Okay so you've gotten over the bottled water hump, purchased your own canteen of sorts and now you merrily take water with you wherever you go. You can use a Brita or Pur filter at home when you leave in the morning, but what do you do once you get to the office and need to refill? Do you trust the water fountain or cafeteria sink? Not to worry, Wellness H2.0 is here.

More on Wellness H2.0 after the jump The End Bottled Water campaign, organized by Wellness Enterprises LLC, now offers a water bottle with filter in the cap to eliminate toxins and chemicals from your drinking water. Each bottle is only 7 ounces with the filter, thus not making the bottle unwieldy and it comes with a strap for carrying.
The bottle itself is made out of recycled plastic and includes a filtration system in the lid that eliminates 99% of toxins. The filter is designed to remove chlorine, chloramines, silt, sand, lead, sediment, industrial volatile organic compounds, tastes, and odors. The filter also includes Japanese volcanic stones which are supposed to aid in the absorption of water, reduce free radicals and balance the pH in the water.
The Wellness Water Bottle retails for $49.95 and the replacement filter retails for $20. You can purchase them online at End Bottled Water. While this is costly, using one of these bottles instead of regular bottled water is estimated to keep 1,100 plastic bottles out of the waste stream.:End Bottled WaterMore on Filtered WaterMake a Water Filter From Old TiresAll-Purpose Water Filters for Humanitarian ProjectsOvopur: A Water Filter That Looks GoodWater Filters From Clay, Coffee Grounds & Cow ManureBritish Berkefeld Gravity Filters: No Need for Bottled Water
