Make Chugg Your Next Adventure Buddy

We came together with a goal to make this UV-C technology accessible at any budget

With the goal of making clean water technology accessible, Chugg is using easy to use UV-C technology to keep your water free of harmful contaminants and germs. Based in California, Chugg is a purpose-driven family business helping bring clean water to our country's most hard-hit communities.

Clean water is a basic necessity, yet millions of people worldwide lack access, including in the USA. Over 2 million Americans don’t have access to clean water. With COVID-19 disproportionately affecting lower-income communities, the water issue has grown exponentially worse and, in some cases, is just an afterthought. Thus Chugg was born with a strong conviction to help fight the clean water issue and provide clean water for all.

While Chugg’s goal is big, they have decided to start close to home. Chugg is supporting the Navajo Water Project by donating 5% of profits to help with their goal to provide clean water to 100 families this holiday season. According to The Navajo Water Project, 1 in 3 members of the Navajo tribe do not have access to running water in their home and are forced to pay up to 67X more for the water hauled to them vs. piped water.

The Navajo Water Projects Ultimate Goal Is:

  • To develop new sources where water is pumped, treated, and stored locally.
  • Deliver water in food-grade trucks to hundreds of families living close to each source.
  • Provide home water systems that provide 1200 gallons of hot and cold water.

Product and Technology:

With everyone shifting their thinking and cleanliness habits in 2020, Chugg’s goal is to give individuals the tools they need to seamlessly transition into a new reality. A simple press of a button utilizes UV light to sanitize the water in your bottle. Specifically, UV-C light exposure is a proven technique to eradicate microorganisms and dechlorinate drinking water[footnote ref]. With its shorter, more intense wavelengths of light, UV-C has the power to deactivate microbes by destroying the genetic material in their DNA, thus stopping viruses from making copies of themselves. At the same time, its UV-A and UV-B counterparts are merely capable of giving you a nice suntan and sunburn, respectively.

Not only can you begin the clean cycle by activating the Gaia Mode, the Chugg bottle has a Gaia+ mode that will automatically cycle every 6 hours so you can have peace of mind as you continue your busy life on the go.
