Portfolio Highlight: LARQ

Justin WangFounder’s Mission with Justin Wang,
Co-Founder and CEO of LARQ

My vision for LARQ started from my own personal struggles with reusable water bottles and wanting a more sustainable and design-forward option than what was available on the market. Then came the LARQ Bottle, the World’s First Self-Cleaning Water Bottle, and our flagship product. Our mission is to help people access clean drinking water easily and sustainably through our PureVis™ UV-C technology that eradicates bacteria, viruses and other bio-contaminants.

Clean water isn’t a privilege, it’s a right. And as members of 1% for the Planet, we pledge 1% of proceeds to bringing clean water to communities in need. We’ve already helped over 5,000 people get access to clean drinking water sustainably and diverted over 1,000,000 single-use plastic bottles from the ocean with nonprofit partners such as Well Aware and 501CTHREE.

LARQ pitcherOur goal is to become a 360º hydration company, innovating and disrupting the billion-dollar water industry with our proprietary PureVis™ UV-C technology. This year, we’re launching our newest product for the home, the LARQ Pitcher, the world’s first multi-stage filtration system with PureVis™ technology—the first of its kind.
