Altered, partnered with the world’s most successful crowdfunding platform, Kickstarter, to go viral with the brand’s second campaign through the platform; a unique initiative that seeks to highlight a novel new product – Altered: Shower.
On December 3rd at 7 PM, Altered launches this one-of-a-kind campaign to crowd fund the Altered: Shower, so you can enjoy a great shower with 75% less water! Altered aims to raise Euro 40,000 through this latest campaign. The brand has developed this exceptional new technology for showers – the Dome®. It creates a rotating water dome, tearing water apart into very large drops at high speed. It gives you the coverage, pressure, and heat that you want for a nice shower. Just with 75% less water. This is great for you – and even better for the planet!
The Altered: Shower follows global standards and installs literally in seconds in showers across the globe. It is a way for everyone to be part of the solution. An average household will save 28.168 liters of water, 1407 KwH, 4920 kg of CO2 and, last but not least, €393 every year with this technology.
“We truly believe this is the simplest and best sustainable shower to date. And it is very important because by 2025 WWF has pointed out that 75% of the global population may face water shortage. Also, scientists now agree we have at most 10 years before the effects of climate change are irreversible,” remarks Mr. Mikael Abbhagen, Founding Partner, Altered, Sweden. “By creating very simple solutions, that everyone can use right now, we can have an impact on water stress and climate change – today,” he adds.
Some of the company’s clients include brands of the stature of The Taj group of hotels, Emirates, Unilever and Burger King, to name just a few.
