Reusing a plastic bottle you already have with Delios.
Delios filter can be fitted onto Platypus products as well as most plastic bottles used for fizzy drinks and certain types of bottles used for water.
With one Delios filter for natural slow filtration, you will save 2,000 (500ml) plastic bottles and 665 (1.5 liter) bottles.
Let's think about 1.5 litre bottles of water only. You will find out how much you are spending on them.
Delios saves 665 bottles of water. If you buy 665 bottles, they will cost you 299 pounds, if 45 pence per bottle, and 399 pounds, if 60 pence per bottle.
So, in addition to recording plastic bottles, Delios will save your money, too!
