BRITA  Fill & Go recives the 2014 “red dot design award”

The BRITA water filter bottle impresses and inspires designers from all over the world

Taunusstein, 7 April 2014. International design experts chose BRITA’s Fill&Go water filter bottle as winner of the renowned “red dot design award” for 2014 in the product category “Product Design”. BRITA, the globally successful expert on drinking water optimization, already accepted the international iF design award for this product in March 2014.

The BRITA Fill&Go water filter bottle was launched in late summer 2012 and is now available throughout Europe, as well as in Australia and South Africa. Its owners use it out on trips, e.g., in the car, on the train or the underground, as well as for outdoor and keep-fit activities. The BRITA Fill&Go can be refilled with fresh drinking water from the tap anywhere and at any time, improving the taste and smell of drinking water with its activated carbon filter. The water filter hidden in its lid, known as the Fill&Go filter disc, provides one week’s supply of fresh, pleasant-tasting water. The BPA-free bottle comes in four colours. It holds around 600 millilitres of water and fits into all standard bottle holders. The BRITA Fill&Go is made of long-lasting materials, can be easily cleaned in the dishwasher and used time and time again. Since little waste is produced, the bottle is considerably more ecologically meaningful than water from plastic bottles.

The red dot design award is one of the most renowned competitions on the international design scene. Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen, the Design Centre of North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany, recognizes internationally outstanding design with its famous red dot. Manufacturers and designers of all kinds of different industrial products can compete for the award in 24 different categories – the BRITA Fill&Go belongs in the category “Sports & Leisure”. In 2014, a total of 4,815 entries were sent in by companies from 53 countries in the category “Product Design” alone. The seal of quality is awarded by a 40-member jury of high-profile specialists. The assessment criteria in 2014 were: degree of innovation, functionality, formal quality, ergonomics, durability, symbolic and emotional content, product periphery, self-explanatory quality, and ecological compatibility.

For BRITA, it is the fifth time since 2002 that one of the company’s products has received this seal of approval. Examples include, in 2009, the Navelia water filter pitcher model and, in 2010, BRITA Ionox Deutschland GmbH’s enviva water dispenser.

“We were, of course, convinced from the outset that in the BRITA Fill&Go we have a very beautifully designed product that stands out from the competition,” says Senior Product Manager Sven Schoevers regarding the good news. “Which is why we are so pleased that this has been officially confirmed to us twice in short succession.” The accolade is not only an honour for the designer, manufacturer and distributor of a product; it is primarily a sign of quality for the consumer and a strong sales argument in the shops. The awards event and the prize-giving ceremony will be held in Essen, Germany, in July 2014.

The BRITA Fill&Go was developed jointly with Ludwigsburg-based design agency pearl creative. pearl creative comes up with concepts and designs for products and product ranges for international brands and made a valuable contribution to the concept, functionality, and appearance of the water filter bottle.

Treat UTI during Pregnancy with DMannose

When a strong frequent urge to 'go' is accompanied by burning and painful urination, you're probably suffering from UTI. A urinary tract infection (UTI) is a bacterial infection in the urinary tract.
Urinary tract infection is most common in women, especially if they are pregnant. Pregnant women have an increased risk for UTI’s between 6 and 24 weeks into the pregnancy.
Physical and hormone changes in the urinary track during pregnancy often create the ideal environment for bacteria to flourish, which make pregnant women more susceptible to infection.
As the uterus grows, its increased weight can block the drainage of urine from the bladder. This stagnant urine is likely to cause urinary tract infection.
The increase of progesterone also causes the muscles that line the urine-making urethras to relax, which can allow bacteria to rise up into the bladder more easily than when you're not pregnant.
If the UTI goes untreated, it may lead to a kidney infection, which can be potentially life-threatening for mother and baby. Kidney infections may cause premature labour and low birth weight.
Urinary tract infection symptoms include:
·         Feeling an urgent need to urinate or frequent urination
  • Having difficulty urinating

·         Having a burning sensation during urination
  • Cramps in the lower back or lower abdomen
  • Having a burning sensation during urination
  • Urine that looks cloudy or has an odour
Pregnant women might not experience any symptoms, and it is therefore recommended  that all pregnant women get checked for this 'asymptomatic’ infection.  

UTI’s during pregnancy can be safely treated with DMannose. DMannose is a glyconutrient, or a simple sugar that might cross the placenta to the unborn child, but will have no more effect than a spoonful of sugar, according to studies.
Conventional antibiotic treatments may clear up the infection, but they also kill the good bacteria in your body, which can be detrimental to your health over the long term. DMannose is a pleasant tasting soluble powder that works quickly to stop UTI in its tracks by flushing the E.coli bacteria from your system, thus ensuring that the infection won't recur.

  • Convenience Pack (10 x 2g DMannose sachets) - R125.00
  • Value Pack (60g Jar DMannose powder) - R270.00
Delivery costs: R30 - R70
