Win a Gō-Ecō Reusable Water Bottle and KURO-Bō Kōins in IOL's #MyHeart competition.

Water quenches thirst.

Food quenches the body

Love quenches the soul.

So said Matshona Dhliwayo, a philosopher, entrepreneur, and author.

This month of love we'll leave the food and love to you, but we can help with the water part.

Win a Gō-Ecō 550ml Reusable Water Bottle and a year's supply of KURO-Bō Filter Kōins in IOL's #MyHeart competition.

KURO-Bō’s message is simple: It is now 100% easy and 100% convenient to create the best-tasting water using 100% natural filters that are kind to the environment and sustainably produced. And with zero single use plastic. It’s a promise!

Since launching in 2017, KURO-Bō has rapidly revolutionised water filtering in South Africa with their innovative use of Japanese-inspired activated charcoal (or “Binchotan”). After introducing their first Gō-Ecō 1L Bottle in January 2018, KURO-Bō has extended their planet-changing range even further to make their eco-filtering technology appealing to even more active people on the gō. 

Those seeking a more compact bottle and volume, will welcome the new 550ml Gō-Ecō bottle with a sustainable bamboo leak-proof lid and a removable neoprene sleeve that doubles up as a sports-grip and insulation.

Simply refill the Gō-Ecō bottle with tap water several times a day and each pack of clever detoxing KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal Kōins, specially designed to fit into the bottles, will purify, mineralise and pH-balance your water - anytime, anywhere, for 3 whole months. The prize includes 4 packs.
