Frequently Asked Questions
The Spark To Go bottle uses small CO2 cartridges to carbonate the water inside the bottle. Each cartridge can make up to 3 liters of strong sparkling water.
Just insert the cartridge, close the lid, and press the button on top to make delicious sparkling water!
With our design you can choose just how much carbonation you want so it always tastes exactly the way you want it to.
We are aiming for a winter 2021/2022 release.
Currently, we are a small startup made up of just 2 founders. We are still refining the system with our manufacturing partners to work perfectly for when we launch.
The bottle will be available in Germany only at first.
We plan to expand into other European countries after that and eventually North America.
The first CO2 cartridges will be 20 gram CO2 cartridges. These cartridges are made from 100% steel and have a minimum recycled content of 25% in every single one.
It is important to purchase the CO2 from Spark To Go because we ensure that the gas is Food Grade and safe for human consumption.
We are working on a design for a refillable cartridge that we hope to have available in the future. Standard cartridges cannot be refilled, and we are looking into the sustainability case for refillable cartridges instead of only recyclable ones.
The 20 gram CO2 cartridges we will be using are 100% recyclable because they are made from steel. These can be thrown away with your regular metal waste where they will be sorted and melted down into new products.
Almost all of the trash thrown away in Europe is incinerated, including plastics. Metals are not incinerated because they can be recycled into new products an infinite amount of times.
Our motto is "make bubbles, not waste" and we do not want to create any new trash in the world. By using our system you can know that it is an entirely closed loop that starts with cartridges made from recycled content that become new metal products after they are thrown away.
If you are not sure that your local waste system does recycle metals, we will send you a box to return them to us, and we will ensure they are recycled properly.
In the beginning we will be selling the cartridges only on our website.
As we expand, we plan on creating partnerships with grocery stores so you can always get a cartridge if you are waiting for your next delivery to come.
You do not need a subscription to order and receive CO2 cartridges, but we highly recommend it.
We want this experience to be as easy as possible for you. With a subscription, you never have to remember to order more CO2 before you run out. Choose how much you need and let us do all the work.
With a subscription you can set the amount of CO2 you want, and forget about it. We will handle everything else and send you all the CO2 you need. You can always change your subscription by adding or removing the cartridges you want to receive. Once you determine your “sweet spot”, you won’t have to think about it again!
You can set your subscription however it works best for you. We recommend monthly packages to reduce deliveries in order to help the environment.
Of course, we can always send you more in between if you need it!
Simply log into your account and cancel the subscription. There is no required amount of time you need to stay signed up with us.
Absolutely! If you find that you did not use all the CO2 we sent you, feel free to log into your account and let us know.
If we don’t have to send you something you won’t use, we are happy! The whole point is to reduce the amount of trips needed for you to enjoy sparkling water!
Because we are in the development phase of the prototype we cannot say with certainty what it will all cost. We are working hard to finish the prototype while we speak with manufacturers. As soon as we know what it will cost we will let you know too!
