The Water Bag 

The product CuH2O is a basic concept to provide an alternative to bottled water. This vessel is like a regular water bottle but instead of plastic, the walls are made of a thick, densely woven canvas cloth also known as chagall in Hindi. This cloth gives the bottle properties comparable to a clay or earthen pot: it keeps the water inside it cold. Copper with its well-known anti-bacterial properties has also been used for this bottle. It is very commonly used in most parts of India, and it can keep the water healthy and germ-free for long periods of time. This water bag provides a healthy alternative to PET bottles and can last longer.
