottle?
While the bottle is pretty durable, we designed it for casual home and office use so we don't recommend you bring it on a marathon. If you want something for jogging or hiking, we suggest you check out what the guys at Tappening have to offer. 

Are you giving some of the proceeds to charity?
Yes, a portion of the profits from each bottle go to making biosand filters. And if you buy 4 bottles from our site an entire filter will get made!

What's that cap like?
It's a simple screw cap made of BPA-free plastic.

Where are the bottles made?
They're made by a European based manufacturer at their branch in China.

BPA Free
