Justin Wang, CEO, and co-founder of the company LARQ will appear on Shark Tank in hopes of landing an investor for his self-cleaning water bottle product.

Justin had concerns for the environment given the amount of plastic that lives in landfills year after year. He recognized the need for a product that was reusable and that didn’t contribute to additional waste.

Being someone who enjoys camping and hiking, he was constantly drinking water and needed a product that would allow him to access clean drinking water while limiting his impact on the environment.

Justin created the LARQ water bottle in 2017 and begin shipping the product in 2018. Since then, the company has grown immensely and had over $7 million in sales in 2019 and over $15 million in venture capital.

Hurry up and wait. 😩 That's what the Survivor 42 cast is now doing. We recently got word that Season 41 is in the process of being filmed in Fiji, but now, we find out that the Season 42 cast has reportedly been unable to travel there for filming, which has caused delays in the production of a new season.⁠
⁠
Survivor 42 was intended to be the spring 2022 season on CBS, with the network working hard to film back-to-back seasons in Fiji. 🌴 Currently, it looks like Survivor 41 is still on schedule to debut in the fall of 2021, but after that, it is unclear when the next season of the show can even be filmed.⁠
⁠
So why the hold-up? According to a report from fan site Inside Survivor, “a second outbreak of the highly infectious Indian COVID-19 variant over the past two weeks has seen the government impose new restrictions, including a ban on air travel in and out of the country.”⁠

All the details of what we might expect at our #linkinbio.⁠

Justin is hoping that one of the Sharks will invest in his product and assist his company with managing their growth.

What makes this self-cleaning water bottle special?

The LARQ water bottle has several features which sets it apart from other reusable water bottles.

Not only does it contain self-cleaning properties, but the water bottle is also self-purifying with no filter required.

The stainless steel bottle comes complete with a UV light which cleans the bottle and purifies the water at the same time. The technology used is LARQ’s patented PureVis UV-C LED technology, which is similar to what hospitals use to sanitize operating rooms.

The UV light is inside the lid of the bottle and comes with a rechargeable lithium battery. The technology is non-toxic, mercury free, and eliminates 99.9999% of bacteria and 99.99% of viruses.

The bottle also has the capability of keeping water cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to 12 hours.

Where to buy the LARQ water bottle

The LARQ water bottle is available through the company website and can be purchased in a variety of colors and sizes.

The cost ranges from $35 to $78 depending on the size and model. Consumers may also purchase various accessories for the water bottle including a neoprene sleeve with a carrying strap, and additional bottle cap, and a micro-USB cable to charge the UV light.

In addition to the company website, the bottle can be purchased through Amazon, and select retailers across the country.

Justin is hoping that his pitch will be appealing to one of the Sharks when he promotes his product on Friday, April 16.

Shark Tank airs Fridays at 8/7c on ABC.
