Our story
NUOC (WATER in Vietnamese). We come from the water, we need it and we are water. Without it nothing of what we know so far exist. “There are already many trips and countries traveled in which unfortunately we have seen that a habit as natural as drinking water creates large amounts of plastic waste that, in large part, end up flooding our oceans.”Our trip through Vietnam in 2015 and the large number of plastic bottles we found thrown at each step was our turning point. Thus was born NUOC (water in Vietnamese).

That is our turning point, the need to rehydrate and protect our planet. Hence our obsession to create our reusable glass bottle NUOC, a lifestyle bottle, 100% recyclable, free of toxic agents (BPAA), with which to enjoy the pleasure of drinking water naturally anywhere, anytime, always protecting our health and respecting our planet. A square bottle with own style and personality, with a fresh and functional design inspired by fashion and active life and, most importantly, a bottle in which water tastes like water!
