Guyot Designs, LLC., a leading innovator in outdoor accessories products, announces today their new creation, the TapGuard, is now available for early purchase at leading outdoor retailer, REI. The TapGuard, an activated carbon filter for wide-mouth bottles, significantly reduces the amount of chlorine and other chemicals in tap water. It will be exclusively available at REI just in time for the holiday season. TapGuard will hit the shelves of additional retailers December 12th.

The TapGuard fits directly in a wide-mouth bottle and works to eliminate the unpleasant flavors found in tap water. "It makes the water you drink, wherever you find it, taste better," says Guyot Designs co-founder Sloan Russell. “This isn't a 'purifier' that's going to take care of Giardia or seriously contaminated water. What it does do, is effortlessly turn safe drinking water from any source into great tasting on-the-go drinking water.” The TapGuard also fits into all 63mm wide-mouth bottles including CamelBak, Nalgene and GSI as well as Guyot's own Stainless Steel "Green Bottle".

Guyot Designs continues to operate and design its products with a green lifestyle focus. The TapGuard provides continuous bottled water taste without having to purchase a bottle of water every time. “Our hope is that people can use the TapGuard and an eco-friendly reusable wide mouth instead of buying a one-use plastic water bottle that may or may not get recycled,” notes Russell. “By using the TapGuard instead of plastic water bottles, you save 400 plastic bottles, 65 lbs of CO2, two gallons of oil, and $500!” TapGuard is also part of Guyot Designs carbon off-set program, C-Minus. Each TapGuard carries 50 lbs of verified greenhouse emission, which is more than carbon neutral, it is carbon negative. Visit www.guyotdesigns.com/cminus for more information.

The TapGuard is now available at REI and through Guyot Designs website with an MSRP of $14.95. With a lightweight silicone body, it comes standard with two replaceable activated carbon cartridges, each designed to work on at least 200 liters of water.

Based in beautiful northern Maine, Guyot Designs is a new type of outdoor products company—one where environmental and social responsibility, as well as corporate ethics, stand on equal footing with innovation, creativity, and quality. Guyot's creations, including the Universal SplashGuard, the TapGuard, the “Green Bottle” line, and the highly acclaimed FireFly LED bottle light, are available at REI, Eastern Mountain Sports, Dick's Sporting Goods, and many other outdoor retailers. To learn more about Guyot, including their first-in-the-nation “C-Minus” program, where emissions from product development and distribution are not just carbon neutral, but “carbon negative,” visit www.guyotdesigns.com.
