Bluewater is a Swedish company dedicated to bringing fresh, healthy water to people who believe that the best water is purified water that comes from the local community – not bottled in plastic and transported from faraway places.
Back in 2013, Bengt Rittri decided to put a little human ingenuity to work – combining patented SuperiorOsmosis™ technology and the will to change the way the world views water. Bluewater purifiers make water safer to drink – with far less contaminants than tap water and without the contaminants floating around in single-use plastic water bottles.Learn More
