NUOC es la primera marca española de botellas reutilizables de vidrio. EN NUOC CREEMOS EN UN DISEÑO RESPONSABLE, SOSTENIBLE Y SOLIDARIO: NUOC nació en 2016 con el fin de ser la alternativa perfecta al uso irresponsable de botellas de plástico de un solo uso, que en su gran parte terminan en el Mar, y de apoyar proyectos que luchan por conseguir que los lugares más desfavorecidos del Mundo tengan acceso a agua potable, porque ¡sin agua no hay vida!. NUOC dona el 10% de los beneficios de su colección Live, Love, Save para ayudar a resolver la crisis mundial del agua, creando pozos y dando acceso a agua potable en las zonas más remotas de Kenia. “Son ya muchos viajes y países recorridos en los que lamentablemente hemos visto que un hábito tan natural como beber agua crea grandes cantidades de residuos plásticos que, en gran parte, terminan inundando nuestros océanos”. Nuestro viaje por Vietnam en 2015 y la gran cantidad de botellas de plástico que encontramos tiradas a cada paso fue nuestro punto de inflexión. Así nació NUOC (agua en Vietnamita). Con sede en San Sebastián, la marca NUOC se presenta al mundo como una marca NUOC is the first Spanish brand of reusable glass bottles. AT NUOC WE BELIEVE IN A RESPONSIBLE, SUSTAINABLE AND CARING DESIGN:
